Pup-up Shop London Tape 111 Label

Pop-up Shop in the London Tube

To mark its 111th anniversary, Melitta is setting up a pop-up shop in London's Old Street subway station.

From 25 to 31 March 2019, various Melitta® products will be presented there, in particular the Pour Over range. Top Barista Celeste Wong will also be talking about the pour-over trend; an event for specialist buyers is also planned. Passers-by who want to try a freshly brewed Melitta® coffee can purchase it for 1.11 pounds. Melitta will donate part of the proceeds to the St Luke's Community Centre.

Our History
WKUP ffeel ffeel Logo

ffeel® and wkup®

Over the past 111 years, our innovations have created numerous new markets and set standards. Our latest coups: ffeel® and wkup®.

ffeel® is the first natural refreshment that combines the invigorating effect of cold brew coffee with the fresh taste of superfruits. wkup®, on the other hand, is a coffee shot – a concentrated hit of caffeine to wake and invigorate tired bodies. Both products are aimed in particular at a younger audience and expand our range of trendy and pioneering products. ffeel® and wkup® received the German Innovation Award in 2018 for their outstanding innovative character.
