Comic about the woman who invented the coffee filter


Over at Backchannel, comic artist Andy Warner's illustrated the story of Melitta Bentz, a German housewife who in 1908 invented the coffee filter.

It's part of a series of "Innovation Comics" that I was excited to commission Andy to create as part of an Intel sponsorship on Medium.
