Electric drip coffee makers have come a long way since the Wigomat, invented by Gottlob, was patented in Germany in 1954. Before that coffee was brewed by hand or made in a percolator. While you can definitely see the family resemblance to the coffee makers of today, clearly much has changed since the Wigomat turned heads.
