The First 100 Years: The 1940s

Mahlkönig Milestones:

25 anniversary mahlkonig

Amidst the many challenges of the 1940s, Mahlkönig proudly marks its 25th anniversary in 1949. A testament to the hard work and resilience of our team and the loyalty of our customers.

form and fuction design of EK43

The German Bauhaus school has emphasized the importance of functionality and a user-friendly design “Form Follows Function". Drawing inspiration from this philosophy, we paired this design ethos with a strong drive to innovate, culminating in the distinctive and today well-known shape of the EK43.

The Coffee Industry:

instant coffee

Instant coffee, which became popular during World War II, revolutionized the industry by making coffee more accessible and convenient for consumers. Soldiers relied on instant coffee for a quick and easy caffeine fix, leading to its widespread adoption even after the war.

coffee rationed scale

In the United States and other countries, coffee was rationed to ensure enough supply for soldiers and civilians. The U.S. introduced coffee rationing in 1942. Each person was limited to one pound of coffee every five weeks, significantly reducing consumption.

international trade agreements

The volatility in coffee prices during the 1940s led to discussions about international agreements to stabilize the market. While comprehensive agreements were more fully developed in the following decades, the groundwork was laid during this period.

coffee varieties and blends

The coffee industry experienced a boom as economies recovered and consumer demand increased. The prosperity of the post-war era led to greater disposable income, allowing more people to enjoy coffee as a daily indulgence. This period also saw the expansion of coffee varieties and blends, catering to diverse tastes and preferences.

 

Overall, the 1940s were a pivotal decade for the coffee industry, characterized by technological progress, increased consumption, and significant cultural integration. These developments set the stage for the coffee culture that continues to thrive today.
