Stop The Presses
What It Is: You have likely heard of French Press coffee – where you ‘plunge’ the coffee beans (or tea leaves) down to make a fresh, on-the-spot brew without any gadgets or gizmos. But when brewing a full pot makes no sense, I’ve got a great alternative – Kinto’s Cafepress mug. This all-in-one unit is an awesome, double-walled French Press mug. Simply add your beans or leaves up top, pour boiling water over, and let it brew for a few minutes. Then press down and enjoy a fresh cup of joe (or hot bevvie of choice). It’s a must-have as we move into the cool months (already!?) Available in five neutral shades (pink and cream not pictured).
Who It’s For: Your coworker, as a just-for-me alternative to brewing a full pot of French Press coffee everyday. Your spouse, as a chi-chi way to enjoy their gourmand beans. Your sister, as a new way to brew her fave tea.
What It Costs: Each mug is $25, making it an ace choice for a houseguest or hostess present.
Where It’s At: I spotted them in Canada at ShopGrosche.ca
