Stop The Presses

Kinto Cafepress MugWhat 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

    I would love to have this for my husband and myself. The french press concept extracts all the goodness out of the tea or coffee and makes a great cup.

  4. Heather Swanson says:

    a fun idea for the coffee lover

  5. Lindsey says:

    This would also be great for cold brew, which is super trendy right now!

  6. Joan G. says:

    Nice idea for a casual coffee drinker but it would not get used in our home – a full pot of coffee doesn’t last very long.

    I use my French press some of the time. Great with freshly ground beans. Just wondering if the cup filter lets any grounds get in your drink? Would be great for that one cup at a time coffee. Thanks for the review

    This would be great for camping

    Everyone needs two french presses. One for hot and one for cold! Super trendy!

    Would be great for some but in our household 1 cup of anything wouldn’t last long.
