I was looking for an easy way to make coffee on board with the least amount of effort and the least amount of clean-up. Plus, the admiral doesn't drink coffee, therefore I needed a quick, clean solution. So, I was at the local Starbucks a week or so ago, and I found this unique little coffee press/thermal travel cup combination.

It is your standard thermal travel mug, screw cap, cover, etc., except this one is outfitted with an internal coffee press. So, all you have to do is boil water (clean, no mess thing to do on board), and then put the grinds and water right in the press/cup combination device. In about 4 minutes you have great freshly brewed coffee without having to clean-up a coffee maker, separate cups, etc.

:) Just thought I'd just pass this along.

Regards.

I also use a coffee press - they are great.

I looked at the starbucks one, but settled on one I got at Target.
The Target one was microwave safe - No 2nd container needed to make hot water - just nuke it and add coffee - Yummmmy.

That sounds good. Is this what they call a French press?

We also use the french press, the admiral actaully found one made out of Lexan so it will not break. I have to make sure I make the first pot so I can drink it. I like strong coffee but if she gets to it first the stuff is so strong a spoon will stand upright in the cup:)

Cool idea! How do you deal with the grounds? Do they get into the liquid you drink? If yours doesn't then that is a good unit.

I am not sure I no longer have the box. It is clear plastic has a black handle and lid. I know it is called a euro press. looks like nothing but makes an "eye opening" cup of coffee...

Mine's stainless, works great. The grounds stay out by way of the "press" which separates the liquid from the grounds. They recommend coursely ground coffee in these things. My Admiral uses very little coffee in her brew, so I let her take out what she needs and then add more boiling water until the spoon just falls over, although by adding more water, you can have whatever strength you desire.

Bed Bath & Beyond sells an "unbreakable" French Press that is outstanding! Makes the best tasting coffee ever! Takes up so little space!

I also have the Starbucks press. I love being up early, making a cup and enjoying great coffee sitting on the back of the boat, watching everything come to life.

Me too on the Aero press. You simply can't get a better cup of coffee at a lower price. I use it at home too. I'm a coffee shop to some extent and the Aeropress never disappoints.
