The French Press Travel Mug – for when you want to enjoy great coffee on the go.

french press travel mug

The French Press Travel mug is a rare thing in today’s coffee business – an innovation that makes great coffee and doesn't cost too much either.

As we have written elsewhere, here at Coffee Detective we are big fans of the traditional French Press. It makes perfect coffee, allows you to brew any coffee you like, and it’s inexpensive too.

Recently a few companies have introduced travel mugs that include the simple mechanism of a French press.

Happy day!

Here’s how a French press travel mug works...

Grind some beans to a coarse grind in your grinder and add the grinds to the bottom of the mug. Then pour in hot water (not boiling, but just under). Sir the water and grinds, replace the mug’s lid, with the plunger fully raised, and wait for 3 or 4 minutes. Then push down the plunger, add cream and sugar if desired, and you have the perfect mug of coffee.

One quality example of a French Press travel mug is the Bodum Travel Press Coffee Maker.

The travel mug is insulated, so the coffee stays nice and hot...and it’s fresh brewed within the mug itself.

Or you could check out a more recent introduction into this area, the Impress coffee brewer.

Enjoy great coffee in your car, at the office, at a hotel...or anywhere else...

First, it’s a great way to make a single mug of perfect coffee at home when you have to run to the car and go.

And now think of those times you are stuck at work, in meetings, at hotels or even in airports.

Instead of buying the over-brewed slop you usually find in these places, just take a supply of your favorite coffee beans with you, and make a brew in your travel mug whenever you want it. All you need is hot water.

As for the coffee grinds, you can either grind enough coffee before you leave home and take it with you in an airtight container. Or, for the super-purist, travel with a small manual coffee grinder.

Most new innovations in the coffee business – like single-serve pod brewers -- are complicated, hi-tech and expensive.

The French press travel mug is just the opposite. It’s simple, inexpensive and makes great coffee.
