Eva Solo Cafe Solo Coffee Maker
If you like the taste of french press coffee, you'll love the Eva Solo.
It's basically a glass carafe with a neoprene zippered cover to keep the coffee hot and a cylindrical filter built into the lid.
You put your ground coffee in the bottom of the carafe, fill with hot water, stir and wait 4 minutes. When you pour the coffee, the filter keeps the grounds out of your cup and you are left with an excellent tasting cup of coffee.
The cup is cleaner than that from a french press with very few if any grounds at the bottom.
The neoprene cover keeps the coffee hot for about an hour so if you are going to take longer than that to drink the whole batch, you will want to use a thermal receptacle of some kind.
The Cafe Solo is a bit expensive ($90) for what you get but if you want an excellent cup of coffee I can't recommend it highly enough.
Editor's Note: This is a very exotic coffee maker and one we had never heard of before. But we love the design. You can get it at a better price, $72 at the time of writing, through Amazon.com
