I was asked to help find something for a coffee lover, who wanted to be able to have good coffee at work. But something more interesting than a cafetiere.
We talked about the Bodum Travel Press Coffee Maker, but apparently that one’s been bought before. Whilst it does make good coffee, there is the design drawback apparently of having the dripping push down part to get rid of before you can drink the good stuff. Now whether this has been changed in design recently, the description would seem to suggest that now you don’t need to remove it, so maybe it’s improving.
The Aeropress Coffee Maker gets rave reviews in terms of quality produced, and it certainly produces great coffee very quickly. It sounds simple enough, looks good enough to draw admiring glances in the office kitchen, and apparently produces great results. But again, you’ve got to work out where to put it when you’ve brewed your cup, before you get to drink the coffee!
So I think we came to the conclusion that Minibru French Press Coffee Mug was probably going to tick the right boxes. The French Press produces great coffee, and the design means nothing drippy to remove before you get to your perfect brew. Three minutes, and your caffeine levels are on the rise!
In my book though there is only one way to get great coffee at work, or least at my work. I’m lucky to have Geraldine and Kelly in Costa who can always be relied on to brew up a fabulous latte. It’s my daily treat, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Ladies, you’re still the best!
