If, like me, you're not a morning person, then you know how important a cup of coffee in the morning can be. But if you're like me, you also enjoy sleeping until the last possible second, meaning you probably don't have time to make the coffee you so desperately need each morning. Enter GSI Outdoors and their upcoming Commuter Java Press, a thermos-french press hybrid that brews your coffee in transit.
The GSI Commuter is composed of two parts, an inner and outer container, mimicking the french press, which many coffee aficionados consider to be the best way to brew up some java. Although GSI isn't the first company to integrate french press design, they do some interesting, original things with their new product.
"Instead of the typical round filter on a plunger, the Commuter Java Press uses an "inner mug" with a filter on the bottom and the lid on the top," explains Gizmag. "The inner mug slides into the outer mug, creating a tight seal with the outer mug and keeping the grounds in the bottom while allowing their robust flavor to permeate the hot water above. It simultaneously provides a second insulating wall that helps to keep the coffee hotter for longer. So brewing coffee becomes about as easy as putting a lid on a cup."
What this boils down to is that for just a few seconds of prep at home, you can leave the house each morning with a delicious thermos of coffee brewing in your hands.
The GIS Commuter Java Press holds 15 fluid ounces is expected to his stores in the spring of 2013. It will likely cost $19.95.
