Drinking directly from your French Press coffee maker is not only uncouth, but takes away from the coffee pots allure.  Plus you’ll probably end up with a mouth full of grinds if not a lap full of hot coffee.

The minibru Coffee Mug is effectively a french press but in a mug format.  To make a cup of your finest joe, you simply add coarsely ground coffee to the bottom of the cup, add hot water, and press with the special filter that is designed to be sipped from.   And best of all clean up is super simple.  Just remove and rinse the filter, and drop the glass cup into the dishwasher.

ThinkGeek sells it for $25.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
