I am a big fan of Bodum’s French Press Coffee Mug, and so are cockroaches. It provides a fresh dose of morning caffeine with minimal effort, and I love minimal efforts, especially when it involves kitchen work or blog post writing.
The problem is that when you handle this thing the most, you do it before you have had your coffee. So today I put mine in a plastic supermarket bag, not noticing the lack of bottom in said bag. My mug slid accelerating at roughly 9.8 meters per second before coming to an abrupt stop when it hit the dreaded un-stainable carpet. A double-wall penetrating crack is not in the bottom corner. For now I can use my backup French Press Coffee Mug (yes, I have a backup) but I better get a new one. Bummer.
