French press disaster

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.

French press surprise

I’m a huge fan of Bodum‘s French Press coffee mug. In a few minutes you make a large cup of freshly pressed coffee with minimal work and minimal dishes. I actually own two, one for work, and one for  home.

So I highly recommend it to my coffee drinking colleagues. One of them, Eli Seidner, got one too. I forgot to mention to him that he should wash it after using it, especially if you are going to leave it at the office and then go home for the weekend.

Below, Eli’s mug:
