If Keurig and a French Press had a baby, it’d be this $8 gadget

Why make a pot when you just need one cup?

If you’re in the office and have a coffee pot available to you, you may never see the need for a portable press. But if the coffee at work is gross and awful (which, is too often true), perhaps you can make things a bit easier on yourself with a gadget like this.

The iCooker travel press has the convenience of a French press in a smaller, single-serve design. 


All you do is add a few spoonfuls of ground coffee, put it into a cup of boiling water and depress the plunger. Preload it and throw it in your bag, then you’ll have a quick way to prepare coffee exactly the way you like it, every time. It can also be used for tea, if you like.

For just $7.99, this little gadget is a steal. It’s BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, and sturdy enough to do its job time and time again. Looks like your on-the-go caffeine needs have been solved.
