As a French Press fan, I want to take my brew on the go. So I was very excited when I came across Liquid Planet’s Desk French Press Tumbler and they were kind enough to let me try one out. After a couple of months of testing, here is what I think. Even tea enthusiasts should read this.
The Desk Press Stainless Steel French Press Mug is made of 18/8 stainless steal and comes with the press and a regular lid, and you can choose from a variety of colors – black, chrome, green tea, lavender, mocha, paprika (seen here), and red.
The mesh of the press is smaller than a regular french press so it filters a little more, which I actually prefer. It also has a mesh filter in the lid where you sip to catch any residue that get by the first time. The only time I got any sediment was the sip at the bottom of the mug.
How to Brew
You simply grind your coffee course, like a regular french press, and measure your water by filling the tumbler up to the black line on the outside. This leaves a little room to put the press in easier (at an angle) and less likely to spill or burn yourself. Don’t force the press. It takes a couple of times to get the hang of it. Then it’s easy. Brew for four minutes as usual.
If you are a hard-core french press drinker, this is great to take on the go. It’s very easy to clean and you don’t have to worry about breaking and replacing a glass container. For $27.99 on their website, it pays for itself in no time. It’s easier to clean because you don’t have to worry about breaking glass. Just scoop out the grounds and rinse.
