Coffee has come a long way over time dating back to the early thirteenth century according to Wikipedia. Legend has it that people saw how the animals were acting after having eaten the strange berries from certain bushes, so they tried them. Being too bitter, they tried cooking them only to have them be too hard to eat. So, after boiling them and drinking the liquid result, coffee was born! Or so the tale goes....
The first coffee press was patented in 1929 most likely by a Frenchman, since they are known as French Coffee Presses. Even those have been changed many times over the centuries. Used to be you had a plunger and rod gizmo you had to try and use without spilling your coffee, but now, it can be as simple as putting one cup inside another. Allow me to introduce to you the new GSI Outdoors Commuter Java Press aka; portable french coffee press. Instead of the aforementioned rod and plunger gizmo, you have an inner mug that creates double wall insulation. The spill resistant flip top seals in heat and eliminates sloshing and spilling then conveniently unscrews to add cream, sugar or other flavorings or to simply stir.
The PLUS Foam sleeve adds even more insulation and adds a soft and secure grip. Add to that a non slip foot and a slim profile and your good to go with your new Java Press in your cars cup holder. The Commuter Java Press holds 15 oz and only weighs 10.4 oz.
To use, simply add 2-5 tablespoons of your favorite course ground coffee, depending on how strong you like it. Add 15 oz of water that is 200°, stir and allow to sit for approximately 4 minutes. After that, insert the inner mug, gently pressing the inner mug with the stainless screen filter down into the water until it stops. Remove the lid, add any flavorings, stir, replace the lid and enjoy! How much more simple can it be?!?!
I'm really excited about this little gadget and I know you will be too. Come on by here and let me show you just how simple and easy it is to use. Priced at only $19.99 it's a bargain you can't afford to pass up!
As always, Thanks for allowing me to share with you, what's new in the Camping Department.
