Coffee brewing - french pressing options

A french press mug is a good option if you are on the go
and still want good coffee, made at home.

According to Canoe (an online store), this coffee maker is pretty neat.

They say: The perfect antidote to today's gulped-on-the-go, chain coffee shop concoctions that feature dubious ingredients (Pumpkin Spice?). Designed by a German born chemist and based on laboratory glass vessels, the Chemex employs gravity and a special paper filter to produce a superb cup of pure and simple coffee. Perfect for brewing after a good meal, the Chemex far outshines any electric coffee maker in aesthetic appeal, bringing functional good looks right to the table. Includes box of 100 square filters. Included in the Museum of Modern Art New York's Permanent Collection, it has been in continuous production for over 60 years.

We all know there are a lot of coffee maker options when we brew, so this might be a good one to try. In a pinch when don't have time to make it (what an excuse, right?) I go to Mama Java at 36th St./Indian School and order a cafe au lait for $2.50. It is cheaper than a latte, a good option for this frugal kitchen wench.

I am considering buying one of those french press mug jobbies. I have seen them at REI and Target (see picture above). They run less than $20 and considering the cost of getting your java on the street, it can help you save a few nickels.

Happy caffeinating.
