Bodum makes the coolest stuff! This is a purely wonderful idea, definitely going on MY Christmas wish list. I really must stop adding to my own list, I'm supposed to be shopping for other people. Oh well.
I have a little french press that makes good coffee, but I've often wanted to make more than 2 cups at a time, either for guests, or just to save me from having to get my butt out of my chair. The problem is keeping it hot. I could make a bunch of cups in my french press, I guess, and pour them into the drip coffee carafe, or a thermos, but what a pain! This cool item from Bodum solves the problem. It does double-duty as both a french press, and a thermal pot. It claims to keep the coffee hot for 2 hours, which is more than enough time for me to decimate the contents.
This would be the perfect gift for
me anybody who works in an office and wants to have good quality coffee at their desk. In fact, I found this via Cubicle Coffee, a cute little website dedicated to better office coffee.
And it comes in different sizes, 3-cup, 8-cup and 12-cup. The 8-cup size would be perfect for
me any small gathering, or me just making it through a morning's work without having to get up to refill.
