This travel mug lets you make great French Press coffee on the go

Amazon For regular coffee drinkers, balancing your morning mug with your morning commute can be a bit tricky. Personally, I rarely wake up in time to put on a pot of coffee for myself, leading to my eventual trip to a food truck or a Starbucks, depending on the amount of change I can gather from the depths of my pockets.

This past weekend, I tried out an Espro travel press in an attempt to address my morning needs. The Espro simultaneously serves as a French Press to brew your coffee and a travel mug to drink it in. As French Press is my preferred method when brewing my own coffee at home, the idea of the Espro was intriguing, and in experience, it was functional, although at some points frustrating.

First the benefits: you can get real French Press flavor using the Espro. The process is just as simple as a regular press: place grounds in the bottom, pour over hot water, wait a few minutes (four was recommended), stir, and press. My coffee was good; as delicious as you can expect Folgers to be. While my biggest concern with the unit was its ability to filter out the coffee grounds, I was surprised to find that my coffee had less sediment in it than when I use my actual French Press. Beyond the coffee it made, the mug sealed extremely well preventing any spillage, and kept my coffee hot for as long as it took for me to drink it, and definitely had time to spare.

My biggest frustration with the Espro was how little coffee it could hold. As someone who can easily go through three or four cups a day, a 12-ounce serving, no matter how tasty, was a pretty limited supply of Joe. Also, because of the design of the Espro, adding cream and sugar is a bit of a hassle; your best bet is to pour your coffee out into a separate mug if you want to make any modifications.

Overall though, I had a positive experience with the Espro. If you are looking for an alternative to your morning trip to Starbucks, it’s a solid way to brew your own coffee without having to put on a full pot, especially if you prefer it black.

Espro Stainless Steel Travel Press, $34.95, available at Amazon.

The Best Coffee Gear to Buy from Starbucks’ Online Clearance Sale

Last week, news broke that Starbucks would be shuttering its online store on October 1 in order to simplify the Seattle-based company’s digital offerings and focus more closely on integrating “digital and mobile customer connections into our store experience,” as a spokesperson told Business Insider. And on a day-to-day basis, the news that Starbucks is closing its online store probably won’t affect you—unless you love a good deal on Starbucks-branded gear and coffee accessories.

That’s because Starbucks is having a huge clearance sale in an attempt to clear out the e-commerce section of its website before the online store closes forever, and many items are deeply discounted. We’re talking half-off in a lot of cases, if not inching closer to 60 percent below original list price.

The bad news is that none of Starbucks coffee beans or K-Cup pods seem to be included in this sale, though that could change as October 1 draws nearer. But if you’ve been looking to stock up on Starbucks gear or try out a new coffee brewer, you’re in for a treat.

Here are some of the best buys that you can find on sale at Starbucks’ online store right now. Just remember that everything is final sale because, well, you know.

Pour-Over Coffee Maker

This pour-over coffee maker is branded with Starbucks name, but it’s made by Bodum, a company known for its high-quality coffee brewing gear. On sale from $39.95 to $27.97, this coffee brewer doesn’t require a filter and makes up to five cups.

Made from stainless steel that seems to be plated in copper, with a chic wooden handle, this is one stylish French press coffee maker—and it’s discounted by about 50 percent.

Even name-brand, non-Starbucks coffee brewers are on sale. This AeroPress usually costs $34.95, but’s currently available on the Starbucks website for $25.

Travel Mugs

Stainless steel travel mugs are usually dumb expensive. For example, this one, which comes with a carabiner-style clip as a handle, was originally listed at $22.95. It’s currently marked down to $9.99.

Or if you’re fancy, you could get this stainless steel travel mug that’s adorned with black Swarovski crystals for a steal: only $62.48, discounted nearly 50 percent from the original price of $125.

Holiday Ornaments

Sure, it might be a little early to start thinking about the holidays, but mid-August is also too early for pumpkin spice, in my humble opinion, and that hasn’t stopped Starbucks from launching the drinks in grocery stores during the actual summertime. So get this Swarovski-encrusted holiday ornament now, for over 60 percent off the list price of $49.95.

I don’t know why this is sold at Starbucks, but it used to cost $49.95 and now it only costs $24.98, so I guess you should buy it now, too.
