Palmpress Portable One-Cup Coffee Press
The Palmpress is an ingenious new device that is essentially a collapsible French press. The durable plastic device looks like an over-sized hockey puck, but unscrew the lid and it pops open to reveal a silicone funnel. Add coarsely ground coffee to the marked line, pour in water that is just shy of boiling, give a stir and wait 4 to 6 minutes before inverting the press over a mug and pressing to extract. The flavor is bright and strong--just the way we like it. Perhaps best of all, clean up is a breeze: just scrape out the grounds and then give it all a rinse. There are no paper filters or pods to dispose of and no fragile parts to disassemble. Note: it produces 1 cup of coffee at a go.
Net Weight: 9.1 ounces
Dimensions: Height: 2.25 inches | Diameter: 4.25 inches
Materials: Inner: BPA- and phthalate-free stainless steel, LFGB-approved silicone | Outer: ABS plastic with TPR non-slip grip. Coffee does not encounter plastic.
Open Palmpress, tap grounds into trash, then wash filter cap and brewing cup with warm water and dish soap. Hand-washing recommended; top-rack dishwasher safe—avoid harsh detergents that can impart chemical smells.
Kinto Vacuum Insulated Tumbler
I have tried dozens of travel mugs/thermoses, and they all have shortcomings. They are either too big or too small; the coffee is cold after an hour; the pouring mechanism is awkward, making drinking a delicate act and effective cleaning nearly impossible. The elegant Kinto Vacuum Insulated Travel Tumbler solves these problems and more. It is not only aesthetically appealing but also smartly designed. There are two tops—the inner top allows one to drink coffee like a normal human while also keeping it hot. (There isn’t a spout, per se, but rather a narrow circular opening that directs a good flow of coffee so you don’t have to slurp!) And if you use the outer screw-top lid, this thermos won’t leak if you put it in a knapsack or car. Finally, the diameter is just right for picking up comfortably, even with smaller hands. Simple. Divine.
Kinto Capsule Cold Brew Carafe
If you want smooth, flavorful, iced coffee without a bitter bite, cold brewing is the way to go. This cleanly designed, durable glass carafe is fitted with a fine-meshed insert to hold and filter the liter’s worth of coffee. The filter pulls right out and the coffee can be refrigerated in the carafe. A unique top allows for spill-proof pouring from any angle. The Kinto also works for cold-brewed tea.
Eva Solo Cafe Latte Tumblers - Set of 2
Eva Solo's smart, attractive tumblers are a beautifully designed upgrade to your everyday mug. The sturdy, dishwasher-safe porcelain body is wrapped in an insulating and grippy silicone sheath, which makes for a secure handhold and helps maintain the mug’s warmth, ensuring your morning cup doesn’t go cold too quickly. Without handles jutting out, these tumblers command less precious space in cupboards. At 12 ounces, they are ideal for milk-enriched coffee drinks, like lattes and cappuccinos, or big cups of tea or hot chocolate (plenty of room for the marshmallows). Family-owned Danish company Eva Solo was established more than 100 years ago and is known for its modern, effective designs. The company still works with lead design agencies to prioritize marrying form with function in their products.
Fellow Stagg Pour-Over Set with Carafe
Extracting a perfect cup of coffee requires consistent water temperature: Too hot and the coffee will taste acrid, but too cold and the coffee will be weak and sour. From Fellow, a San Francisco startup that's a favorite among coffee connoisseurs, the Stagg vacuum-insulated dripper keeps temperature constant and prevents heat loss. Plus, the interior has a steeper slope than most pour-overs, maximizing contact between water and coffee grounds. A detachable bottom piece doubles as a drip cup and measuring guide. This taller XF model is designed so that you can fill up and leave to drip, combining pour-over and immersion brewing methods. The set includes a 20-ounce carafe made of hand-blown borosilicate glass, which has a longer heat retention and a double-wall construction—this makes the glass safe to touch when the carafe is full of hot coffee. We like how Fellow includes a silicone lid to keep coffee hot.
Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle
Coffee lovers never need compromise again with this electric kettle, which is not only stunning in appearance but also super-efficient. It's designed by San Francisco startup Fellow, a favorite among coffee connoisseurs for high-tech and easy-to-use equipment. Simply turn a knob on the base to select your desired water temperature—between 135°F to 212°F—and Fellow's product does the work for you, with no more guesswork. There's even an optional 60-minute temperature-hold function for morning multitaskers or those who want refills.
Designed especially for making pour-over coffee, Stagg back-weighted handle will keep the center of gravity close to your hand even when the kettle is full, so you're not struggling to steady your wrist or hold the pot up. And the elegant spout is narrower than other models, for precision pouring. To match any kitchen setting, the kettle is available in a chic matte black, crisp matte white or modern polished-steel finish. Choose between .9-liter or .6-liter models.

Eva Solo Tea Maker
This attractive tea maker allows you to brew tea exactly the way you want it. Spoon tannin-free tea leaves that can brew indefinitely directly into the glass flask. Insert the filter and the leaves stay in the flask when you pour. For tannin-rich teas that only need to brew for a few minutes, spoon the leaves into the filter instead. Fully depress the plunger after brewing for the desired time and pour - it is not necessary to remove the tea leaves or the filter. The tea maker is drip free and has a tip-up lid that automatically opens when you pour. The neoprene cover keeps your tea warm.
Eva Solo Lungo Tumbler - Set of 2
Eva Solo's smart, attractive tumblers are a beautifully designed upgrade to your everyday mug. The sturdy, dishwasher-safe porcelain body is wrapped in an insulating and grippy silicone sheath, which makes for a secure handhold and helps maintain the mug’s warmth, ensuring your morning cup doesn’t go cold too quickly. Without handles jutting out, these tumblers command less precious space in cupboards. At roughly 7.5 ounces, these modest tumblers are designed for use with pod-style coffee makers, though obviously work for green tea, strong cups of coffee or a hot toddy. For dishwashing, the silicone should be removed from the porcelain base.

Eva Solo Coffee Maker
I admit that I am a French press aficionado since it makes a clean, not over-brewed cup of coffee and is relatively easy to use. The CafeSolo is a great variation on the theme. Spoon ground coffee into the flask, pour over hot water, stir (they provide a stirrer), pop in the filter funnel with a flip-top lid, wait 4 minutes, start pouring. The CafeSolo has a 4-cup capacity. It also comes with a neoprene “coffee cozy” that zips up and keeps the coffee warm. And, unlike a French press, this system is easy to clean.
