Found 3rd Sep 2014
RRP is £27.00. Cheapest price I can find for the stainless steel version with extra lid is £19.99 including delivery.

Basically this is a stainless steel coffee mug with a built in French press. Pricey, yes, but appears to be the best reviewed out of all of these types of devices.

Super handy for saving a stack of cash at pricey coffee shops on the commute so should pay for itself in no time!

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Enjoy a single-serving of French Press coffee or loose leaf tea on the go with Bodum's Travel French Press. Silicone and mesh filter reduces sediment. To use: add 3-4 tablespoons coarse ground coffee, preferred milk and sweetener, and hot water to the mug. Stir contents, replace lid with plunger up, and go. After 4 minutes press down the plunger and enjoy. Stainless steel double wall design with a vacuum seal maintains heat for hours while remaining cool to the touch. This Coffee maker furthermore comes with an extra lid.

The link seems to point to the black version. Here is the link I used for the red version:

£7 in Tkmaxx. . they've sold out at my local one but I'm searching others to find them

I got one. The lid leaks from the middle, unless you keep it upright all the time. Makes ok coffee, but for travel I wouldn't trust it in a bag or even held in the hand. If you have a really good cup holder in the car you might manage without hot coffee lashing about, but a bit risky, I think.

On a personal note, I don't really drink my coffee during the commute. Busy reading a book, writing emails, doing something else. I have my coffee when I arrive at work. So my plan with this thing is to chuck a couple of spoonfuls of coffee in to it at home in the morning (or bring a bag of coffee to work). Make my coffee at work, rinse and repeat.

Should pay for itself within the first working week. Here's a scary thought though... here in Ireland, the barista near my work is €3.25 for a coffee. Over a 5 day week that's €16.25. Over an average year (approx 52 weeks) that's €845, or £675....on coffee!!!

In contrast, and using some purely hypothetical figures, a bag of coffee would be about €5 and last, I dunno, maybe a working month? So that's around about €60 a year. Saving around €785, or about £628 a year on coffee.

An utter bargain in my opinion.
