Brew and Drink French Press Coffee On the Go

A french press coffee mug is a two-in-one unit, comprising a french press and a coffee mug that can be used as a travel coffee maker and mug. You can take it along when traveling and camping and it allows you to brew and drink from the same coffee press/travel mug unit.

The coffee is basically the same as usually a french press. You brew by heating water in a kettle, adding grounds to the press, pouring the hot water upon the grounds and "plunging" down.

You can, however, keep brewing on the go. You can let the coffee steep a little before pressing down, and a few minutes later, when already on your way, press down the "plunger" and finish the brew.

Insulated french press mugs with double walls keep the coffee hot longer while it's cold to the touch on the outside so that you can conveniently hold it without scalding your hands.

Coffee Press Mug Drawbacks

Some travel french press mugs, however, seem to have significant flaws.

One common noticeable problem even with better french press mugs is that the coffee grounds slip past the filter and it's not strained well. Using coarse ground, that is generally suggested for coffee presses, will do little to help in this case.

Another problem is the sugaring or creaming the french pot coffee, as it is not easy to add sugar or coffee creamer through the small hole of the lid.

If this is not much of a problem to you, the coffee press is a good travel coffee maker/travel mug.
