Rock star turns love for coffee into e-business Brad Merritt/ 54•40 member has developed a cosy to keep 2nd cup hot

Whether it's idling time away on a tour bus, playing hurry-up-and-wait for never-ending interviews or laying down tracks at a studio, many a rock star kills time drinking coffee.
It's something 54•40's Brad Merritt knows about. After 20 years of touring, Merritt, 40, has tasted the good, the bad and the watery.

Years of touring exposed Mr. Merritt, a self-confessed caffeine addict, to cup after cup of bad coffee at greasy roadside cafes and cheap motels. Early on, he gave up on coffee shops and started making his own coffee with a French press. This created a new problem, however: The French press doesn't keep the coffee warm for very long. So Mr. Merritt set out to invent some sort of an insulator that would allow the press, or Bodum as it is called by aficionados, retain heat.
