A while back, when a friend bought me a french press coffee maker, I found that it was easy to use and made the best coffee I'd ever had.
That is, until the second cup... that's when I found the press didn't keep the coffee hot. Faced with this dilemma, I met the challenge head-on with some wacky innovations...
While these ideas worked to varying degrees, each 'solution' created new problems:
- Decanting into pre-heated thermos. Oxidization from decanting affected taste adversely.
- Covering with tea towels. Ineffective.
Re-heating 2nd mug in microwave.
1. Inconsistent heat
2. Taste altered 3. Additional time and energy.
- Wrapping french press with oven mitts and elastic bands. Close! But crazy!
There must be a better way! The concept of keeping the heat in made sense...
After much consideration and coffee-inspired conversation with my wife and a friend, the perfect design came into focus.
And it worked!
