Anyone know of a way to cart around a French Press?

    I just recently bought a french press, and don't feel right just shoving it in my EDC backpack for two reasons. I bring it to work, since the coffee at work sucks... and I'd rather bring my own stuff.

    1. At the end of the day at work, it will be washed out, and may have some lingering moisture that I'd like to isolate the contents of my back
    2. It's made of some sort of glass, and not sure how durable it is... so a protective case for it would be helpful.

    So anyone know of any bags, cases, cozies etc, that might accomadate my 8 cup French Press

    One of the camera bags made to hold spare camera lenses? Covers number 2, but probably not number 1.

    Leave it at work and buy a second one for home or get a travel press mug, which many different designs are available. The Bodum FP I have is plastic/rubbery that the glass part slides into and it's 90% protected, but it's sizable to lug around.

    I was thinking along the same lines as Chiro - a travel-sized press, or a camping press.

    Failing that...what make and model is your press?

    I have a Bodum travel press/insulated cup compo which I bought from a Starbucks at Hong-Kong airport. It is all synthetic construction (no glass) and it works very well

    Maxpedition 12"x5" Bottle Holder might be perfect. It's padded/insulated to protect the glass, has PALS webbing so it can be attached to bags or you can attach additional pouches to the Bottle Holder itself, has a built in pouch to hold spoons, coffee grounds, sugar, etc, and has attachments for strap to carry as a standalone bag.

    Many people use it to carry their JetBoil cooking system, the fit is perfect. I believe my Bodum French press fits too.

    How about the box and foam that the press came in?

    Remember, big brother is watching

    Have had a couple of one cup presses. First one was plastic and broke after half a year. Second one is stainless and great!

    Yup, i came in here to say this exact thing. AeroPress FTW. Even better when you pair it with a Porlex Mini Grinder that fits in the top.

    Now to find a good pouch that fits the Aeropress (the travel bag is a bit flimsy). Thinking a custom one from 500D Cordura and a roll top.

    Also, good to know about the bag...I had wanted one :)

    Personally I prefer the aeropress to French press, better flavour IMO and it's dead easy to just clean off and chuck in your day bag.

    Funnily enough I use the same grinder! It's awesome man, highly recommend especially due to the ability to adjust the grind very easily.

    As SAKPlumber and Thepossum already beat me to it, I gave up a couple ounces in my backpack to carrying the Aerobie AeroPress. It's worth it - I liked enough to buy a second to stay in the office.

    I used to make my own coffee in my office until my (Chef) nephew showed me how to use a quality instant coffee mixed with a little very finely ground coffee bean to make an instant that tastes just as good as freshly made ,,,,and since then my coffee makers have gathered dust. I miss the ceremony and routine of percolating coffee but I love the facility and taste of my own instant mixes. I made fresh batches every week and kept it in jars in my filing cabinet. Coffee for the mornings was a Brazilian dark roast and afternoon was usually a Kenyan Peaberry,,,, Recently there have been similar instant/ground mixes on the super-market shelves so I guess I'm coming into fashion now :)

    "Tastes just as good as freshly made"? I have trouble believing that one, but then again, taste is in the mouth of the beholder, so if you like it, then that's all that counts!
