Frothed milk made easy

Bodum Mousse Electric Frother

Sometimes the best meal is the one you make for yourself. Same thing goes for coffee. A cup of coffee freshly made from a French press is a wonderful thing. However, sometimes you want a little bit more than just a plain cup of coffee. Well, no need to run to the corner coffee shop, you can still make your own.

The Bodum Mousse Electric Frother is a simple to use battery-operated device designed to whip up froth and foam for your coffee drinks. It comes with a microwave-safe borosilicate glass carafe, so no worries about cold milk. Whether you prefer a cappuccino or a latte, your favorite coffee drinks are a whole lot closer with this little frother.

One cup of coffee at a time

Bodum Bistro Mug Press

For those that absolutely must have freshly-made hot coffee, here is the Bodum Bistro Mug Press. With the inclusion of a grooved lip, it is designed to rest directly on the rim of your personal coffee mug. Fill with your favorite ground coffee, let it steep and press down when ready. The result is a cup of piping hot coffee, (almost) ready to drink.

Like a French press, except on a small scale, the Mug Press is sure to create a delicious cup of coffee precisely to your liking. However, the lack of a carafe strikes me as unsettling. I don’t like running out of coffee, and I don’t know many coffee drinkers who do. I’ll stick to the French Press and the comforting thought of a refill just being a pour away.

Write-on mug, coffee right out

Does graphite wash away in the dishwasher? I may finally find out the answer to that, because I know I’m not going to be trying to erase my to-do list as I work my way through my day. At least not any list I write on this Write-On Glassware Mug. I have spilled way too much hot coffee over the years to go trying any fancy tricks when it comes to drinking my morning brew. Best to leave my note-making skills confined to flat, horizontal surfaces.
