This is the small form of the French press which you can carry while you are on the road. May be to keep one in your car. A classic one is an all-in-one French Press travel mug.

The only negative thing about these is, it doesn’t have a good seal. Some of the ground coffee might come into your coffee mug once the seal is loose. And the next thing you know, you will be spitting those out.

Thankfully, a company named Bodum has done the work for you. Their French press not only keeps your mug hot but also keeps the ground coffee out of your drink. You can check out the other company’s product as well if they offer the same deal.

The only negative side to this is, you cannot brew more than 15 ounces of coffee at once. If you have to take more than that amount of coffee, you probably should brew it on a bigger one at your home and carry a thermos.
