Topic: A good Travle Press (7 msgs / 147 lines)
1) From: Dwayne Walker
Well after breaking my second Coffee Press while traveling I am searching  
for a Press that is monkey resistant. Any suggestions would be welcome at  
this point.

The Bodum Columbia stainless has been very good for me. Available through SM

Bodum (see and available at www.bodumusa.com) makes their lower line Brazil 
press model with available either standard borosilicate glass or unbreakable 
polycarbonate beaker. I've had the 32oz poly for 5 yrs travel use, no 
brokie. It does not have the standard plunger but a nylon or ? mesh with 
rubber/plastic outer seal to beaker. Works ok but not as well as my Swiss 
Gold plungers. A SG plunger would fit but likely ruin the walls of the 
polycarbonate beaker so I haven't.

right path, on the right path. Pricy though for a travle press. Thanks I  
had totaly missed that.

Yes! We have a winner. Same size as the one I use at home, Cheep enough to  
validate it's rare usage and see through! A big plus when a Monkey is at  
the controls. I have just placed my order (along with an extra beaker for  
my home press just in case)
Thanks to all you have helped me to find a solution (I actually feel kind  
of foolish as I looked right at that but didn't see that they offered them  
in polycarbonate) that I should have in my hot little (non opposable  
thumbed) hands before I have to head out of town again in two weeks.
P.S. If you think this is bad I am very seriously considering getting an  
espresso machine
