HI 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. Dwayne-- Fumble Fingers, the Traveling Coffee Monkey.

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.

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. Dwayne P.S. If you think this is bad I am very seriously considering getting an espresso machine On Thu, 12 May 2005 10:38:04 -0500, miKe mcKoffee wrote: <Snip>
