Gadget of the Week – Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press

Published on December 15, 2016

If you’re jonesing for a great cup of coffee right now, then this is the droid you’re looking for.

That’s right, it’s that time again when our team geeks out over some cool Star Wars merchandise. This time, it’s a nifty little gadget that combines our two biggest loves – the galaxy far, far away, and a steaming mug of java.

The R2-D2 Coffee Press, by ThinkGeek, is the perfect way for a geek to get her morning cup. Just put your coffee grounds and boiling water in the cute little guy’s glass body, brew for a few minutes, and then plunge. Voila! You’ve got about four cups’ worth of nice hot coffee in the time it takes to say “IT’S A TRAP!”

On top of being cute as a button, this coffee addict R2 is made of high quality BPA-free plastic, a food-quality stainless steel plunger, and a convenient handle; the glass carafe is detachable and dishwasher safe, so cleanup is as breezy as a Cloud City wind tunnel.

Ready to give R2-D2 a shot at brewing your next pot of coffee? You can pre-order this nifty coffee press from ThinkGeek for $39.99; orders placed now will ship in January, 2017 - just in time to sneak your mug into an early morning screening of Rogue One.
