Smooth, Strong, and Free of Sludge

So you've given a French press a try, and you've found it a little bit… gritty, let's say. Enter Alexander Albanese's No Mess Coffee Press, which easily brews a cup of coffee as strong, but without all that residual sludge. Just fill the pod with ground coffee, add water, and plunge! The press uses pressure—not steeping—to brew, so your morning joe turns out smooth every time. Compact and easy to clean, this press is perfect for the office, at home, or on the go, even if it's not welcome in France. (Just kidding; even Parisians can't resist.) Made in China.

For a former student of physics, Alexander Albanese sure knows a heck of a lot about brewing coffee. In fact, his coffee press was the subject of his graduate thesis. Though his initial quest was simply to make an easier-to-clean French press, his designs soon inspired a completely new way of brewing coffee. And the name? Oh, that came from his reaction to folks saying, "huh, looks like you're making a French press" when they saw parts for it coming off the lathe at Northwestern University. Say it with us now: It's not a French press. Great job; you've got it down.

Well-designed Coffee Maker


I work in disaster relief and needed something that makes great coffee, packs small, could hold up to travel, and that needs no power (hot water is easy to come by. I've used it in Tonga, New Zealand, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Cuba. Best coffee maker for travel period. Durable construction. Beyond just travel I used it almost everyday because it's easy and takes no space in my kitchen.
