With the function of a cafetière but in a handy transportable mug, the Zyliss Hot Mug is the perfect little coffee accompaniment for camping trips and picnics.
Just put in the ground coffee, pour on hot water and allow to infuse for a couple of minutes. Then, press down the mesh filter to separate the coffee from the sediment, and it is ready to drink. The lid will keep it warmer for longer, as well as allowing you to be on-the-go while you drink it.
It isn’t just coffee it can make, with any hot drink being possible. Whether it’s a warming cup of tea or a hot chocolate around the campfire, the easy function and storage make it possible.
When you get home, cleaning it all is as easy as popping it in the dishwasher, so you can get on with all the other things that come with having been away.
In theory, it should separate the coffee from the grounds, but a bit always got through when we tried it. It seems to come through a hole at the side of the plunger, which we guess is to relieve pressure when you push but seems a bit if a design flaw.
The filter also doesn’t stop the brewing process once it is pressed, like with some other models. This makes a bitter taste the longer you leave it.
It is available in grey, blue and red so that you can get one for all the family and everyone has their own to drink out of. It is plastic, and the handle doesn’t have the best grip, so this isn’t one for taking on your commute to work. But packing it along with your stuff for a day out at the beach or going on a camping trip is a great idea for no-hassle hot drinks.
