5 Fun Coffee Gadgets For Your Desk


AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

This is about as close as we can get right now to a portable espresso maker. We know, we were supposed to have flying cars by now too, and that hasn't happened yet either. While you can't actually brew real espresso with it, it comes very close to the real deal. It can also produce several other brew types. It's incredibly easy to use, too. You just put your cup under the chamber, insert your grounds, and then pour hot water over them. Give it all a little stir, and then use the plunger to force the water through the grounds and your coffee into your mug. Plus, this thing requires no maintenance and is ridiculously easy to clean. This one comes with a convenient little tote bag too. So, when you're not using it, you can stow it away in one of your desk drawers.


Bodum French Press 3 Cup Kenya Coffee Maker

If the sludge that sits in the bottom of the coffee maker at work isn't remotely appealing to you, it may be time to take matters into your own hands with this little number. You'll naturally want to bring your own coarse ground beans. Other than that, all you'll need is some hot water. Since the reliable French press is easy to use and easy to clean, it deserves a place on any coffee enthusiast's work desk. As they also come in several sizes, you can also find one that doesn't overtake your workspace.


Plunger Cup/Thermos

How many times have you made yourself a cup of coffee at work, and after a couple sips, forgotten all about it? Between Karen's emails, and that report that needed to be turned in yesterday, it's easy to get caught up in projects. This handy little gadget will allow you to get sidetracked at work and have your coffee still be warm when you get back to it. It's a French press and a travel mug in one. We also love that its insulated, so your coffee will stay much fresher than if left to sit out in a regular coffee mug.


USB Desktop Cup Warmer

To further fight the good fight against cold coffee in the workplace, this little gadget is a must. Simply plug the USB into an available port and keep that coffee nice and warm. It's lightweight and made of solid wood and tempered glass.  It's safe to use with a variety of different materials. So, no matter if you're sipping your brew from ceramic, glass, or stainless steel cups, you're good to go.


ZOKU Iced Coffee Maker

Don't worry, we haven't forgotten those of you who like some cold coffee from time to time. Iced coffee can take a while to make, but not with this nifty gadget. If you have means to chill your cup beforehand, you can turn hot coffee into a chilled version in around 5 minutes. You can use this with any brewing method. It can fit under machines, you can use drip and pour-over methods, whatever you like. It doesn't even require ice, so forget about your coffee tasting watery. Work is about to get a lot more enjoyable.
