Planetary Design spent three years researching, designing, and testing the Ovrlndr, a French-style press that provides the opportunity to make a cup of coffee that can travel. Though it will not fit in a cup holder, you can drink directly from it after your coffee is brewed.
The company also offers stackable Camp Cups which hold 8 fluid ounces and are perfect for a morning cup of joe or an adult beverage after the day’s journey is finished. The double-wall insulation prevented my hand from feeling the heat of my coffee while maintaining the right temperature to enjoy. The press and cups are available in a pleasing assortment of colors and textures, including my favorite, obsidian.
The press features a Bru-Stop plunger with a distinctive cupped shape, plate, and filtration screen that prevents over-brewing and restricts grounds from reappearing in your mug or your mouth. The press also filters loose tea leaves, whether you choose a cold or a hot brew. With a 28-fluid-ounce capacity, you can share your beverage with fellow travelers. The double-wall construction retains the heat, so your coffee is still ready when you are. With the removable base, this press is easy to clean, leaving a fully satisfying experience.
