Boston Globe Featuring BruTrek in Weekly Travel and Gear Roundup
Perfect your morning brew
Nothing beats a great cup of coffee to start your travel day. Bring your favorite blend and use Planetary Design’s new Basecamp French press to create your perfect cup of java. The French press, part of the company’s BruTrek brand, has a metal plate above the mesh screen on the plunger that stops the extraction process once you press the coffee to prevent a bitter-tasting beverage — ingenious. The French press has a double-wall, vacuum-insulated stainless-steel body that keeps your coffee hot for hours, proves easy to clean, and doesn’t leave a residual taste or smell after lots of use. The screw-on lid also helps prevent spills and retain heat, while the rubber base keeps the press from slipping around. It comes in 32- and 48-ounce sizes and works great with tea, too. $60-$70. planetarydesign.com.
