I had a bodum polycarbonate version before, which was great, but dropped it / knocked it over a number of times & eventually cracked it, so that it leaked. This stainless one is much better. . More robust & the coffee will stay hot for 3 hours. . Should one want to enjoy it a sip at a time over that period .Freshly ground coffee, hot water just off the boil [92-95 deg c perhaps a touch of sugar , wait 4 mins+, push down the ‘press’. A perfect way to enjoy a real coffee on the go if you have a plungerless top from the polycarbonate version, spare. These also fit , so good for a take away coffee . ]
I would definitely recommend this product. I use it every day going to work. Once you remember to heat the flask with hot water for a few minutes before you make the coffee it will stay warm for 3 or more hours at least. It’s not leak proof, so best to keep upright.
Much cheaper than in storebrilliant for travel, however must be kept upright at all times as not leak proof. Keeps hot drinks warm for long periods of one and good use for cafetière.
- Looks good and works well
- Body Travel Mug a Bonus
- Well-made and works extremely well.
Bought my partner this for his christmas and he loves it. It’s not completely air tight so if you knock it over it will spill but that’s expected with the plunger.
This is my go to way of making coffee if im not inside my house. Makes great coffee and is easy to clean out. Much cheaper to buy this and remember to bring coffee than continually go to a coffee shop.

My husband loves this, he takes it work and has fresh coffee throughout the day.
This cafetiere is identical to bodum’s insulated mug with the addition of a plunger fitted into the lid.
Using this at work, really keeps my coffee warm as hell for hours.
I’ve bought lots of travel mugs over the years and this is definitely the best. The cup keeps the coffee really hot, i usually have to take the lid off for a while after my 45minute journey to work to let it cool down enough to drink. It has a screw top so very safe in the car, very easy to use and wash.
This cup/press keeps your coffee so warm it still feels likes it has just been made an hour later. Whilst i think this is a big improvement on my previous bodum cup, which didnt have the press, you dont get as much to drink because of the grinds at the bottom. So there is a bit of a trade off between this and the non press version. With this you can be out of the door , coffee in hand a little quicker and with less mess, but you wont have quite so much drinkable coffee.
Bought this to replace the plastic bodum travel press (which i’d had replaced twice and eventually got refunded on, as they cracked when pouring hot water into them) and this is a much better offering. Unlike the plastic version, this keeps the coffee hot for ages. I got it on offer for £18 which was only £5 more than the plastic ones i owned and its well worth the extra money.
Unlike most other travel mugs, this one has a plunger for coffee/tea and is a true vacuum flask. This means that, although it’s a bit heavier than others, it really does keep drinks hot for a *long* time — watch out when taking a drink even after a couple of hours. It also has a well-made clip for the drinking/pouring hole and the top screws on securely. The rubber grip makes holding easy, although the outside never gets particularly hot anyway due to the vacuum nature of the flask and the extremely low rate of heat loss. Overall, an extremely high quality flask and well worth the money.
Works well, keeps coffee warm and easy to use when on the go. 4* as minor issue with occasionally getting coffee granules in my mouth at the end of the drink. This is probably due in part to slightly over filling it occasionally.
I thought this was a great idea. Makes a really nice coffee for on the go and keeps it hot.
Worth paying a bit more for rugged materials. The plastic one is good but cracked pretty easily when it was accidentally dropped.
I have found this to be a great little gadget for making a fresh mug of coffee in the office. You need a supply of hot water as this is not a flask. So at home or in the office its ideal (or anywhere with boiling water), due to this its not really suitable for travelling and making a coffee on the go. Build quality is great, brushed metal finish and a nice rubber bottom is a nice touch. If you like milk in your coffee, then the best way i found is to add it before you screw on the lid and press the coffee. Once its pressed, there is no easy way of adding the milk short of pouring very carefully through the small mouth piece.
This product is so handy and makes me happy every single day. The quality is really good, i use it during the morning while studying and keeps my coffee hot for the whole morning. It’s a bit weird to add sugar and milk because you’re supposed to use a french press to make black coffee, but the taste still the same. The delivery was faster than expected and the packaging was in good condition. I expected a regular lid as well (i saw that some bodum french press mugs come with it) but it only has the one that you see in the picture.
I was forever making a cup of coffee and getting so engrossed in what i was doing, that before i knew it my drink had gone cold. This bodum travel cup has kept my coffee & other hot drinks hot for hours. The other thing i have noticed is the taste of the coffee hasn’t tainted, thank you, bodum for a great product.
Pretty good, could do with the ‘plunger’ being a little longer, there’s always quite a bit of the drink ‘trapped’ beneath the filter.
Brought this as a presentloved by the recipient and she uses it regularly for workcoffee now stays hotter longer.
Just amazing quality had to buy another keeps cooffee hot for hours.
He had been after one for a while and when i saw the good reviews it made my mind up as i was looking at quite a few. It’s strong, sturdy and can be used throughout the day and keeps the coffee hot.
Makes lovely coffee which keeps warm for ages, up to 5 hours. Only criticism is that you have to keep it upright or else it spills.
