One True Thing: Bodum's Travel Mug
The Want: A travel mug that keeps coffee hot during your commute, won't burn your hands, and won't make you look like a truck driver—or too much of a yuppie. Geeks and neophytes alike should dig it.
The Get: Bodum's Double Wall Stainless Travel Press ($29.95, bodumusa.com). The stainless steel exterior is vacuum-sealed for maximum heat retention. Add boiling water to your favorite roast five minutes before you leave the house, then depress the plunger, and voilà—fresh-brewed coffee on the go. For java philistines, the mug also comes with a nonpress, secure latch lid.
