This Tumbler Grinds and Brews Your Coffee On The Go
We all get by with a little help from our friend caffeine. But on too many occasions, time runs out and we can’t make a fresh cup of coffee before rushing out the door. And then there are the moments when we just want a fresh brew on the go without the expense of visiting our favorite barista. But now there’s an all-in-one tumbler that’s turning coffee making into a portable activity so you can get a freshly roasted caffeine fix any time.
Cafflano is the all-in-one tumbler looking to fix your coffee cravings whenever, wherever. The hand-mill grinder, filter dripper and drip kettle all stack up inside of a thermal mug that gives you the ability to become a mobile barista. The components of the mug are made up of a variety of tough materials that may make it even more durable than your at-home brewing machine: stainless steel, ceramic, silicon and polypropylene. So say buh-bye to that countertop space sucker and hello to this resilient cabinet/car/desk dweller. That mobility does come with a $99 price tag, which is steep but still cheaper than constantly cafe-hopping.
While this brewer is a multi-faceted “singular” device, it does take some work to get that coffee from whole beans into a perfectly brewed cup. First, you have to turn those whole beans into grounds by pouring them into the hand-mill, where you manually grind ’em up until they fit your liking — unless you’ve bought a pre-ground bag ;) Once that process is complete, take out that grinder, pour the grounds into the dripper and pour some water over the top. Then the brewing process begins. Once the dripping action is complete, take out the drip kettle and enjoy your freshly brewed cup of joe in the tumbler. One problem it seems the company hasn’t solved yet is what to do with the other pieces while enjoying that coffee, so bring a bag or container for the dirty components.
After getting your coffee making DIY on, prep some homemade creamers for that mug and enjoy a majorly creative cup!
Would you get the Cafflano and how often would you be brewing coffee? Let us know in the comments.
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
