French press coffee is always more delicious than standard pot coffee. This is not debatable, this is fact. The problem of course is the fact that if you want french press during the daily grind, you’re going to have to buy a press and leave it at the office. Inevitably, the cleaning lady or one of your nefarious co-workers is going to “borrow” it and you’ll never see it again. There’s a more convenient and also more permanent option – the Blackbird Bird Boy Vacuum Travel Press. It might be named like a Batman sidekick gone wrong, but everything else about it is pure genius. The 10 ounce travel tumbler has french press built into the top of the mug so all you have to do is add the coffee and the hot water for french press on the go. Since it’s mug and press together, it’s also one less thing you have to clean.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
