Coffee powers productivity...right? Well if you are a lover of freshly brewed coffee, but have to suffer through the horrible instant supplied by your workplace then we have a solution for you.
We take a look at the top coffee gadgets that you can use at your workplace to not only fulfil your coffee cravings but make your co-workers super jealous! Oh and no...there won't be any USB cup warmers on this list, it's all serious coffee brewing business here.
Plunger / French Press
Yes, my firm belief is that this should be a staple on every coffee lovers work desk. The trusty old french press is simple to use, easy to clean and only requires a hot water source.
With the ability to chose a size that suits your needs, the french press offers a simple office coffee solution that produces a great brew.
Now this is my favourite! Think plunger and travel mug - in one! This is my weapon of choice at work. The plunger cup offers the convenience and ease of use of a french press, with the ability to drink straight from the thermos.
This means that the insulated cup keeps your fresh coffee hot for those times you get a little distracted. The other benefit here is that they are usually made from plastic instead of glass meaning they are unlikely to shatter and give your OH&S officer a panic attack.
Now this is a serious coffee gadget for a serious coffee geek. If you whip one of these out in the office, your co-workers know you mean business. The Aeropress is renowned for its ability to produce a smooth and rich brew thanks to the extraction process it uses. Unlike a French Press, the Aeropress passes the brew through a filter so you will have a grit free beverage to enjoy.
The downside? Well, it may be a little bit fussier to set up and clean than a simple old French Press. However if you put an emphasis on quality, this may be the coffee gadget for your office!
Koziol Unplugged Coffee Maker
The Koziol Unplugged Coffee Maker, brings power free percolator coffee to a desktop near you! Simple to use, just add your choice of pre-ground coffee to the filter, place a cup underneath, pour boiling water over coffee and in minutes you have a freshly brewed coffee!
Available in some funky colours this is sure to brighten up even the dullest of office desks.
