Artisanal influence has permeated mainstream culture in a variety of ways that can be seen with the 'Zliss' French press coffee mug, which enables customized coffee on the go. While traditional coffee mugs are designed to simply hold pre-made coffee, the 'Zliss' enables users to make it in the cup for the ideal freshness.
Working like a traditional French press, the 'Zliss' only requires users to place a scoop or two of their favorite grinds into the cup. After hot water is poured over them, the mesh plunger is inserted in to separate the grounds from the brewed coffee. The result is a perfectly perky cup of coffee that doesn't require a barista to achieve and is enhanced with a portable aesthetic.
