R2-D2 Coffee Press Is the Perfect Droid to Start Your Day off Right

Mornings are hard. Waking up from a peaceful slumber and rolling out of a warm bed can seem nearly impossible without the promise of a hot cup of coffee. For those who need some extra motivation to emerge from the covers, ThinkGeek has created the adorable R2-D2 Coffee Press. This friendly robot is happy to help a human in need (of caffeine), similar to the role the beeping bot played in the Star Wars films.

This iteration of R2-D2 takes the form of a French press device and works in the same way. You simply put in your coffee grounds and boiling water in its glass body, brew for four or five minutes, and press down on the the top. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy 32 ounces (4 cups) of hot java. He’s just the droid you were looking for to start your day off right.

The R2-D2 Coffee Press is now available for pre-order, and scheduled to ship in early November—just in time for the holidays.
