College Students Return to Campus

It is that time of year again! College students are starting college, returning to their dorm rooms and returning to their apartments. According to consus.gov in 2017 there were 18.4 million students attending college. That sounds like a lot of people needing to hang pictures, build furniture and fix things around their dorms or apartments. So, what of course, what do they need? Cool items from C Larboard and Defiance Tools that will make their life easier!

Which Gadgets Should You Choose?

1. K-Cup Pour Over Coffee Mug

The most popular single serve coffee system in America is the K-Cup. We discovered this K-Cup Pour Over Coffee Mug that uses any standard K-Cup pod and has a precision metered water valve to create a perfect pour over style coffee. If you want to use your own ground coffee, we’ve included a reusable K-Cup capsule that you can fill with your favorite coffee.

To use, simply unscrew the Lid and pull out the Inner Cup, turn it over and open the capsule tray. Insert the K-Cup pod into the Capsule Tray and then close the tray. Insert the Inner Cup into the Outer Cup and pour hot water into the Inner Cup. The metered water valve precisely controls how fast the water pours over the coffee grounds and flows into the Outer Cup.

4. Insulated French Press & Coffee Grinder Combo

A French press makes a great concentrated cup of coffee, but they are usually designed of glass and not an easy device to travel with. We discovered the Insulated French Press To-Go and now we can make a French press coffee anywhere in the world. Not only does it press the coffee, it serves as a double insulated cup to drink from and take on the go with you!

This is the perfect beverage tool for coffee lovers college students who still want a custom cup of joe in . No coffee brewer needed, just hot water and ground coffee, wait for 4 to 7 minutes, press down and enjoy. So easy. You can also make cold brew by adding the normal amount of ground coffee and cold water, but don’t insert the press, just screw on the drinking lid and let it sit overnight for 9 or 10 hours. When the time is up, unscrew the lid, insert the press, press down and enjoy!
