Spotted via Joe barista and Sprudge pal Alex Berson, this French press from the design mavens at Freud is fearsome, beautiful, and oh-so butch. Details come courtesy of the boutique design retailers at Horne, whose website you should be surfing:

Freud's stainless steel collection relies on expert workmanship, skills in crafting metal, precision laser work and the ability to consistently produce items of the highest quality.

This traditional French press coffee pot is easy to use and beautiful to look at. Insert ground coffee, pour over hot water, allow to brew and then push the plunger down. The signature drip-free spout will insure a clean pour after which it is time to enjoy! Made from 18/10 stainless steel with wood handle. Hand wash only.

Don't worry about the “hand wash only” warning – we won't be able to keep our paws off this sexy thing! Now that the holidays are over, 'tis the season to buy something nice for yourself; Horne is now accepting pre-orders for these gorgeous pieces, with an anticipated mid-February shipping date.
