Freshly brewed coffee on the run could become the norm thanks to a new travel-sized mug which promises to filter your drink at the touch of a button.

The Hey Joe Coffee Mug “brews filter coffee inside its insulated shell, offering a choice of three different temperatures. There is also a “warm-up” function for coffee that has gone lukewarm or cold.

The rechargeable battery-operated cup is divided into two sections – one for water and one for the finished product. Coffee pods are inserted into the mug’s central tray and the brewing begins at the push of a button – press once for 60°C), twice for 70°C, or three times for a cold-drip coffee.

A copper coil plate placed in the middle of the cup heats the water to the desired temperature, before it is dripped through onto the pod. Each of the Arabica bean pods is made from completely biodegradable packaging containing flower seeds, meaning it can be planted afterwards.

Users can also input their own coffee into the mug if preferred. Tea options are also being explored by the brand.

Currently listed on crowdfunding website Kickstarter, the Hey Joe Coffee Mug is expected to ship in November of this year to the first pledgers. – AFP Relaxnews
