Coffee + Star Wars = Perfection

I’m a coffee addict. I’ll freely admit it.

As a result of my addiction I’ve ended up with both a nice collection of coffee mugs as well as a good range of different coffee making apparatus. Most of the coffee making equipment I have is more practical than aesthetic, though my recently acquired Kalita wave is also a thing of beauty.

Over on Think Geek, however, they’ve got a very appealing new addition to their range of “geek friendly” goods – an R2D2 Star Wars inspired coffee press.

It’s pretty slick looking:

I suspect it might be a little bit tricky to keep clean, but the “action” shots really make it worth the extra effort I think:
