It’s no surprise that the uber-popular Star Wars franchise has yielded yet more merchandise in the lead up to new movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but as a nation of coffee lovers Aussie’s might take notice of this one.
R2D2, the beloved friend who has no spoken dialogue — unless you count bleeping and colour flickering as ‘dialogue’ — has been made into a coffee press.
Like any coffee press you add your grounds and boiling water and after a few minutes of brewing followed by a quick plunge, you’re left with 900 grams of the good stuff, about four cups worth, which should keep you going until the 3pm afternoon slump.
The press will be available in early November for $60, and the whole thing is dishwasher safe which should make life easier when you eventually get around to cleaning it.
