Traveling is great. You get to see the world, enjoy new things but there's one thing that you may miss from home: great coffee. If the lowly coffee maker in your hotel room just won't do, you don't have to settle for less. Just make your very own French press with materials from the closet.
That's right! You can McGyver your way into a DIY French press by simply using a coat hanger, two mugs and a coffee filter (all of which are standard provisions in hotel rooms). The task will require a bit of elbow grease but you'll be able to enjoy a delicious brew in the comfort of your hotel room in just minutes.
The folks at Instructables have put together an awesome tutorial to guide you every step of the way. If you do intend to partake in this fun DIY project we do recommend traveling with your favorite coffee grounds because the coffee in your hotel room probably isn't that great. Plus, check out 31 coffees from around the world.
