Subject: Self brewing coffee mug
 

A few years back I had a coffee mug that had a strainer basket attached to the lid that you could put coffee grounds in.  On the outside, there was a lever that you could flip down, and it'd drop the strainer basket into the hot water.  Pretty simple concept, but it was ingenious.  However, I'm having trouble finding one on the internet.  Does anyone have any idea what it is or what it's called?  It's not a french press.

I'm stationed on the USS George H. W. Bush, and the coffee they make is God Awful.  So, I want to get another one of these contraptions and bring my own bag of coffee with me while I'm out to sea.

You may want to choose an aeropress just like what is suggested below. There are alot of options now that you can choose which one you prefer. Goodluck.

Here's another option that might be even better for you...

I think it's closer to what you're looking for. It sounds like a really cool device, but I haven't tried it.

I agree that the Impress would be a great choice. I have one, and it makes great coffee easily, and cleans up easily too.

The Impress looks interesting. That's one I haven't seen before.

I travel to many places with lousy coffee. The Aeropress & Hario mini slim grinder always go with me. The Aeropress is hard to beat for excellent coffee away from home.
