Tipit Insulated French Press

When it comes to brewing great coffee, the French press is a celebrated tool of choice for many coffee drinkers. Being avid coffee addicts ourselves, we’ve tried many models, and… let’s just say we felt there was room to improve upon the traditional design.  

We opted for a durable lexan housing – strong, lightweight, and nearly unbreakable – that could stand the test of time. Then we added a stylish removable silicon sleeve to help keep the coffee warm and your hand cool. Finally, we decided to take the guesswork out of the brewing process by creating a great little mobile app that helps you customize the coffee to your liking and achieve consistent results.


Simply Insulated
Tipit’s design features a silicone sleeve over the lexan beaker to help grip and insulate your coffee, keeping it warmer longer than your typical French press.

Easy to Clean
Every part of the Tipit, including the silicon sleeve, is dishwasher safe. This makes is quick and easy to clean.

Intuitive Brew App
The Tipit comes with an intuitive and easy-to-use mobile application that helps you brew the perfect pot every time.


Quick Start
Use preset brew times or create your own!

Create & Save Brew Times
Slide your finger vertically on the screen and brew time increases. Users receive feed back via a color shifting background, so they understand how strong coffee will be with the selected time.
