The GSI Personal Java Press comes with the carafe and a nesting cup that packs all the parts into one compact set. The Split-ring plunger design and stainless steel mesh virtually eliminate "blow-by" for the most mud-free coffee. The included cup has a sip-it lid and EVA sleeve to keep your coffee hot longer. The press has a capacity of 20 oz. enough for a couple of cups and also has an EVA sleeve. The package comes with instructions on how to brew and poor your coffee, and how to stow everything back into a compact bundle measuring only 5.5" tall by 4.25" diameter. This is a brand new item, in it's original box.
