Star Wars fans, get ready to freak out every morning, cause from now on you can be brewing up your morning cup of joe in R2-D2!

Find out everything you need to know about the new kitchen tool right here, including where you can buy it.
1. What exactly is it?
The Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press is a 4-cup (32-ounce) coffee press built into the body of the world’s favorite Star Wars droid, R2-D2. Sorry BB-8! It is all manual, so you can pour hot water over your chosen coffee grounds and use the top of R2-D2’s head (so cool!) as the plunger handle to brew up your steaming hot beverage.
2. Who made this amazing coffee press?
The genius coffee press was created by ThinkGeek, an online store whose target consumer is computer enthusiasts and mostly “geeky” social circles. And, uh, some of us over at HollywoodLife.com would totally consider ourselves part of that group!
3. Where can I purchase the coolest Star Wars product ever?
On ThinkGeek’s site of course! Sorry, was that too obvious?
4. How much is the coffee press?
You can buy the amazing coffee brewing contraption for $39.99 in the United States. A little steep for a coffee press? Maybe. A little steep for a Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press? NEVER.
5. When can I buy it?!?
Sadly, the coffee press won’t be available till November. Cue the waterworks. BUT, you can pre-order the product now on ThinkGeek.com! Hooray! And just think of how much the Star Wars fans in your life will love it as a Christmas present. Or, you know, just think of how much you will love it for yourself.
