Chris King Espresso Tamper

For cyclists who love making their own coffee, Chris King presents to you the Espresso Tamper. Made from stainless steel, the espresso tamper was created through a partnership between Chris King Precision Components and the America Barista & Coffee School from Portland, Oregon.

Since the company already had other kitchen items like the salt and pepper shakers from anodized hubshells, the Espresso Tamper is another novelty item Chris King decided to venture in since it also matches its own coffee, Chris King Precision Blend Machinist’s Brew and Rocket Brew.

The Espresso Tamper comes in three sizes (53 mm, 56 mm,and 58 mm) and in four colors (pretty and strong pink, brown, gold and red). It has an aluminum handle, a base depth of 10mm and stack height of 83.5mm. It weighs 446 grams and retails for $75.

Royal Racing launched a flip book for their 2011 line of clothing (which we will show shortly), but we felt these two jerseys needed some shine by itself. Royal Racing will release soon two jerseys, one short sleeve and long sleeve made with real coffee beans!

Known as the Royal Racing Java jerseys, each use a “SE Cafe” material that claims to combat odor and moisture. Comfort is still a big play, while the sleeves are pre-curved. Highlights are 1/4 zipp neck, mesh side panels, zipped pockets located at the rear, and flat locked stitching.

The short sleeve Royal Racing Java jersey comes in sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL and colors Olive, Red, Charcoal. Long sleeve is available in Red, Black, and Burnt Orange with sizes XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL.

Scallywags Coffee Brake Mug + Coffee

We at Bike Reviews work late into the night, and as you can assume we get very tired. Luckily for us we had a chance to review the Scallywags Coffee Brake Mug plus some Rwanda Rwabisindu Bourbon Coffee provided by Scallywags on one of those nights.

The Scallywags Coffee brake mug is solid, using a double walled insulated stainless steel mug so you can keep your coffee hot for the late nights/early mourning’s. The 14 ounce mug is a nice size for any coffee enthusiast, or someone needing a jump start, and the Rwanda Rwabisindu Bourbon tasted well (although I am not a coffee drinker, but I was fond of the taste).

One thing is for sure, this mug will catch a lot of attention! This is due to the brake lever for a handle, and this is not one of those plastic handles, but made of stainless steel….
