With the abundance of R2-D2 products available, Star Wars fans might find themselves surrounded by themed items like a measuring cup set, garbage can, or egg cup, and realize that their kitsch-filled kitchen is missing something very important to complete the look: an R2-D2 French press. Now, coffee lovers can finally enjoy caffeine brewed by a friendly droid.

The Artoo French press—currently available on Amazon for $38—works just like any other coffee press: Just add ground coffee and boiling water, then push down on the plunger that emerges from the top of the droid's head. The device makes up to 32 ounces of coffee, or about four cups—enough for Leia, Luke, Han, and Chewie.
