Fans of George Lucas’s Star Wars universe have spent decades arguing about the origins of The Force. The fictional Jedi even have some real life adherents who practice the mythical religion’s teachings. But there’s a lighter side, too.
Unlike you coffee black. Take this R2-D2 coffee press. This is the droid you’re looking for first thing in the morning. R2-D2 works best on the dark side. The opportunity for jokes is irresistible, yet the press is also a great way to stay in touch with your inner child.

And why not start your morning with a good cup of the dark side? ThinkGeek has just the thing: a R2-D2 Coffee Press. It is a 4-cup (32-ounce) coffee press that looks a lot like R2-D2.
This is the latest in a long line of odd Star Wars branded merchandise. While some dismiss it as crass commercialism, others see this as an opportunity to further immerse themselves in the Star Wars.
The caffeinated droid mash-up sells for $39.99. The Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press will be available in November. Prre-order now on ThinkGeek’s website if you want one in time for the holidays.
And while you’re at it, check out these other R2 inspired creations.
This R2 coffee maker is much more serious. It is for the advanced fans.
And Star Wars inspired coffee should be stored in a Star Wars inspired mug. This one, though, is huge. Drink this much dark side and you’ll be bouncing off the walls.
This might be much more manageable. You could get two of these out of the R2 coffee press.
Or you can get one with a simple sticker on the side, which may make you seem less obsessive. Just by a bit.
And then R2 will make you some popcorn.
The message here is that you can get just about anything you want, except a working lightsaber.
