Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Release ‘The Sabbatical’, an Even Bigger Coffee Lover’s Collaboration

Last year Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle Coffee created their first travel kit, which released just in time for the holidays. This year they’ve got an even bigger and better holiday collaboration brewing, and if you are stumped about what to give your favorite serious coffee drinker (even if it’s you), then The Sabbatical should be a winner!

Don’t take a chance that the next ecologically minded boutique hotel that you stay at, in that artsy little town you’ve been waiting to explore, will have a coffee-maker with a delicious local blend in the room waiting for you. Bring your own coffee kit, and know that every cup you drink will be splendid!
