I bought a Palm Press at a coffee expo in New York in (I think) 2019 in anticipation of a trip to Japan in 2020. Well, we all know what happened in 2020 (and 2021, and 2022) but this year I finally made the trip and I've gotta tell you, having my Palm Press was a godsend. Hotels in Japan have a kettle, but only tea and instant coffee (ugh) but with the Palm Press, we were able to have great coffee every morning.
Most importantly, it makes great coffee. Secondly, it cleans up very easily. Third, the built-in filter means no paper filters required. Fourth, no glass to break (I found this out the hard way, when a mini French press shattered in my luggage once), and Fifth, it squishes down to nothing and easily fits in a suitcase or backpack.
My partner and I use a Chemex for our morning pot of coffee, but now that I'm retired, I sometimes feel like a mid-morning cup while I read the paper or do the crossword. Before, I'd use the Nespresso, but now I just use my Palm Press. Not only is it a better cup of coffee, I like the fact that there's no little pods to worry about buying and then recycling (or worse, cluttering up the landfill).
