XPress Lid - Plastic One-Use French Press

Has anyone tried this product?

Coffee is brewed by combining freshly ground coffee with hot water in the cup, and snapping the XPress lid on the top of the cup. After allowing the coffee to brew a few minutes, the barista or customer depresses a supplied rod which moves the press down into the cup. When the press snaps into place, the coffee grounds are trapped at the bottom of the cup. When you hear the click, it’s time to drink and go. Condiments can still be added, by removing the lid, adding them, and then replacing the lid.

Saw it at Coffee fest but did not get a chance to try -initial reaction was way too much packaging and cost - the whole concept of single use should be discouraged given what is happening our planet.
