I love my two cups of coffee in the morning. The first one clears the cobwebs and allows me to take my morning meds. The second cup goes down nicely with whatever I am eating for breakfast.
But I have been spoiled since I have owned a Keurig brewer.
I have the perfect cup of coffee every time I brew one. I get to taste new blends and add to my favorites collection. It is one of the reasons I created this website. I want to be able to celebrate coffee the way it was meant to be had.
But Keurig brewers are notoriously not portable.
I was tempted to bring mine with me to Quebec when I went in June, but the fear of getting it dirty and (shudder) breaking it kept me from following through. I ended up cutting my vacation short because of lack of coffee perfection.
This made me worry about my sanity.
Am I losing it because I have become a coffee snob?
I took one look at this thing of beauty, and was instantly (not coffee related instantly) drawn to it. The rugged look of it was mesmerizing. When I saw it, it was like a cube, nothing was open. But as I played with it, I saw that it was sealed very well, so that it could be taken camping or to a jobsite – heck, even the beach! Anywhere you can plug this in, you can make killer cups of coffee.
Ok, I was still a little skeptical. Really? Take it anywhere? I have been to construction sites where the dust was so thick, you had to wait until someone moved before you knew they weren’t a sculpture.
I opened up the reservoir section and my mind was blown (small explosion):
Imagine my excitement! The reservoir comes out and is actually like a canteen, with a screw on cap to keep the water in and the dust out.
So this baby is now changing my vacation paradigm. I used to worry about going too far from my coffee maker, but now, with my power inverter built into my Jeep, I can plug in and brew a cup wherever I may travel.
If you don’t have an inverter in your car, I suggest one of these:
And here are a few coffee brews you should order with your CoffeeBoxx:
