For you coffee addicts

Coffeeboxx, which I believe is from a Kickstarter campaign.

Self contained, 120V portable K-cup brewing system. A lot of marketing hype, but might be interesting if you're really into coffee.

I'm a slave to the bean, but haven't been impressed by K-cups. Our favored solution for morning go juice in the SMB is the Bialetti Moka Express. Small, stovetop unit that makes a seriously good cup coffee. Even better if you can grind your beans fresh.

I'm a big fan of the Aeropress. Low tech but great quality coffee. I picked up a metal filter for it so I don't need to buy paper replacement filters again. And it's cheap as well. I like the coffee from it enough that I use it at home when I'm not pressed for time.

Interesting.... I like espresso and my french press. But sure would be nice to have a coffee maker between the front seats for long drives!

Me? It's mundane but I have Starbucks for waypoints when navigating long distances. And a good thermos as a backup.

Thermos maybe?

About 3 years ago I bought a pound of decaf and a pound of regular French roast and started out about 70/30 then 50/50, eventually getting all the way to straight decaf. When it was done, I was done with coffee. At least on a daily basis. Only had it once all this year and that was after thanksgiving dinner.

I tried K-cups and decided not to like them. Heaps of trash and too expensive. At home and in school I only use pads and outdoors it's the good old italian Bialetti in 3 different sizes all the way.
Getting on my nerves, i.e. talking to me, before first cup of coffee in the morning could end fatal.

I've never had a cup of coffee - tried a sip or two, but really must be an acquired taste.

My thing is Diet Coke. I drink several "Super Big Gulps" a day when in the States. Coke Light, here in Mexico, just doesn't taste the same and I never drink it so I drink water.

My wife on the other hand is very particular about her coffee - I bring several bags south with me every trip.

She grinds it and drinks it "Black" every morning without fail.
