    Been looking for a good portable coffee machine for a while this looks awesome. For those of you without generators what kinda gadgets you carry for overnights? I always bring electric kettle and I have this jimmy rig setup with a sterno but this looks great.

    Cool idea but man I bet that sucks some amps out of those batteries. I wont how long it takes to brew a cup.

    It's definitely a nice idea for portability if you're an iron worker on the 87th floor of a skyscraper project. I use a Keurig one cup brewer on the boat. The one cup is nice because after each brew cycle it is empty with nothing left over to spill. We run it on our Honda but it should be fine with the right inverter as well.

    Single burner butane camping stove is lie $15 and then use teapot/French press or I just drink instant coffee. Super simple and fits in a small case that comes with it. Kenyon is the brand.

    Side benefit is that my wife wil usually make toast/bacon and eggs on it too so really starts the day off right.

    I hope the head R and D guys at Milwaukee are seeing this... Along with the cordless Fien saw.
