It's hard to beat the convenience of K-Cup coffee packs, and the Oxx Coffeeboxx lets you enjoy them wherever you might be. The brewer itself is housed in a dust-proof, water- and impact-resistant shell that can withstand loads of up to 1500 lbs. yet weighs just 12. It can fit mugs up to 8" tall, and has options for 8, 10, and 12 oz cups, with a 30 second pre-heat and 75 second brew time. A 3-foot retractable cord and built-in handle make it easy to tote around, a 2.5L water reservoir lasts all day, and the separate hot water dispenser makes it good for making tea, oatmeal, noodles, and other things, too.
