The Brisk Brew looks like the perfect accessory for the caffeine addicted who go to bed every nigh afraid they won’t get their fix in the morning. It’s a compact auto-drip coffee maker that can be packed down even smaller, allowing you to take it anywhere. It has a permanent mesh filter so you don’t have to carry extra paper ones, and will brew an 8 ounce cup of coffee in just minutes. It even includes the coffee cup, a collapsible measuring spoon and compartments for sugar and powdered creamer.
But since I can’t remember the last time I was in a hotel room that didn’t have a coffee maker, or at least some sort of coffee shop in the vicinity, I’m not sure why anyone would waste luggage space bringing this along. It’s not like you can take it camping either, since the species of Douglas Fir tree that included an AC socket went extinct years ago.
Organize.com carries it for $44.99.
