So you are on the road...you have roasted coffee, a hand grinder, a filtercone, some filters but no hot water. Hotel room coffee makers and single cup coil heaters won't get water hot enough. Gas station/convenience store hot water probably comes from a scale-filled pipe. Unless you have access to a stove and a pot, you might have to settle for commercial coffee. BonaVita felt the traveller's pain and developed a water boiler that's compact, works fast, is built tough. Aside from the 2 screws that sit above the max fill line, the inside of the boiler is seamless, with no hard-to-clean areas. This allows you to get creative with what you heat in it...soups, hardboiling an egg, etc. The cord is thick and the power button is located at the top of the easy-to-grip handle. It automatically turns off when your water reaches a boil. The removable lid has a very wide handle and allows easy access to the interior. Tight on space in your suitcase? Use it to store coffee, filters, an aeropress, etc. Making coffee for a small group? Boiling 2 batches of water for a pour-over into a large carafe is actually pretty convenient.
