With this handy drip brewer, if you find yourself on a long road trip with no Starbucks in sight, you can brew between 5 and 10 cups of coffee, depending upon which RoadPro model you choose. Just plug it into your vehicle's cigarette lighter socket, and you're good to go.
No spilling . . .
Don't worry about spillage, either. The carafe's design keeps the unit securely fastened in place while you're driving. This is a useful coffee maker to have along on camping trips, too. No need to give up on your caffeine addiction while you're roughing it in the great outdoors.
The RoadPro coffee maker 12 volt comes with a standard, basket-style filter and a visible water gauge.
A warming plate and a glass carafe with an insulated handle complete the package.
It's a nice, no-frills brewer, and you can find it on sale for less than $30 on various retail sites.
Convenient, but does it deliver?
Since this machine draws on battery power, it brews slowly. And I do mean slowwwwwly. Expect to wait 15 minutes before the first cup is ready. And 45 minutes for a full pot of coffee. (Yes, really.)
However, it does offer a Brew Pause feature, so you can grab that first cup and sip while the rest of the pot brews.
Another drawback is that it doesn't brew especially hot coffee either. But I don't think it's reasonable to expect scalding hot java from a brewer pulling power from a 12 volt source.
If you don't mind the long brewing cycle, and you really want to enjoy automatic drip coffee while you're out camping, the RoadPro 12 volt coffee maker will meet your needs.
