If you are somebody who is truly on the go -- as in, so on the go that not only do you not have enough time to stop in at a coffee shop in the morning, but you don't even have time to wake up five minutes early and wait for your K-Cup to brew -- then worry no more: there is a new device on the market that seeks to help you get your much-needed caffeine dosage on the go.
The AnyCafe is a travel mug that actually brews coffee using single-serve pods for you wherever you are.
Real Simple reports that all you have to do is pop open the lid, and insert the coffee pod you want. Then, just add some water, close the lid, press the button, and tada! Fresh, hot coffee made anywhere.
"This is a first-of-its-kind travel accessory that gives those who are coffee-obsessed or constantly on the go a delicious, warm cup of coffee in just a few minutes," Logan Carlson, CEO of AnyCafe, said in a statement as reported by Real Simple. "We made sure our design is easy to use and filled with top-notch technology that makes using AnyCafe easier to use than a Keurig."
Eventually, the company even wants the device to be able to use coffee grounds and loose tea leaves, thus ensuring that your carbon footprint remains as friendly as possible while you're brewing your drink on the go.
"The AnyCafe Travel Brewer" is the vehicle for bringing coffee brewing to the mobile age. Never again will you have to go searching for that warm second cup," the company's Kickstarter page reads.
For now, the AnyCafe can hold 9.5 ounces of liquid, and is battery-powered. You can recharge the battery both in the car and at home. The mug is BPA-free, and you can pre-order one for $49.00 on the company's Kickstarter page.
AnyCafe has a goal of raising $75,000 by Tuesday, Dec. 13, for it to become the reality all of us coffee-addicted workaholics dream of.
