The Portable Oxx Coffeeboxx Is Tough As Nails

The Portable Oxx Coffeeboxx Is Tough As Nails

I’m rough on things. My childhood nickname was Miss Destructo. When my husband proposed, he handed me the ring with a romantic “Please don’t break this.” So testing the Oxx Coffeeboxx, billed as the world’s toughest coffee maker, felt like a personal challenge. Made from the same burly plastic used in power tools, the 12-pound single-serve brewer can withstand 1,500 pounds of pressure—you know, in case you need to park a 4×4 on it. I punted it. I chucked it deep into an Appalachian holler. I flooded the water chamber. Doggedly, it spurted out cup after cup. In desperation, I lassoed the thing, threw a leg over my thoroughbred, and took the Coffeeboxx for a gallop. Dusty but not defeated, it percolated on. Oxx’s house-brand coffee, Workhorse, lives up to its name with solid if unremarkable flavor. Because the Coffeeboxx requires an outlet, it’s better suited to #vanlife than a campsite, but it’s a sound investment for any caffeine addict who happens to live with a Miss Destructo. $230
