While using the machine, Kate notices that the water she poured inside the coffee maker quickly became cold. “If you’re traveling with this machine somewhere, you might want to wait to fill up your hot water when you get there,” she says.

When it came time for her to taste the coffee, Kate was pleasantly surprised by how it came out. “I was honestly surprised at how good it was,” she says in the vid. “I think this is great to have if you’re a camper [or] if you want to bring your type of coffee into the office.”
