Capresso On-the-Go Personal Coffee Maker

  • 16-oz stainless steel thermal travel mug, perfect for those on the go, or those wanting a quick single cup at home
  • Can use included travel mug or your own mug (up to 7“ tall)

How Things Work:

This Coffee Make features a large permanent filter that can hold up to 6 tablespoons of medium ground coffee for maximum strength, adjust strength by adding less ground coffee. On-the-Go also works with pre-packaged soft coffee pods for an even quicker brew and faster clean up. As an added convenience and safety feature, Capresso On-the-Go automatically shuts off after the brew cycle is complete. It also includes an On/Off button to save energy when not in use.

To brew a tasty cup, just fill the included travel mug up with cool water and pour into water tank. Add a little less water to the mug if you plan to add milk or cream after brewing. You can also use your own mug (up to 7“ tall). Use the mug to measure out the water before filling the water tank to ensure no coffee will overflow.
