The intro article for the Oxx Coffeeboxx started thusly: “Every once in awhile a product comes along that is so intriguing that it evokes the visceral reaction of WANT.” Well, that reaction has proven to be right on. That has been the universal reaction to the Coffeeboxx, and it’s that visceral reaction that is its secret weapon.
Once past the aesthetics, however, the Oxx Coffeeboxx really comes to life. Yes, it’s a K-cup coffee maker and yes we all know how wasteful this coffee making process can be. Nevertheless, as far as this process goes, over the last month plus, the Oxx CoffeeBoxx has proven itself to be superior in every way to the K-cup machine next to which it’s been sitting.
It consistently delivers 194.8°F coffee at the bottom of the filter basket when making coffee. The dedicated hot water dispenser fills a cup with water a couple degrees higher and without any funk from the filter basket.
The life of this particular Coffeeboxx hasn’t been easy. The original plan was to cart this thing around to a number of rustic spots where tasty coffee would be made in the rough to the amazement of coffee-loving onlookers. To be honest, it never left the office once it arrived. There, it became the center of all coffee-related curiosities and needs, and since it is in an area that supports two departments at work, this thing got used morning, noon, and night. In a somewhat funny twist, once it was learned that the Coffeeboxx could support a lot of weight (1500lbs, according to Oxx), it became a thing to stand on top of it and be photographed.
Now that we’ve established that it is capable of producing hot water and hot coffee while supporting full-sized humans standing on top of it, it is time to share whether or not this Kawasaki Green coffee maker actually makes good coffee. Unshockingly, the answer to that question is a resounding YES. Thanks to its consistently hot water and somewhat slower brew time, the end result is a very tasty cup of coffee. These tasty results were consistent across all grades of coffee and pods.
So, in addition to it being tough and making good coffee, this is the point in the review that you get reminded that the Oxx Coffeeboxx has the largest capacity water tank of any K-cup coffee machine. This large tank has helped make it the go-to coffee maker at the office. Despite this, it still felt like every time I wanted to make a cup of coffee it was my turn to fill the Oxx. Such is life, I suppose.
