On my most recent business trip, I took my French Press coffee maker and some fresh coffee grounds along, and made better coffee than my hotel or St*rb*cks could have supplied. I used the in-room microwave to boil water in the in-room glass coffee carafe.
I had tried the same thing about two years ago at a rickety motel. Before I could even brew any coffee, I closed the door to my motel room, and the walls and surfaces shuddered enough at that closure to toss my French Press on the floor, where it shattered. And my Press was ten FEET from the door!
