Makita Coffee Maker Runs on Power Tool Batteries

 |  |  |  |  May 30, 2018


Back in the day, there were a couple of summers I worked construction with a family friend. What I remember about those summers was miserable Texas heat and how many of the guys on the crew drank piping hot coffee even when it was literally 110-degrees outside. I also remember the abundance of Makita tools on the job site.

As it turns out Makita has just the coffee maker to keep construction crews, and anyone else wanting coffee on the go, in piping hot beverages. The Makita CM501D comes in blue or red and gets juice for making coffee from the same 10.8-volt, 14.4-volt, and 18-volt battery packs that work for its drills and other items.

The coffee maker will brew up a bit more than five cups of coffee with the most powerful battery packe. It works with a special stainless-steel mug, and works with ground coffee or special coffee pods. Pricing for the Makita coffee maker is about $112 in Japan, but the batteries and charger are sold separately. If you’re looking to import one now, you can find the cordless coffee maker on Amazon for about $175.
