Even the best food could use a dash of ones and zeros. Geek out with us as we explore the intersection of food and technology this month.

Coffee geeks, rejoice. Thanks to mojoe, a new portable coffeemaker, you can now brew your own coffee on the go.

Set your alarm a little later. You no longer have to allot time in your morning routine for brewing coffee at home or stopping to grab a cup before work. Now you can brew your coffee while you commute.

For that afternoon kick, brew a cup at your desk and never make small talk in the office kitchen again.

Here's how the mojoe works: You pour any-temperature water into the water compartment and pour whichever kind of grounds you like into the filter, then turn the mojoe on by using the battery or plugging it into a power source. Your coffee will start brewing and will be ready in six to 10 minutes, depending on the temperature of coffee used.

You'll end up with about eight fluid ounces, or enough for one cup. If you take milk and sugar, add those items in before you hit brew.

The mojoe also doubles as a travel mug, so you don't need to tote around another drinking vessel. It's all right there.

And for all you coffee haters out there, use the mojoe to make tea and hot chocolate instead.

You can preorder the brewer now, and mojoe plans to have them out by May.

The catch? Beans. True coffee aficionados know that using freshly ground beans is the only way to go. So now you may also need to bring a portable grinder along for the ride as well. Mo' joe, mo' problems.
