      It looks like right to me. Anything that boil the water seems to need 1K watt or more. Alternative is to use gas stove and instant coffee. SO you only need to boil the water on the gas stove, which you still need to buy but probably cheaper than the 1K watt inverter and then miz with the instant coffee.
