How can I make a fantastic cup of coffee at my desk at work? What equipment do I need?

We've recently changed our offices at work and are sort of starting fresh. When I first started here I as one of 5 coffee drinkers, but now I'm more or less the only one, so we got rid of our old and gross Mr. Coffee. I'm sick of buying coffee from one of the nearby coffee shops (Peets or some small local ones), because the coffee isn't that great for the money.
Last year at home we decided to stop wasting our time at home on bad coffee. We ditched the blade grinder and drip coffee maker in favour of a burr grinder and Chemex, and the coffee is good! The problem is that it's not always convenient to bring a cup to work, and I really like it fresh. How can I relatively easily make pour-over coffee at my desk? I don't have a ton of space, but I'd like a hot water kettle, brewer, and maybe a hand grinder. I was thinking about maybe a Clever Coffee
, but I'm open to suggestions. I'd like not to spend more than $100 all told. Part of this is to have awesome coffee and part of this is to have a sort of ridiculous set up at work to really make a cup of coffee a ritual and not an after thought. I am something of a coffee snob, so getting good beans isn't really an issue.
