Coffee has always been the great friend of the most creative minds. Starbucks is something most people consume and spend hundreds or thousands of dollars a year on.
Entrepreneurs, artists, writers, hardly anyone gives up a good cup of coffee first thing in the morning. But you can have a “simple” coffee, or thanks to the new technologies, crowdfunding platforms and high doses of hipsterism, the coffee of your dreams. Because the future is already here and has crystallized into a coffee machine connected to the Internet, with its App for our mobile phone.
Because if they offer us the possibility of making coffee without having to leave the bed, why shouldn’t we take advantage of this wonderful opportunity? As a sample, we have selected no less than five “connected” coffee machines that promise us all the flavor of good coffee and minimum effort.
Best Smart Coffee Makers to Buy
The Brew genie is on the lower end of the price spectrum (you might be able to tell from the pictures). However the app is really cool and makes this a great smart coffee maker for someone who does not want to spend a lot of money on smart home gear.
The app allows you to control the brew genie from your phone.
Mr Coffee Wifi Enabled Coffeemaker
The Mr Coffee maker is both wifi and has Wemo enabled. It is possible to do really cool things such as have your fitbit detect when you wake up to start to make you coffee.
Behmor Connected Customizable
The Behmor coffee maker is a personal favorite of mine as it is able to…
The Nespresso Prodigio is on the upper end of our spectrum. It is able to be controlled with an app, which is the only reason is made this “smart coffee maker” list.
Nespresso lovers have the first coffee maker in Prodigio Connected with which they can brew their favorite coffee without having to separate from their mobile phone.
Unlike Spinn, Prodigio Connected does not connect directly to the Internet but matches our mobile phone via Bluetooth. We can program our coffee maker to serve us a “Voluto” or “Arpeggio” just after waking up. However, as we do not have our deposit, we will have to remember to charge the corresponding capsule before using the App. Not that it’s too cumbersome (it doesn’t cost us anything to introduce a new capsule after having enjoyed our coffee), but it certainly misses some of the magic of having an intelligent coffee machine.
As with other Nespresso machines, we can order our favorite capsules directly from the App, but unlike other devices, Prodigio Connected can detect how many capsules we have left and therefore order them for us if we want to.
Some up and coming coffee makers to watch:
Spinn is the latest attempt to make all the dreams of freshly brewed coffee lovers come true. The coffee maker, which at the moment can already be pre-booked in Kickstarter for $300 (delivery is scheduled for mid-2017) is presented as an Internet-connected device with which we can enjoy our espresso or cappuccino without the need to lift a finger.
Spinn can store almost 1.2 kg of coffee beans and has a 1.5-liter water tank, so unlike capsule coffeemakers, we don’t have to worry about “loading the machine” the night before to enjoy our coffee first thing in the morning.
Spinn’s great revolution, however, can be found in an App where we can program at what time we want our favorite coffee to be served, download and “roast” all kinds of coffee recipes and even order coffee when the machine detects that it is almost time to run out of our favorite beverage.
As a curiosity, Spinn is prepared to integrate with both Siri and Amazon Echo, so when we feel like that coffee, we can always ask Alexa nicely.
If we want to have coffee for the whole day, maybe the coffee maker we are most interested in is the one that Smarter. Am proposes. The British manufacturer presents its first coffee maker connected using the benefits of filter coffee.
Smarter. Am allows us not only to program the time at which we want to have our cup of coffee ready but also, taking advantage of the characteristics of this type of coffee makers, keep it warm for longer.
From the App we can also program how many cups of coffee you want us to prepare, depending on the number of people we are going to share our favorite beverage with.
Caffeine is the only thing that wakes some people up when they have to go to work or put up with those long days of stress that never end. If you are passionate about this seed, you probably have a coffee maker in your home. Of course, if you don’t have one, you’ll be looking for stores to get one. While you’re at it, I’m sure you want the one that best suits you, your needs.
In the market, you can find millions of types of coffee machines. From the simplest, we would even say, the most old-fashioned to the most complex, and with the best systems for making coffee. You can find them unique for different aromas, fast but practical, or slow but you prepare the best morning coffee, with the most intense flavor.
If you like coffee, you probably want to drink it at the same point, with the same amount of sugar or saccharin and milk. If you choose a regular coffee maker, you may not always find the perfect spot for yourself, or maybe you do, but not for another family member. Therefore, you should have one that remembers your tastes and those of the other people who live with you.
