There’s nothing like the perfect cup of coffee to help start your day. But not all coffee maker are the same. According to the National Coffee Association, you want a coffee maker that can maintain a water temperature between 195 to 205 degrees for approximately 5 minutes. That’s where a smart coffee machine can help you. With the best smart coffee makers, you can brew at specific temperatures for a specific amount of time, so you’ll get the perfect cup every time.
Smart Coffee Makers that Work with Alexa
Behmor Connected Coffee Brew System
The Behmor Connected Coffee Brew System is the first smart coffee maker to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association. It lets you control the brewing temperature and pre-soak time from your phone. This means you’ll get one great cup after another, even hours after the initial brew. You can also set your altitude since water will boil faster at higher altitudes.
When you wake up in the morning, you can use the app or ask Alexa to start brewing your coffee. And you won’t have to worry about running out of beans again. The Behmor Connected Coffee Brew System comes with Amazon Dash Replenishment, which will automatically order your beans or grounds when you run out.
Smarter Coffee 2nd Generation
Another coffee maker that lets you brew from the comforts of your bed is the Smarter Coffee 2nd Generation Coffee Maker. You can either use the companion app with your iOS or Android device, or, if you’re feeling extra lazy, you can simply ask Alexa or your Google Assistant to start the brew. It also works with Nest and IFTTT.
Just like the Behmor coffee maker above, you don’t have to worry about running out of beans. The app will replenish your stocks for you.
The Smarter Coffee Maker comes with removable front panels in three colors: red, black, and cream. So you’ll know this coffee maker will make your kitchen look smart.
