What if Coffee Could Make Itself?

30 October 2017 | Jillian Cheong

Imagine yourself waking up to a fresh cup of readily-made coffee for you to start your day, sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? Smarter, a London-based home tech brand has just made every coffee-lovers dream come true with their high-tech product.

If you’re a rather busy person and would like to spend a few more minutes in dreamland, the Smarter Coffee 2.0 will get you your caffeine fix in a jiffy! Whether you’re stuck in a jam or simply lazing around the house, you can grind and brew coffee with the Wi-Fi connected machine. The machine operates via your smartphone which makes it easier for you to access it anytime and anywhere.

The Smarter Coffee 2.0 looks like any standard coffee machine with a 12-cup glass carafe. It comes with a washable/reusable filter that pops open at the front. Personalize the machine according to your kitchen décor with their snap-on panels that comes in a variety of colours.

A cool feature of the product is its wake-up mode where you can set schedules and alarms to simultaneously brew your coffee so it is readily prepped by the time you head to the kitchen. Alternatively, the home mode utilises the tracking system in your smartphone to automatically brew a cup/pot of coffee when you’re about to reach home.

Smarter Coffee 2.0 also allows its users to personalize their cup of joe. Adjust the strength (weak, medium, or strong), grind coarseness and how long to pre-heat before brewing to your liking as well as the number of cups (maximum 12) you wish to brew via the Smarter app. You do not have to worry if the coffee machine runs out of water as the app lets you view how much water is left in the reservoir.

If you’re worried that your coffee gets cold by the time you get to it, the machine also has a warming function once the brewing is complete. You can set it up to as long as 40 minutes!
