If you’re like me, you need coffee in your system in order to function in the morning. The problem is, the times you need coffee the most are the times you’re the least capable of operating appliances. Or maybe you’re just not able to make a cup that tastes as good as your local coffee shop. No matter the issue, it would be great if you could just summon the perfect cup using your phone, so that it’s waiting for you when you walk into the kitchen.
The good news is, you can. Smart coffee makers have been around for a few years, and while they still haven’t eclipsed non-connected coffee makers in popularity, they offer much more control and convenience than convential models. We’ve included the best we’ve tested here, but it’s important to understand exactly what type of machine you want before buying.
