            The Smarter Coffee Machine is a revolutionary new coffee machine that gives you fresh, delicious coffee at the tap of button, remotely from anywhere within the home. Available in 3 colours, (Black, Red or Bronze), the removable panels included in the box enable you to choose the right colour to suit you. The control panel also allows you to use Smarter Coffee in person if your phone isn’t nearby. Grind and brew fresh beans any time, by just pouring in your selected beans, choosing the coarseness of the grind then starting directly from your smartphone or control panel.

Decide on the strength of your coffee, between weak, medium or strong, to ensure you get the perfect cup. The warming plate can be turned on for up to 30 minutes to keep your pot of coffee warmer for longer

            Smarter Coffee Machine App on IOS and Android

            The new Smarter Coffee Machine App available on iOS and Android has been creatively designed to make it easy to control your Smarter Coffee machine remotely. Choose how many cups of coffee you would like to make, anywhere from 1 to 12 cups. The water level sensor feature shows you exactly how many cups you’ll be able to make. Tweak the strength of your coffee, keep your coffee warm and turn on wake up and home mode directly from the app.

            Key Features of the Smarter Coffee Machine

            • Control the Smarter Coffee machine from anywhere in the home via wi-fi, with the free App
            • Schedule alarms so you can wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee
            • Smarter Coffee welcomes you home, with a freshly brewed coffee, for that instant pick me up after a stressful day
            • Adjust the strength and amount of cups of coffee you want, straight from the free App
            • See precisely how much water is in the tank on the App and receive reminders on when the water is low

            Perhaps the best use of the app is that it makes some maintenance options easier. So rather than trying to figure out where the descale mode is, you can just open the app and tap descaling mode. This option gives you clear on-screen instructions as to what you’re supposed to do, so that you can quickly clean up your machine without all the fuss.

            Apart from that, you’ll need to clean the filter and filter holder after every use. Neither of them are dishwasher safe, so you’ll need to clean them up the old fashioned way –  by hand. Similarly, you’ll want to clean the carafe every time you use it. Finally, you should wipe the grinder shoot often with a soft, damp cloth, otherwise coffee grounds will end up stick to the underside.

            Conclusion

             Find best priceThere’s no doubting that this coffee machine is clever and the app makes descaling a lot easier than on other machines. I also like the built-in grinder, so you always ensure that you get fresh coffee. All that said and done, there are some issues with the machine. For starters, I was prompted to update the firmware, which interrupted the current brew cycle, effectively ruining a couple of cups’ worth of coffee. Next, this coffee machine is extremely expensive, even considering that it has a built-in grinder.
