Making coffee takes time, but for some, it could be drag to be waking up ten minutes earlier to brew the perfect cup of joe. Well, if that’s how you felt, then you probably need a connected smart coffeemaker like the Mr. Coffee 10-Cup Smart Optimal Brew Coffeemaker With WeMo. This latest and third product from the collaboration between Belkin’s WeMo and Sunbeam Products lets you brew, schedule and monitor the coffeemaker from anywhere via the WeMo app installed on your smartphone or tablet. With this WeMo-enabled brewer, you will have access to all the machine’s functions remotely, including scheduling the coffee brewing process as you see fit. As with most connected device, you will be able to monitor your Mr. Coffee coffeemaker from anywhere – all you need is to have the requisite ingredients readied inside the machine.
It will even alert you when the water filter needs to be change, or when the coffeemaker needs to be cleaned. And not surprisingly, it can be integrated seamlessly into WeMo home automation network. On the hardware aspect, Mr. Coffee Smart Coffeemaker features a vacuum-sealed, double walled stainless steel 10-cup thermal carafe, manual operation for times when you want to make do without your smart device, 96 degrees Celsius (or 205 Fahrenheit) brewing temperature, removable brew basket, and Mr. Coffee’s Optimal Brew Technology that promised a full pot of full flavored coffee in just eight minutes. Finally, a sleek, sophisticated black and chrome design that speaks what it has under the hood rounds up this modern, connected joe-maker.
The Mr. Coffee Smart Coffeemaker with WeMo is available as we speak with a MSRP of $149.99. However, we noted Amazon was selling it at $142.94, but it is apparently out of stock. Bummer. Another thing is, we notice the image shows the control and WeMo logo on the right of the machine on Amazon and Belkin’s website, but on the official press, it is supplied with an image with the control and WeMo on the left. Honestly, we don’t know what to make of that.
