Automatic coffee maker


(CodyClasB) #1

Does anyone have suggestions about making (or buying) an automatic (or DIY) coffee maker ? I am thinking about a coffee maker that automatically make coffee in the morning . It has a small water tank (or connected to the water line) . A machine that you do not have to add coffee and water everytime you use)?

There are plenty of coffee makers that do this.
They have a water tank, and a timer built in.
The only thing a human has to remember is fill the tank and add coffee.
The timer starts, and fresh coffee in the morning, ready to enjoy.
Example: [Cuisinart DGB-550BK Grind-and-Brew 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Black/Brushed Metal][1]
There are even machines that have hold a bunch of beans, grind them, and get water from the main water line as well. However they are much more expensive and complicated.
Maybe I need my coffee first, but is this a proper example of what you are looking for?
Their are the examples that SmartThings uses: a dumb coffee machine, connected to a smart outlet. Cute but just one of many ways to solve a problem.

I call her sugar-momma. I never refill the water or the coffee.
