The best Alexa-compatible coffee makers

Alexa-compatible coffee makers let you schedule when your coffee should brew, choose its strength, and much more, all through your Alexa voice assistant or mobile app.

The good news is that there are a lot of different options for coffee makers that work with Alexa, especially in comparison to other smart assistants. Google Assistant has many fewer compatible coffee makers, and HomeKit has almost none. It helps to know exactly what to look for when buying a smart coffee maker, too.

Decide which features you want: Should your coffee maker handle different types of brews and work with schedules, or do you just want to ask it to brew a cup when you feel like an afternoon pick-me-up? Browse the options that are available (and Digital Trends has reviewed many, many options), and then check the deals page to try and score a better value on the Alexa compatible coffee maker that catches your eye.

Through the Keurig Alexa Skill, you can ask Alexa to turn the machine on or off, adjust brew strength settings, and much more. This one Skill makes the Keurig K-Supreme Plus Smart the best overall choice for an Alexa-compatible machine.

The Atomi Smart Coffee Maker uses Wi-Fi to work with both Alexa and Google Assistant. It includes a 12-cup carafe with a reusable filter, two separate brew strengths, and more.

The Atomi Smart Coffee Maker is easy to set up. The machine generates a hotspot the moment you plug it into an outlet, so all you have to do is select that network during setup to get started. It also features a sensor that only brews the coffee when the carafe is placed on the heating pad, so you don’t have to worry about accidental spills.

When your coffee is ready, the Atomi sends a push notification to your phone and plays an audible chime. You can ask Alexa to turn the Atomi on or off, as well as shift brew strength from regular to strong.

The Hamilton Beach Alexa coffee maker is a Certified for Humans device, which means it is easy to use and manage. The smart features benefit users instead of making the coffee maker overly complicated. This 12-cup model is ideal for most uses.

You can ask Alexa to start brewing a cup of coffee, change the brew strength, or simply turn off the machine. Because it keeps its time synced through the Alexa app, you can easily set up wake-up routines in the morning so that you awake to the smell of your favorite grinds already in the pot and waiting for you to pour that first cup.

This smart device works entirely through Alexa, so there is no need to download a dedicated app that will only clutter your phone. After two hours, the Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker automatically turns off the heating pad for safety. You can choose between regular and bold brew strengths for when you need that little bit of an extra kick.

Alexa-compatibles smart coffee maker FAQs

Can Alexa control a coffee maker?

Alexa is more than capable of controlling a smart coffee maker if it has the functionality. There are not many coffee makers that work with Alexa, but those that do add more convenience to your morning routine.

Is Keurig Alexa-compatible?

Not all Keurigs work with Alexa, but smart Keurigs utilize the Keurig App, as well as the Keurig Alexa Skill, to grant the smart assistant control over making your morning coffee. You can adjust brew strengths, turn your coffee maker on or off, and choose how much coffee you want to brew.

How do I connect my Alexa coffee maker?

Each Alexa-compatible coffee maker has a different setup, but all are relatively easy to do. Follow the provided instructions either on the coffee maker or within the corresponding app or the Alexa app. You can also connect traditional coffee makers to Alexa with the use of smart plugs, but this grants limited control over the machine.

Smart home devices have come a long way over the past few years. Walk into any home improvement store or supermarket, and you’re bound to find a wide variety of smart lights, smart locks, smart thermostats, and an assortment of other “smart” gadgets. But one often overlooked category is smart plugs – tiny devices that plug into your electrical outlet and give your “dumb” electronics the versatility of a modern smart home device.

Beyond giving you remote control of your outlets, many smart plugs allow you to set timers or monitor your electricity usage. This makes them surprisingly versatile while still carrying an affordable price tag. Plenty of big names (like Amazon and Wyze) are producing smart plugs, but they’re far from your only option. Here’s a closer look at the best smart plugs of 2023.
