If there is one appliance in your home you would like to be intelligent, it’s probably your coffeemaker. After all, it’s tough to use your brain when it hasn’t been properly caffeinated, so it’s nice to know that you don’t have to think in order to get your morning cup of joe. Here to help you do just that is Gourmia, which is set to unveil a new line of connected coffee makers at the International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago.

All of the new coffee makers will be compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and integrations with Windows 10 Cortana will come soon. Of course, the devices will also be remotely accessible via the Gourmet mobile app, available for both Android and iOS. The same app can also control a number of other appliances in the Gourmia family, so you can cut down on clutter on your smartphone.

The new models also boast artificial intelligence capabilities that purport to make it easier for the coffeemakers to learn about your preferences and make coffee that suits your taste buds. You can even set different preferences for different times, so if you tell the Gourmia maker to “make me my usual” cup of coffee at 6 a.m., it can be a different brew from what you get at 3 p.m.

And with the convenience offered by our special smartphone app, coffee aficionados are afforded complete control from virtually anywhere. These units truly epitomize our goal to provide smart appliances for smarter living.”
