Hamilton Beach brewing up connected coffee maker

Techstination feature for Friday, August 9, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      The well known Hamilton Beach kitchen appliance brand…with a more than one hundred year old history…is bringing connectivity into its line up.   The company’s test kitchen manager…Pat Schweitzer…tell us…first up is a connected coffee maker…

“How it works is you set your coffee up so you can get the app to prepare it whenever you want.  So no more trying to make your coffee when you wake up in the morning.  You can just have it ready to go and through your app tell it to start.  I would set my coffee maker to go, push the button for the app and then I can just use my Alexa Echo to say, Alexa, start coffee maker.”

And you can check in to learn when the brew is ready too.  Look for the Hamilton Beach connected coffee maker this fall.
