    This is the future!

    I've had my Smarter Coffeemaker for a couple of weeks so I decided it was time to give my opinion. I LOVE this machine! Let's start with the coffee. I love that you can choose to use the grinder or use pre-ground coffee. I only make coffee for myself so I usually just use the 4 cup setting. And for those of you complaining that you can't set it for less than that, 4 cups does not mean for coffee cups. It brews just enough (well, slightly more) to fill my favorite mug. Any setting less than that would be a waste. I have had to play around with the settings when brewing 4 cups though using the grinder. Sometimes the coffee is too strong even when using the medium setting. I adjusted the grind setting but I still need to play around with it. It's only an issue because of the concentrated amount of water being used. I don't think it would be an issue if you were making a full pot. I also love that you can just fill up the water tank and it uses the exact amount needed. Most machines use however much water is in the tank no matter how many cups you're brewing. Now to the fun part. I absolutely love being able to wake up and say "Alexa, start the coffee" and it does it! I'm sorry but that's so cool. The app is also really nice and easy to use. You can adjust the number of cups, strength, everything right from the app. I also love that the app works not only on wifi but also cellular. I can start the coffee brewing while I'm walking home and it's ready when I arrive. That's amazing! Granted, it's only been 2 weeks. But I can't rave enough about this machine.

    Alexa, start coffee

    Imagine rolling over and asking your Amazon Echo or Google Home to start your coffee, then listening to the grinder on your Smarter Coffee Marker making a fresh pot while you snuggle under the covers for a few extra minutes. The Smarter company has produced the perfect partner to the start of my day. After connecting the coffee maker to our home network, we have enjoyed perfect coffee, ground, heated, and perked in one attractive machine. The app is easy to manage and intuitive. While the initial connection was a bit challenging (using light from the smart phone was a new experience), the effort was well rewarded. The maker has performed well, and the coffee is perfect. The app also allows you to set up a geofence for those days when a hot pot of coffee is just what you need. As I get closer to home, my phone asks if I want a great pot of coffee.. When I say yes, the beans are ground and coffee perked when I walk in the door.. We had a small issue early on, and received the best customer service. Our issue was resolved quickly, and everything has been excellent since. Looking forward to new products from the company. By the way, you can also use ground coffee if you prefer. I just like the freshness of newly ground beans.

    I was waiting for this product to hit US for over a year. Grinder is working very well, coffee it's ok too. Main reasons I got it it's to control it with alexa. I already created applets in IFTT app so you are more them welcome to use them. Example: Alexa, trigger 2 cups of coffee. If you use Alexa without IFTT. You can only say Alexa, turn on "your device name" in my case it's coffee and machine will start brewing to last setting you had your machine set it up to. The App. If you set auto brew on your schedule, it also works as alarm clock. The bad thing is that you don't have the option to turn alarm off. So every morning your phone will ring when it starts brewing process. Warning: there's no instructions how to replace front face panels. Both of them top and bottom panels have buttons on left and right side underneath you must press in order to remove them. Main problem is with top panel. The button its located between coffee tray and top panel. You must open coffee tray and have very small finger to reach it in between. Overall Smarter is my new best friend.

    I honestly can not understand why anyone would give this smart device anything less than five stars. Aside from the great quality cup of coffee, the ability to customize and automate the brewing experience has helped simplify my life. The app is very reliable and I hope they continue to improve on the already great platform. I have had no issues with connectivity or the grinder. The Alexa integration has also been flawless. If you are a gadget geek like myself, this is a must have!

    Drip coffee has never been so fresh, convenient

    I was able to try out one of the first Smarter Coffee machines in the US. The experience was great. Normally I have to use a separate bean grinder, but this machine is all-in-one. My coffee tasted fantastic and I have it set up so I can brew it to my exact taste from the app. Being able to tell Alexa to brew me a cup when I'm busy taking care of other morning priorities it super convenient as well. I just dash into the kitchen pour my cup and go.

    I was pleasantly surprised how easy it is to control my coffee settings all from my smartphone app. The coffee tastes great and the features work perfectly. I will be getting Google Home next so I can link it to my Smarter Coffee.

    Nothing but praise for this machine. Can't fault it from setup to app to laying in bed and brewing using the Smarter app. It's so clever and couldn't be happy with the way it works in my home.
