9 Best Smart Coffee Makers in 2020

Most of us drink coffee now and again (or often), which makes it one of the critical parts of our day. If you’re one of those, you would know how important a coffee maker is. But did you know that there are smart coffee makers now that can significantly boost your coffee making abilities?

Some of them even can be scheduled and connected with your smartphone for convenient coffee brewing. We’re going to talk about seven of the best coffee makers in the market today in an attempt to help you find the best out there.

We also include a smart coffee grinder on this if you already have a machine and are looking for a device to grind coffee beans in a jiffy.

Smart Coffee Makers

Breville-Nespresso Coffee Maker

Breville-Nespresso might not be the most well-known name in consumer coffee makers, but we’re pretty sure that this one can do just about everything. First, the smart stuff: it has Bluetooth technology with intuitive LED alerts that can connect with your smartphone via the Nespresso App. You can use the app to schedule your next morning coffee, set up your own personalized coffee settings, order capsules for the brewer, and even manage your espresso machine maintenance.

There’s a lot that this Coffee Maker can do — you can do Ristrettos, Espressos, Lungos, and even Americanos (.84 oz. coffee and 4.2 oz. hot water). And of course, you can always pour over ice to create your favorite iced coffee and latte drinks. It has a pretty cool modern style as well.

Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System

Next up, we have the Hot and Cold Brewed System by Ninja. This one doesn’t have an app, but it does have a lot of cool gadgets and features built right onto the coffee maker.

It has something that they call Smart Basket Recognition, which is a system built into the coffee maker that recognizes basket and displays coffee or tea drink options. From there, you can select and change a ton of different brew options for various teas and coffees with the dial or with a touch of a button. You can even choose your strength — there are choices for Classic, Rich, Over Ice, Cold Brew, or Specialty.


Nespresso Expert Espresso Machine

De’Longhi is a brand synonymous with great coffee makers, and this particular espresso machine doesn’t disappoint. The Nespresso can handle four sizes of coffee, including Americano, Espresso, Lungo, and Ristretto, giving you the liberty to choose the quantity you like. The coffee maker works on the company’s custom capsules, with a 12-pack included for free with this particular product.

The device runs on Bluetooth technology, which means you can make a cup of coffee directly from your phone. Additionally, the machine can alert you when you’re running low on capsules and let you place orders for new ones from your phone.

This coffee maker sufficiently heats up in about thirty seconds, and automatically power off after 9 minutes. You can choose three temperatures for your coffee – medium, hot, and extra hot. It can only make single-serve coffees, however, which can be slightly inconvenient at a large gathering.

EzPro BrewGenie

This is a slightly more versatile coffee maker, as it can let you brew your coffee directly from your smartphone app. The build quality is not the best, but that’s not much of a sacrifice given that you’re getting a very decent smart coffee maker.

The BrewGenie can send you notifications when the device is running low on beans or ground coffee. One safety feature that I like here is that the pot doesn’t heat up if there isn’t adequate water in the machine. This keeps the coffee from getting overheated.

The supplied carafe can hold up to 8 cups of coffee at once, which is adequate under any circumstances. The app will remind you to set up for brewing the night before. This allows you to wake up in the morning and brew fresh coffee from your phone without moving from your bed. The app has several other controls on board to help you keep the coffee warm at all times.

Download the EZPRO app from the Play Store to wirelessly operate the BrewGenie.

Behmor Connected

This is undoubtedly one of the complete coffee makers you will find. It comes with a smartphone app, and is compatible with Amazon Alexa, allowing you to shoot up a voice command to make your morning cup of coffee. It comes with a stainless carafe, keeping the brewed coffee hot for extended intervals. In terms of functionality, you can create multiple profiles on the app, allowing you to brew a specific kind of coffee for each person in the family. If the smartphone app isn’t for you, the quick-start button on the device makes you a quick cup of coffee.

The company recommends a water temperature of about 195°F to 205°F for optimum performance. It is also worth noting that this is the world’s first smart brewer to be certified by the Specialty Coffee Association. If you have Amazon Dash setup, the coffee maker will automatically order beans or ground coffee whenever you’re running low, automating the entire process.

Mr. Coffee Smart Coffeemaker

This is yet another app operated coffee maker that allows you to brew and schedule your coffee as per your convenience. The brew basket can be easily cleaned by the user, which is a key feature for any coffee maker. It runs on Wi-Fi, and pairing it with your phone doesn’t take a lot of time.

It also comes with a stainless steel carafe, which is assured to hold your coffee hot for extended intervals. This can hold up to 10 cups at once, which is bigger than most coffee makers in this range. The WeMo app is easy to use and pairs with the device in an instant.

Breville Smart Grinder Pro

This is the sole coffee grinder on this list and features state-of-the-art hardware to keep your beans devoid of any unwanted grinding. There are over 60 settings to choose from, including French press to Espresso. It can hold 18 ounces of coffee beans at once, allowing you to get plenty of ground coffee at one time. You can even choose for the coffee to be ground directly into the paper filter or basket to save time.

While conventional grinders only allow you to use a handful of preset settings, the Breville Smart Grinder Pro takes coffee grinding to another level. What’s even better is that this coffee maker is available in more than one color option, so there’s plenty to choose from for the customers.

Atomi Coffee Maker

The Atomi Coffee Maker is another excellent choice for folks looking for a “smart” coffee maker. Since it uses wireless functionality, the Atomi Coffee Maker can start brewing from anywhere, automatically. Using the Atomi app only our smartphone, you can set on and off schedules from wherever you are in the world.

It’s a pretty larger coffee maker, with the glass carafe giving you twelve cups of morning wake-up goodness. This one even has voice controls with it, so long as you hook it up with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

Arzum Okka

The Arzum Okka is a unique coffee machine worth considering. It doesn’t work with a wireless connection or an app or anything but does have some pretty unique features. It only has a small 1-4 cups in capacity, so it’s more of a personal coffee pot than anything.

It has a smart overflow prevention system. When you start the brewing, a sensor monitors the brew, and if it hits a certain level, the Okka automatically stops the brew to prevent spillage.
