Staying warm and caffeinated every day of the week is a must for some people. A basic drip coffee pot can do the trick, but a smart coffee maker can brew the perfect cup on its own, offering complete control at the same time. That’s what you’re getting with this list — the very best smart coffee makers you can buy.

The best smart coffee makers:

  1. Nespresso Vertuo Espresso Machine
  2. Atomi Smart 12 Cup Coffee Maker
  3. Goat Story Gina
  4. Hamilton Beach Smart Coffee Maker
  5. Smarter SMC01

Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list of the best smart coffee makers as new products launch.

1. Nespresso Vertuo by De’Longhi

The Nespresso Vertuo is a versatile coffee maker with a large 54-ounce tank capacity. It can handle five different single-serve coffee or espresso cup sizes, and three temperature settings (medium, hot, and extra hot). The Vertuo heats in just 15 seconds for a fast cup any time, and shuts down after nine minutes of inactivity to save energy.

The device features Bluetooth connectivity, which you’ll need for its smart features. This includes notifications for cleaning, low water, and re-ordering coffee capsules.

2. Atomi Smart Wi-Fi 12 Cup Coffee Maker

One of the best features of a smart coffee maker is the ability to start a pot from just about anywhere. Atomi’s large, 12-cup coffee maker offers both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa integrations that are easy as can be. If you wake up in bed and you’re out of range of a smart speaker, you can start brewing right from the Atomi app on your phone.

You can also schedule a pot to brew at the same time each day, but that’s become more of a standard than a smart feature. A reusable filter helps cut down on your waste while you caffeinate.

3. Goat Story Gina

Goat Story Gina

Absolutely nothing beats the flavor of a slow-drip brew, which makes the Goat Story Gina great for coffee purists. It integrates modern technology with a beloved process. It won’t necessarily make that process faster or easier, as you still have to do most things manually, but it will take calculations and guesswork out of the equation. The coffee maker connects to an official app, and uses its integrated scale to tell you how much water to add and when. 

4. Hamilton Beach Smart Coffee Maker

The Smart Coffee Maker from Hamilton Beach offers full Alexa integration, meaning you can operate it with the Alexa app, control it with any Alexa smart speaker, and even set up automation routines. Beyond that it comes with a 12-cup mug and supports different brewing strengths. The best part, really, is that it’s pretty affordable compared to most other appliances on this list.

5. Smarter SMC01

Smarter SMC01

Hardcore coffee lovers will agree that the best experience begins with grinding your beans at home, and the SMC01 has a grinder built in. The unit also comes with a 1.5-liter (6-cup) carafe, interchangeable panels (for different colors), and a 3.5-inch LCD. You won’t be needing it too much, though, as a mobile app can do all the work. It additionally supports Google Assistant, Alexa, and other platforms by way of IFTTT.
