If your coffee maker is talking to you in the morning, it means one of two things: one, it’s long past time to switch to decaf, or two, you have a Hammacher Schlemmer voice interactive coffee maker.
This coffee maker will actually ASK you questions. Questions like “Would you like to set the clock or set the coffee brewing time?”, and you’ll respond in kind, with simple commands like “Set the coffee brewing time.” If you want the coffee maker to start talking, just press the “talk” button and the little coffee chatterbox will start up.
Meanwhile, on the coffee maker side of the equation, it includes a reusable, dishwasher-safe plastic filter and brews up to ten cups in a detachable carafe that you can leave on the maker to stay warm.
Just in case your early morning instructions to the coffee maker sound less like commands and more like popular Klingon love ballads, you can also operate the device manually.
