Automatic Coffee

I woke up this morning at around 8:30am, walked into the kitchen and poured myself a cup of coffee. Did you catch that? I didn’t brew myself a cup, I just poured it. That’s because my coffee brewed automatically about 10 minutes before I walked into the kitchen.

What a time to be alive.

As a born engineer, I naturally want to automate everything in my life. Sometimes I spend hours working on an automation project which will later only save me seconds of time. Worth it.

I used an app paired with Belkin’s Wemo remote controlled outlets. First, I opened up the app and set the timer to turn out this outlet for around 10 minutes before the time my alarm goes off.

After that was done, all I had to do was plug the coffee maker into the outlet and head to bed!
