BROOKLYN, N.Y., U.S. — Gourmia, a designer and manufacturer of innovative countertop kitchen appliances, announced today it will debut new IoT coffee makers at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago (March 10 – 13).
All are compatible with both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, with Windows 10 Cortana compatibility to follow shortly.
Each may be controlled by a single app, the Gourmia mobile app, which is available for both Android and iOS and also manages other countertop appliances. Each model features artificial intelligence (AI) that allows it to learn user preferences and to make coffee that will satisfy even the most discerning drinker’s taste.
“These Gourmia coffee makers meld the best practices in kitchen gadgetry with fully integrated IoT technologies,” stated Heshy Biegeleisen, Gourmia founder. “They offer coffee lovers the most connected appliances, yet still boast simple, friendly usability. And with the convenience offered by our special smartphone app, coffee aficionados are afforded complete control from virtually anywhere. These units truly epitomize our goal to provide smart appliances for smarter living.”
The new Gourmia IoT coffee maker line not only enables consumers to make barista quality coffee exactly the way they want it, but also learns their coffee preferences with its artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities. The 6:00am “make me my usual” may generate a dark roast cup with caffeine vs. the 3:00pm “usual” that may generate a light cup of decafe.
New models announced at Housewares include:
- GCMW3375 Pour-Over Coffee Maker
The Gourmia GCMW3375 is the world’s first automatic pour-over coffee maker to feature both Google Home (Google Assistant) and Amazon Alexa compatibility. In addition to its IoT and AI capabilities, on its own the device is extraordinarily complex. Gourmia has created a unique planetary pouring pattern, perfected the blooming process, and mastered the temperature control. Every action is completed at a very specific time, rate, and temperature to ensure a perfect, even brew. Designed to address the growing pour-over and specialty coffee markets, it has precise temperature control (heating water to SCAA standards) and a built-in scale that adjusts the amount of water used depending on the number of grinds to guarantee the perfect water-to-coffee ratio for every cup. It also comes with a 24-hour preset program with LCD, descale reminder, weight and temperature sensors, and a glass carafe. The Gourmia GCMW3375 is on trend with what coffee drinkers want today – the freedom to create a single cup of coffee exactly the way they want it and with quick, easy clean-up.
The Gourmia GCMW3375 is a finalist in the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards.
