Nespresso are now venturing into the world of connected devices with the new Nespresso Prodigio coffee machine. This is a smart coffee machine that lets you use an app on your phone to determine when you’d like a coffee! If you’re looking for the smartest coffee machine on the market, this is the one you want at entry level without a doubt.
The Nespresso Prodigio is a Bluetooth coffee machine that uses the same capsule technology brew you an espresso, but is connected to the internet, so you can brew yourself a cup of coffee without even having to get out of bed. If you have a smartphone and this connected coffee machine, you have wireless control over your Nespresso.
The Prodigio makes it possible for you to brew yourself a cup, schedule a brew for later in the day (or to coincide with your morning alarm), and even check on whether or not your machine needs maintenance or a cleaning. It gives you almost complete control over your smart coffee machine, without having to be anywhere near that coffee machine (except to actually grab your espresso).
How effortless this Nespresso machine is depends on your circumstances, but this is a very welcome and useful function. Take, for example, the following situation: you know that you are going to want an espresso when you get out of the shower, but you do not want to go downstairs to set your machine. With the Nespresso Prodigio, all you have to do is grab your smartphone off of your nightstand and schedule yourself a brew.
You will get the same high quality espresso you have come to expect from the Nespresso line, without any hassle. Most other machines with the same features are significantly more expensive. This machine is designed to be an affordable version for a great smart coffee machine. The connectivity features will also help you keep your machine in better condition and help ensure that you never run out of capsules.
There are essentially two different versions of this connect coffee machine, the Prodigio and the Prodigio & Milk, which allows you to make a wider variety of drinks, including macchiatos and cappuccinos. The Prodigio & Milk comes with an Aeroccino unit which allows you to make milk-based coffees. The Aeroccino unit is also available as a standalone extra for other Nespresso machines, called the Aeroccino Plus – and is designed to be used with a number of the machines available in the range. However, in more recent times because of popularity, the Prodigio & Milk has become the standard, so you will tend to see the combination available for purchase rather than just the Prodigio unit itself.
We highly recommend using the Nespresso Prodigio as a brilliant connected coffee machine if you would find scheduling your brew to be particularly useful!
