Hanging out at your favorite cafe has more or less been out of the question this past year. What was once routine for the average citygoer or office worker now seems more like a distant memory. These days, work-from-home employees and busy homemakers have turned to other ways to get their caffeine fix aside from the usual instant coffee. Beverages like dalgona coffee and cold brew have been just some of the ways people have been able to make their homemade coffee a little more exciting. Another option would be to invest in a new coffee machine to make brewing at home easier and prevent weekly purchases of pricey pre-made coffee bottles. Here’s a pretty cool one that’s also budget-friendly: Xiaomi‘s Mi Smart Coffee Machine, which you can get for just P6,990!
This coffee machine uses capsules or pods to make drinks, which means you need not be a die-hard coffee connoisseur to make a quality cup of joe. The device supports several brands of capsules and pods available on the market, so you can choose from a variety of flavors and blends that would best suit your preferences and fit your budget.
The machine’s user-friendly control system has a knob for adjusting settings, an LED light indicator to let you know it’s running, and an adjustable cup holder so you can fit mugs of all sizes under the spout. It also doubles as a hot water dispenser, so you won’t have to buy a kettle or go through the trouble of boiling water on the stove should you ever need any. And here’s the coolest part: You can control the device from your phone using Xiaomi’s Mi Home App (available on the App Store and Google Play Store). It allows you to adjust the concentration of the coffee and the temperature of the water right from your phone so you get your perfect brew every time with no fuss.
And did we mention the appliance’s sleek, black-and-white design would look so chic on your countertop? Check it out:
