Amazon and Lavazza launches first ever coffee machine with built-in Alexa
Coffee lovers are in for a real treat as online retailer Amazon has teamed up with coffee products manufacturer Lavazza to launch Voicy.
The Lavazza A Modo Mio Voicy is the first coffee machine that has Alexa built in, so you can happily say goodbye to having to rustle up your own brew again.
The smart coffee machine is priced at £249 and is available to buy at Amazon and Lavazza.co.uk.
All you need to do, is say: "Alexa, make me a coffee" and there you have it, the perfect coffee, which includes espresso and custom made drinks.
And if making your coffee wasn't enough, it will also monitor capsule stock, place new orders and play music.
Best of all, it can make and receive calls, send messages to and from Echo devices, play music from Amazon Music, Spotify and Deezer (with Multi Room Music support).
It can also control compatible Smart Home devices, such as other Echo devices, and if you register your Lavazza A Modo Mio Voicy, you can subscribe to the Amazon Music Unlimited service and enjoy a three-month free trial period… Wow.
Eric King, Alexa Director EU, said: “We are extremely proud of this partnership with Lavazza, we are convinced that Voicy is the right product to delight our customers with a fantastic experience – top quality Lavazza coffee plus the thousands of functions provided by Alexa, all in the same beautifully designed and technologically innovative device."
Pietro Mazzà, General Manager UK and Regional Director UK & Nordics at Lavazza Group, added: “The launch of the new A Modo Mio Voicy with Alexa technology reaffirms Lavazza’s commitment to developing hi-tech solutions to position the brand at the centre of innovative and high-quality coffee experiences which can be enjoyed at home. The result of a strategic partnership with Amazon, this launch will enable our customers to enjoy tailored coffee experiences with endless possibilities using just their voice and the app."
The coffee machine works with both the Alexa and Piacere Lavazza apps to monitor capsule stock, place new orders, record daily coffee consumption and can even offer top tips on how to use the coffee maker and descale it.
Better still, if you want to really impress family and friends, you can create personalised espresso preferences which can be saved in the Piacere Lavazza App, so that you can then create everyone's favourite drinks on command, without lifting a finger – it's literally the gift that keeps on giving.
Customers can also download the app via the Apple Store or Google Play.
The Voicy is also available to purchase as part of Lavazza’s convenient A Modo Mio coffee subscription service via their website Lavazza.co.uk, where customers will be able to purchase the machine for just £50, alongside a capsule subscription.
