If you fancy rolling out of bed bleary-eyed to have a perfectly brewed Italian coffee waiting for you, then it might be time to upgrade your coffee machine.
In partnership with Amazon, Lavazza has released the first ever coffee machine with built-in Alexa, so you can prepare your cappuccino, latte, macchiato or espresso without lifting a finger.
With one simple command – ‘Alexa, make me a coffee’ – the Lavazza A Modo Mio Voicy will get to work brewing you a customised drink at your preferred temperature.

So whether you’re at your home work desk, getting the kids ready for school, or lying in bed after hitting snooze for the third time, you can request your coffee from afar and let the machine do its job.
If you want to go one step further, you can download the Piacere Lavazza app, which allows you to connect the Voicy coffee machine to your smart devices to control them directly with voice commands.
This means that as well as ordering coffee, the Lavazza A Modo Mio Voicy can make and receive calls, send messages to and from Echo devices, and play music from Amazon Music, Spotify and Deezer.
The coffee machine and app combo may be a dream for gadget fans, but you don’t have to be terribly tech savvy to use it. You can save personalised espresso preferences within the app so they can be recreated on command without faffing around with buttons.

You can even give your favourite coffee a name and link it to your voice for an extra-personalised experience.
The Lavazza A Modo Mio Voicy works with both the Alexa and Piacere Lavazza apps to monitor capsule stock and place new orders so you never run out, and it will also record daily coffee consumption.
It’s currently on available to buy at both Lavazza.co.uk and Amazon for £249, or you can purchase the machine as part of Lavaza’s A Modo Mio coffee subscription service for just £50, alongside a capsule subscription.
