When the world is dark and cold and all the news is bad, what do you say? "Alexa, make me some COFFEE!" And that's just what this WiFi connected coffee maker from Hamilton Beach will do when you tell Alexa to make you some coffee. Up to 12 cups of the dark, jittery brew in fact. You can even set brew strength to regular or BOLD. Go bold people, go bold!

What could happen if something goes wrong?

Bad news coffee drinkers. This smart coffee maker gets dinged for not clarifying in their privacy policy if users can delete their data. We had a hard time even finding a privacy policy for them at all. And this device doesn't meet our Minimum Security Standards so assume that cup of joe comes with *Privacy Not Included.
