A life saving feature for the fussy drinkers among us, the Coffee Link app connects to the machine, letting them change up recipes to how they like them, and save all their favourites. This way, they won’t have to mess around creating their awkward order each time.
After a heavy New Year’s Eve, they’ll need their drink at its freshest to give them that kick out of bed. After each use, the system is designed to leave very few beans in the grinder, so each espresso will be brewed from newly ground coffee.
