Reviews by customers on ‘Hamilton beach brewmaster

smart coffee maker with Alexa’:


  • Not only does it make awesome coffee it’s also smart! Best invention since hand warmers haha. Anyways, brewed a pot of coffee immediately after receiving and I do gotta say is one of the best homemade coffees I’ve had. Pairs seamlessly with Alexa. Like how awesome is it to be just waking up, and saying “Alexa make me some coffee’! Today’s the first day so I can’t wait to be able to do that in the morning lol. I would give this 10 stars if I could. It’s just a great little machine. If you are on the fence. Seriously just jump over.


  • I could not wait for this coffee maker to arrive! I love that I can set a routine in Alexa and set it to brew when we tell her Good morning! Wifi set up was super easy, so we never have to worry about resetting the clock if the power goes out because it does it for you! What I love most about this coffee maker though is that I no longer have to drag it out from under the cabinet as it is ALL front loading. The carafe is one of the few that doesn’t leak all over when filling the water reservoir or pouring coffee. There is also a brew strength selector so that you can make that first pot of the day extra stout!


  • I wake up, I made this work with my morning routine. So I say Alexa good morning, I do what I normally do and by the time I’m ready to pour my cup of coffee, it’s already made. When my husband wakes up before I do, he tells me to make coffee, I say Alexa start the coffee maker and he does his morning routine and loves there is a bold function to make the coffee flavor a little stronger. Plus, when I make coffee for him I get to go back to sleep. It will keep the coffee hot for up to 2 hours which is also a plus because my husband and I never get up at the same time. Whenever we turn it off, I set it up for the next day and walk away so it’s always ready to make a pot of coffee.


Ø So they beat me to it. I’ve been thinking how nice a Bluetooth enabled coffee maker would be on weekend mornings when I don’t have a set schedule to get up but want that coffee ready by the time I get myself out of bed. Well, Alexa to the rescue. I’m not a huge fan of the whole smart home fad but I have to say this is super convenient. Aside from the convenience factor, this thing brews a flavorful cup of coffee. I had a Ninja coffee system that died after a year (right after warranty expiration-stay away) and this coffee maker is just as good if not better. The iPhone Alexa app is all I needed to be able to get Alexa started on my brew. I love it.


  • The review of the coffee maker posted by A. Mitchell is so thorough, I would recommend you do your due diligence and read it. She is right on the spot. I LOVE my coffee maker! I can’t say enough about the convenience of rolling over in bed and saying, “Alexa, turn on the coffee maker.” It sounds lazy I know, but being a Mom of two marathon kids (2 and 5), this is a lifesaver, seriously. All I do the night before is add the coffee grounds, the water, and hit the little button that illuminates green, and it’s done! 😍YaY😀


  • Great coffee maker for the price, plus a bonus that it works w Alexa as well.
  • Pros: Alexa set up was very easy as I just had to scan the QR code and a few clicks and Alexa is set up. I also like the option of being able to make the coffee bold or regular. I also bought the Hamilton beach water filter and my first pot tasted great. Lastly, the coffee will stop dripping if you want to grab the pot and pour a cup before the cycle is over.
  • Con: the pot design is a bit flawed as it is impossible to drain it after washing it. It has a plastic lip that does not allow for totally draining the water to allow the pot to dry.

Quick buyer’s guide


  • Suitability: Do you want your coffee to be waiting for you already, or are you looking forward to brewing coffee by yourself? A programmable electric coffee machine can do your work if you want a nearly hands-off coffee-making experience. It is more convenient if your coffee maker can take voice commands allowing you to save time.
  • Type of coffee: Whether you like the freshly ground coffee or like the flavored pots available in the market. You must choose whether your coffee maker can change the brew strength to strong or normal.


  • Brew size: Different coffee makers allow different amounts of coffee to be made. Some offer a large range while others are restricted by narrow limits. But it should be notified that you can pour into cups when the coffee maker has a large range. But in the short term, you have to make twice if the amount does not satisfy your need.


  • Sizing: The size of the machine does not affect the amount of coffee you make as it only depends on the jug being used. But what matters is the space it takes. If it does not fit in the designated place you plan for then you may have to change the position time-to-time which is another problem.
  • Custom Brewing Options: The most basic machines have virtually no options aside from adding more or fewer coffee grounds or water, while more complicated machines let you choose, brew strength, and a wide variety of brew sizes. Cup and capsule machines offer options for making hot chocolate, tea, and more. In general, some allow you to be more advanced and run the machines simply yet technologically advanced and others may have too many manual options which may disappoint you when you think about the long process to make a cup of coffee.


  • Extra Features: Other than the brewing options, some coffee makers have other extra features like ‘Alexa’ (which only this coffee maker has), keep warm, auto shut-off, mess-free (avoid spills outside the coffee jug/mug). Some contain audible alerts and lights to notify the progress of brewing or other stages of making the coffee.
