Last month saw the launch of Nespresso latest coffee machine.
The Prodigio, which uses Bluetooth, and Nespresso app to make coffee.
The launch was educational, and the usual fabulous party followed with carefully crafted coffee canapes and equally delectable coffee cocktails by Mixologist Cocktail Guy from the famous Duck & Waffle restaurant and bar in London. They had a lovely display of all the machine released since Nespresso inception.

In an era that is predominantly defined by technology, a lot of things can now be done remotely. Making coffee, for instance, can now be possible with just a few clicks from your smartphone. This is how far technological innovations have taken us, and this is how Nespresso Prodigio is promising to change your life.
Nespresso Prodigio is an espresso maker that can be connected to your smartphone through a modern application. This will allow you to make your coffee remotely, be notified when your coffee capsules are running low and receive alerts when the water needs to be refilled. Even while you are still lounging in bed or just sitting on your couch, Nespresso Prodigio will make it effortless to prepare your caffeine fix.
The Nespresso Prodigio is equipped with state-of-the-art Bluetooth Technology. This will connect the machine to your smartphone. With a few swipes of buttons from the app, you can already brew your espresso. It is going to perform various functions, such as ordering of capsules, automatic brewing based on specified time, providing warnings when capsule container is full, alerting when tanks need to be emptied, and alerts for maintenance and errors.
The Nespresso Prodigio machine is available now, and it is priced at £159. The Prodigio&Milk is priced at £199. The machine can be purchased from Nespresso Boutiques, Nespresso.com and leading department stores and cookshops.
Nespresso Prodigio review
|My phone made me a coffee!|
Connecting the phone to the machine - it was a bit tricky, it didn't connect immediately. It took a couple of times. The machine had to be reset, which I found instructions online, and then the IPhone Bluetooth paired with the machine. After that it was very easy to use the applicance.

scheduling the Prodigio
If there's more than one person using the application over different devices for the same Prodigio, it's difficult to find out if you are running out of coffee capsules, if for example one leaves the house for a few days and the other person still using the machine. The application doesn't get updated correctly. In this scenario, better to have an appropriate amount of capsules as back up in the house. The application still in development, so hopefully this issue will get ironed out. I heard other features will be added.
Still it is a great appliance to make fantastic Nespresso coffees without leaving the sofa or bed and to easy schedule to make coffee first thing in the morning. It's beautifully designed, smooth lines and comes in Silver and Titan.
