Amazon's Alexa will work with Gourmia's new coffemaker, tea brewer and sous vide circulator

Six new small appliances from Gourmia will be Wi-Fi-enabled and work with the company's new app. The coffeemaker, tea brewer and sous vide immersion circulator will work with Amazon's Alexa.

You can lounge in your bed and tell Amazon's Alexa to start your coffee, tea or sous vide circulator thanks to a new Skill from small appliance manufacturer Gourmia.

Gourmia displayed a new line of six Wi-Fi-enabled appliances at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The company hasn't released prices for these countertop gadgets, and they anticipate a release in the second quarter of 2017. You'll be able to control all the of appliances through Gourmia's new app, but three of those appliances will work with Alexa, Amazon's voice-activated digital assistant:

  • A 10-cup automatic drip coffee maker with a built-in grinder
  • A loose-leaf tea infuser
  • A sous vide pod (it's a device that will create a temperature-controlled water bath)

The controls will work thanks to a Skill (aka the capabilities that you enable Alexa to perform) called Mia. So if you want some tea in the morning, you'll be able to say, "Alexa, tell Mia to start my tea."

Integration with Alexa has been big at this year's CES. And we've already seen small appliances like the Joule sous vide circulator work with Alexa.
