Melitta ME1MSB SmartBrew Coffee Maker with Weather Display
No, this isn’t an Espresso Machine, but it is what I want in my Espresso Machine. I saw this, and thought I would pass it along, it is a Melitta ME1MSB Smart Brew Coffeemaker With MSN Direct built right in. So, the thing can tell you what the weather forecast is as you pour your cup of coffee.
It’s a 10-cup programmable grind and brew coffee maker that has an animated LCD display that shows you up to the minute regional specific weather that it gets via a free (NO Subscription required!) FM radio signal. It requires no set-up or internet connection – just plug in and go. The appliance displays the current temperature and conditions, high and low temperatures, and chance of precipitation, as well as four-day weather forecasts.
The coffeemaker also displays scrolling weather information; visibility; sunrise/sunset time; the UV index; and national weather-service warnings and alerts (the display flashes when a warning alert is issued).
Available now for Pre-order at Amazon; Ships in Mid-November.
Features after the Jump.
