To ask for a coffee machine for our bedroom

If not, which one? I love a morning coffee but never have time to go and make one before I tumble out of the house for work. I figure if I have a machine for my bedside table I can brew and drink whilst I get ready. Husband remains cynical but I may be able to convince him for Christmas. Any recommendations?

Hahaha like a Teasmaid! Yes get one, my Nespresso has died so I'm looking for another one too smile

Ha ha exactly like a teasmade, though I realise I may need to punch it on when my alarm goes off.

Well I have my babies prep machine on my bedside table, saves me time in the night and mornings to make his bottles - same kind of thing isn't it?! I would do it?
I take it you drink black coffee otherwise where will the milk go?!

I have a milk plan (an ice cold shelf in en suite), I'm slightly itchy about it but if it's mega-sealed it should be okay.

Maybe you could get a smart coffee machine which you can turn on with your phone and presumably set a time for it to turn on.

I haven't seen them but if there are smart kettles then these must exist!

Coffee mate would mean no need for milk? I've got a tassimo and I love it!

I hate coffee mate or plastic milk, my palette is just to discerning (I've just had bunless hot dogs for tea smile) I do need proper milk in my coffee though. Love the idea of a swanky smartphone machine, hate that you're not sure it's been invented (bet it would cost a fortune anyway)

Firebox sell one you can conyrol with your phone, it is on offer at the moment I think for about £100. I would go with one in the bedroom myself though!

A Tassimo maker would be good for you. You have a disc containing a milky latte, cappuccino or hot choc and put it in the top. You dont need to refridgerate the discs.

I get up with 15 mins to get ready so one in my room would be great. I know I could get up earlier but my circadian rhythm struggles to adjust.

Just get a timer plug for £8ish and set it for when you get up?

TheAntiBoop Sat 19-Nov-16 21:15:45

My dh gets up and makes the coffee while I get ready. Would that be an option!

God this is a good idea. thanks, OP! smile

You can get filter machines with timers. We have one and the timer is set every evening so all we need to do is pour and go in the morning. Best thing we ever bought.

I have have one with a timer. It's timed so when I wake up the coffee has been made. Lives in the kitchen though as it's not exactly quiet and would wake me up

GrabtharsHammer Sat 19-Nov-16 21:19:26

I have my Nespresso coffees black anyway, and I usually have milk with other coffees.

BuonoEstente Sat 19-Nov-16 21:20:16

Alas DH gets up after me so that isn't an option. I have a plug timer but nothing to time as yet. Googling tassimo right now.

BuonoEstente Sat 19-Nov-16 21:21:44

Also looking at filter deelios

Bluntness100 Sat 19-Nov-16 21:22:58

Actually I love this idea too. Small coffee machine on the side, couple of mugs, i drink my coffee black, so no milk issues, defo a great idea. Like a hotel room 😃

choirmumoftwo Sat 19-Nov-16 21:26:16

Milk in a small flask the night before?

PopGoesTheWeaz Sat 19-Nov-16 21:26:31

What about something like this . You can keep it in the kitchen but set the timer the night before. It even has a travel mug if you run out of time!

previously1474907171 Sat 19-Nov-16 21:27:52

Ice blocks in a small lunch bag would keep milk cold.

Sparlklesilverglitter Sat 19-Nov-16 21:28:34

In the bedroom? Why not the kitchen? Just pop and put the coffee on then get dressed

There is no way I would have a coffee machine in the bedroom. A bedroom is for peace, quiet and tranquility not a coffee machines
