„Alexa, start Qbo!“

Take coffee enjoyment literally – and order your favorite coffees now with your voice! Whether you want them prepared immediately or just as your alarm goes off next morning: Simply say which coffee you'd like and your Qbo Machine will get to work.
What do you need to do this? An Amazon Echo device and the new Qbo Skill for Amazon Alexa. And then you can start the preparation by a voice command – even if you've got your hands full at the time.

Start and time preparation

You can start the Qbo Skill, for example, with the words "Alexa, start Qbo" or "Alexa, tell Qbo …". If you would like your favorite coffee served immediately, you can simply make the statement "I'd like a coffee". Alternatively, you can time the preparation in advance: Just say "Please make me a coffee in 10 minutes" or "I need a coffee tomorrow at 7 in the morning". And don't forget: Prepare the machine beforehand by inserting the right capsule and a cup.

By the way: If you want, Qbo can also provide you with coffee knowledge. Try it out with "Tell me something about coffee". Or try to find out which coffee is your Qbo Machine's favorite.

Choice of drinks

Is it going to be a ristretto or a cappuccino with extra milk froth? No matter which coffee you fancy at the moment: Just say the word and your Qbo Machine will get going. You can prepare all the standard drinks by voice control, plus ten coffee specialties created personally by you. Create and save your individual drinks in the Qbo App  – and order them with the following names. Qbo will provide you with a list of all available drinks in answer to the question "Which drinks can you prepare?"

Standard drinks:
Ristretto, Espresso, Caffè, Caffè Grande, Espresso Macchiato, Cappuccino, Caffè Latte, Cafè au Lait, Latte Macchiato, Iced Cappuccino, Iced Caffè Latte, Iced Latte Macchiato, Cold milk froth, Warm milk froth

When you say "Go", it gets going

You probably have the most important thing for ordering your coffee by voice in the future: the Qbo Machine. To use the voice control, your machine must have the latest Firmware version, 1.40, and be linked to the Cloud. In addition, you'll need the latest Qbo App – plus an Amazon Echo device, of course.
