illy has introduced a connected version of its Y5 single-serve espresso machine, which uses coffee capsules and integrates the Amazon Dash Replenishment System (DRS).
Introduced at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show, the illy Y5 DRS keeps track of coffee capsule usage autonomously, and the DRS allows the machine to automatically order new coffee capsules from Amazon when it detects it is running low.
An app is also available for both Android and iPhone users, which connects to the machine via Bluetooth and allows users to start coffee and espresso brewing, schedule daily brewing times, and customize cup volume and temperature.
The Y5 DRS is available from Amazon for $299, and the machine can brew medium roast, dark roast and decaffeinated varieties of coffee.
Barry Sheldon, resident and COO of illy North America said: “Our new Y5 DRS system and app work seamlessly to empower coffee connoisseurs to enjoy all that illy has to offer, and automatically reorder capsules with Dash Replenishment.
“The potent combination of remote operation, custom-tailored coffee and espresso options, and simple capsule reordering through Dash Replenishment means loving every cup without the worry of ever running out.”
