A great cup of coffee can really change your outlook for the day, and one gadget that brews a damn good cup of Joe is the WeMo Coffeemaker by Mr. Coffee. It brews coffee at optimal temperature, but it also allows you to start the brew process right from your smartphone. So, if you set up the coffeemaker beforehand with grinds and water, you can make your coffee on your way home from work, before you get out of bed in the morning, or when you need that 2PM pick me up and don’t want to get off your couch yet. Not only can you brew your coffee from anywhere, you can also set up a brew schedule a week in advance. And, the carafe keeps your coffee hot for over two hours without burning it (like a standard coffeemaker normally would). Think about all of the times you swung by the Starbucks drive-thru and how much money you spent simply because you didn’t want to wait for your coffee to brew when you get home. Now, you won’t have to, which will likely stop you from stopping by for a $6 coffee at Starbucks. The Mr. Coffee WeMo Coffeemaker is my favorite gadget that I own.

The existing concrete shell was left virtually untouched, creating massive rooms with towering walls. Sheer white curtains filter in natural light, providing a soft contrast to the monolithic palette. While the exterior of the building retains its industrial identity, lush plants, climbing vines, and rooftop gardens temper the facade, turning the rigid fortress into a whimsical abode.
