Today I finally automated my espresso machine. When it's turned on it needs to pre-heat for at least 20 minutes so that the brew head heats up enough, normally I forget about it then but it tells me that the heat is up and I can brew. Then I have ten minutes on me to brew the espresso and it switches the machine off automatically. It also turns the machine on so I can brew an espresso first thing in the morning before the gym. And I can press a button which I have at my desk in the living room to start the process. There are two more ways of doing it which you can't see here. I can do it from any computer or my mobile phone in the Home Assistant UI so it's ready when I arrive at home and I also can just tell google assistant to do it.
