Coffee + Convenience

After years of slumping—or is it repressed?—innovation, 2015 is shaping up to be rather exciting for major kitchen appliances. Today brings the announcement of a refrigerator that incorporates a single-serve coffee machine. Snap the Keurig brewing module onto the filtered-water dispenser of the GE Café fridge, and piping-hot java is just a push-button away. If that's not easy enough, an app lets you schedule the specific time you'd like to have your caffeine fix. This appliance will be on the market in the third quarter of the year.
