The most common programmable feature on a coffee maker is the ability to brew on a timer, which allows users to roll out of bed to the aroma of freshly prepared coffee. This feature is a deal-breaker for some coffee enthusiasts who don't like to wait on their coffee machine. Other programmable features that some machines have are coffee strength, temperature, or settings for keeping the coffee warm on a built-in heating pad.
