Reversing the Smarter Coffee IoT Machine Protocol to Make Coffee Using the Terminal.

I love coffee, that’s a fact, and I drink liters of it during the week … I also am a nerd and a hacker, so a few days ago I bought a Smarter Coffee machine on Amazon, basically a coffee machine that you can control over your home wifi network using a mobile application ( both for Android and iOS ).
The app is really nice: you can set the amount of cups you want, the strength of the coffee, etc, then you only need to press a button and wait for your delicious coffee to be brewed.

Since I work from home, most of the times I’m using the computer keyboard, not a smartphone, therefore I wanted/needed a console client for it, something that the vendor never released, so I started reversing the Android application in order to understand the communication protocol and write my own client implementation … guess what? :D

Yep, i can make coffee using the terminal now :D
