A new European Union rule means all new coffee machines will have to switch off automatically after brewing the drink leaving what is not drunk immediately both tepid and undrinkable.
UKIP Deputy Leader Paul Nuttall said the latest move by the EU, which claims the move will help save energy, falls into the same category as the fussy meddling over light bulbs and vacuum cleaners.
"Now the EU decides we must have tepid coffee after hoovering for an additional 30 minutes in a dimly-lit house with low watt light bulbs," he said.
"It's time for the British people to wake up, smell the coffee and tell the hyper-regulating EU bureaucrats where to go.
"As they won't voluntarily stop interfering in our everyday life, the only way to stop EU meddlers is to vote for a party which campaigns for an EU exit."
