Robotic Café Delivers
Cafe X Technologies’s first robotic café in the United States is designed to eliminate the variables and consistently serve its customers in seconds.
The self-serve station is installed in San Francisco’s Metreon shopping mall.
Cafe X partnered with automated coffee machine maker WMF to deliver a quality espresso-based drink, the company said. Customers place orders at the kiosk or via a Cafe X app. Once the beverage is ready, customers use a touch screen at the robotic café and enter a 4-digit order number. The robotic arm, made by Mitsubishi, finds the waiting drink and delivers it.
“This won’t replace baristas or the coffee shop experience that so many people have come to love - we don’t aim to do that,“ says c.e.o. Henry Hu. “What we’re offering is the best possible experience for people who are looking for consistent specialty coffee to go.”
