Meet The “Bionic Barrista” [VIDEO]
Are you tired of having to wait on your barista to get your favorite coffee for you? Well, you may not have to worry with her anymore. Cafe X has opened the first fully robotic cafe in San Francisco. Promising “precision crafted specialty coffee in seconds, the way the roaster intended,” Cafe X thinks that this machine could become a common site.
Cafe X explains on its websites. “Smart robotics and machine learning working autonomously allows our operations team to focus on sourcing and using fresh ingredients, maintaining extremely high hygiene standards, and ensuring a great customer experience with every single interaction.” According to Cafe X, a great customer experience involves efficiency and replicability. “By being automated, we guarantee every cup of coffee you are served from a Cafe X machine is how the roaster intended you to enjoy their coffee,” Cafe X CEO Henry Hu told CNET.
You can even order your cup of coffee ahead of time with the Cafe X mobile app and schedule a pickup time. The robotic barista is fast as well. The single armed robot is capable of making 100 to 120 cups of coffee in an hour. Watch the three videos below for more information on the robotic barista:
