Serve coffee with speed and convenience? Done this too. How much sugar?
Come on robots who deliver pizzas to those who throw hamburgers, passing through the droids who deliver meals to the diners' tables. Robots are making several changes in the restaurant industry, and the world of coffee shops may also be affected: here is Cafe X.
If you happen to be at San Francisco International Airport for work or play, you can sip a cup of great (?) Coffee prepared by a robot.
Cafe X recently opened a new bar with robot bartender at this transportation hub. The machine uses its robotic arm to brew and serve coffee, tea and a variety of other beverages and can handle up to ten orders at a time. The goal is to provide customers with a fast and efficient service.
I had the idea of a robot making coffee after waiting over 30 minutes in an airport a few years agoHenry Hu, founder and CEO of Cafe X.
Select your variety
Getting your hot drink couldn't be easier. Simply use the keyboards to choose and pay for your drink, and in seconds you will be served your freshly brewed drink.
Drinks on offer include cappuccino, hot chocolate, iced caramel macchiato and iced matcha milk.
Cafe X already has three other robotic bar locations in San Francisco and plans to open more at different airports and cities in the U.S. and Europe in the near future.

Eye, this is not a vending machine. The robot makes drinks exactly like a bartender would, with bar machines. Otherwise it was easy.
