The second Cafe-X with a robot barista is opened in the U. S.
The second automated Cafe-X has been opened on 578 Market Street, San Francisco. Its peculiarity is a robot barista instead of a human.
The café consists of 3 stations:
- free sugar/cinnamon/chocolate;
- coffee serving out.
The robot barista is based on an industrial manipulator Mitsubishi with two coffee machines. It can change cups between them and put a prepared drink in the pointed place.
What makes such coffee a win-win solution is the absence of queues. The organization of the working process is maximum effective: to get a drink, you make an order, enter your mobile number and receive a message with a code.
The only human worker at this café greets guests at the entrance and answers questions. On the whole, about 200-300 clients visit Cafe-X per day.
