Cafe X Multiroaster ‘Robotic Cafe’ Opens in San Francisco
Cafe X Technologies is launching its first United States cafe location in downtown San Francisco (the other is in Hong Kong), which is a small glass-enclosed kiosk where a robotic arm prepares cups of coffee. Cafe X combines automated brewing technology, robotics, a tech-based ordering system and participation from multiple roasting companies.
Customers can order the drinks directly at the kiosk or in advance through the Cafe X iOS or Android App. When a drink is ready, customers then enter a four-digit order code at one of the kiosk’s tablets to be served by the robotic barista arm. Prices start at $2.25 for an 8-ounce cup, varying based on coffee selection. Options include Americanos, cortados, cappuccinos, lattes, espresso, and flat whites.
Cuisine: Coffee & Tea
Price Range: $2.00 - $3.00
