Exclusive: Robojo Bringing a Robot Barista That Will Print Your Face on Your Latte's Foam
First U.S. installation of the machine happening next month.
The new year will bring a new robot barista to the U.S., courtesy of Robojo. The company is the exclusive distributor of Germany’s MyAppCafe automated coffee kiosk, and plans to install its first machine stateside on January 16th.
The MyAppCafe machine is an 11 ft. wide by 7 ft. deep standalone kiosk capable of 250 different drink/tea combinations (including iced drinks), can make four drinks simultaneiously, and can pump out 100 drinks per hour.
Robojo is bringing the MyAppCafe to market through straight purchase/leasing deals with big institutions like universities or military bases, and is not looking to franchise out its own brand at this time. Robojo declined to say who it’s first installation is with, and did not disclose pricing.
While there are a lot of robotic baristas coming to market, Robojo is looking to set itself apart from the competition with one key feature — customized, on-demand foam printing.
Why This Matters
While there are other robot baristas like Know’s InBot that promise to pretty up your drink with latte art, Robojo is taking this whole concept to a new level by allowing you to customize your latte with your face.
