Would You Want To Be Served Coffee By A Robot? | Money Mind | CNA Insider

Calling all #coffeelovers, your next cup of coffee could soon be made by a robotic barista.

Crown Coffee has 4 manned cafes in Singapore and CEO Keith Tan, has plans to set up a fully autonomous outlet run by their robotic barista, Ella.

Ella is a 6-axis robot that is a cafe owner’s dream worker. It can brew coffee faster than any human, and can work every day, solving issues with manpower shortage.

Recently, Ella was put to the test at the
Standard Chartered Marathon, where it made 200 cups in an hour! Talk about #coffeerun.
