Robo Barista: Morning Coffee Made by AI
Have you ever wondered, if your morning-coffee-habit was not served by a “Jolly Barista?”
Every day businesses strive to be unique and different from competitors in order to broaden their goals, ultimately increasing their sales. Digitalization with no human interference is one of the aspects that people are focusing on these days. This innovative concept has touched industries in many ways; one of them is the first-ever robot barista in Indonesia that serves coffee, Familymart Robo Barista.
The self-service concept brought by Familymart gives an extraordinary experience for consumers, where the human touch is replaced with cutting-edge technology. Aside from experience, the presence of the robot barista booth could serve dozens of coffee-based orders in just one to two minutes, with no buyer contact.
Then, what is the impact on the consumers’ side of this breakthrough?
With this robot barista, Family Mart has succeeded in making people curious and impressed by posting through social media. Moreover, the 2 minutes coffee will obviously attract consumers who seek efficiency, such a perfect choice when you want coffee, but you don’t have much time.
This Robo Barista phenomenon indirectly told consumers to be ready for Artificial Intelligence’s intervention on businesses in the future. Pro and contras indeed will occur, but innovation won’t just stop.
So, what do you think of Family Mart’s Robo Barista? Will it become the benchmark for the other coffee shops in Indonesia?
