Travelers and employees at San Francisco International Airport, California, can now have their coffees prepared and served by a robotic barista. Austin-based Briggo Coffee has installed the airport’s first gourmet, fully automated Coffee Haus adjacent to the security entrance inside Terminal 3.
“Speed, quality and consistency are at an absolute premium when it comes to airport amenities, which makes Briggo the perfect coffee experience for one of the top-rated airports in the world,” said Kevin Nater, Briggo CEO. “We’re honored to bring connected coffee to such a vibrant, tech-savvy city as we quickly expand our presence throughout the Bay Area and beyond.”
While ordering ahead from the Briggo mobile app or on the Coffee Haus touchscreens, customers can completely customize their flavored latte, cappuccino, or several other gourmet coffee and tea drinks. Using the precision and efficiency of Briggo’s robotic technology, drinks are crafted within minutes from custom whole-bean blends, fresh dairy and gourmet syrups at a rate of up to 100 cups per hour.
Briggo’s Coffee Haus will feature its own blend of high-altitude arabica beans and will rotate specialty blends from local Bay Area roasters Verve and Sightglass.
Briggo currently operates another two automated coffee stands in Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, Texas.
