Already present at four outlets around Singapore — CT Hub 2, NUS Innovate 4.0, Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and DHL Innovation Centre — Crown Coffee's Keith Tan told FoodBiz Asia that more robotic baristas will be deployed by next month.

Whether it’s the coffee or the competent barista preparing the delicious brew, the Crown Coffee kiosk at last month’s Speciality & Fine Food Asia, held in Suntec Singapore, drew visitors to watch Ella, the Singapore-made robotic barista, create cup after cup of espresso, cappuccino or latte.

Ella, the 6 Axis robot, is only one of the components of Crown Coffee’s fully automated café solution, where each touchpoint, such as ordering and fulfilment processes, is digitised in true Internet of Things (IoT) fashion, said Keith Tan, founder and CEO, Crown Coffee | Digital Robotics.

Already present at four outlets around Singapore — CT Hub 2, NUS Innovate 4.0, Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and DHL Innovation Centre — Tan told FoodBiz Asia that more robotic baristas will be deployed by next month.
