In Shanghai's Zhongshan Park underground station, in front of Longemont Shopping Centre, there is a COFE+ robot coffee kiosk, which not only provides two types of coffee beans, arabica and imported organic, two cup sizes for hot and iced drinks, two types of temperatures for hot/iced drinks, but also personalised services such as sugar-free and less sugar, adding powder and granules, etc. On a cold winter day, you can drink a cup of hot coffee made by the robot in less than a minute, which attracts many consumers to stop and watch and buy.

The robot coffee kiosk can operate 24 hours a day, without staff on duty, covering an area of less than 2.35 square metres, and can provide more than 50 kinds of coffee and non-coffee drinks, including the common Americano, latte and mocha coffee, as well as dry cappuccino and wet cappuccino, coffee, milk and milk froth in authoritative ratios, and non-coffee drinks such as matcha latte and hot chocolate. On average, 1 cup can be made in just 1 minute. The coffee beans and fresh milk are carefully selected to taste as good as several major coffee shops on the market, and have a number of services such as personalisation, allowing for preserved pure milk, instant ice making, creative toppings, mixing and shaking, and layering of drinks to be made.


From the 24-hour fully enclosed non-contact 0 contagious service to the ultra-affordable price of as low as RMB 9.9, the robot's production not only makes the taste more stable and constant, but also its smaller footprint makes it more convenient and accessible to the consumer.

In today's increasingly high labour costs and the importance of standardisation, the COFE+ robot coffee kiosk starts with intelligent technology, which not only breaks through the traditional business model of a physical shop, but also upgrades the traditional vending machine's 'stale goods display' model, grinding and making personalised products, pointing out a new technological path for the future development of the real economy.

The current era is one in which new species are constantly on the rise, with unmanned retail and shared lifestyles popping up all over the place, artificial intelligence constantly giving the public new imagination, and industrial robots, the core area of artificial intelligence, are also starting to come into the public eye and play an increasingly service role.


The future is unpredictable, but the future is what we make of it. 2003 saw the advent of the internet era with SARS, which led to the rapid rise of e-commerce and social networking, and this new pneumonia epidemic will accelerate the advent of the AI era, opening up new space for the robotics industry to develop. Seizing the opportunities of the times and moving forward with them, new species like the COFE+ robot coffee kiosk will have very good prospects for development.
