The reporter visited various venues and found that the most popular among consumers is Hall 8.1 (International Smart Retail and Unmanned Self-service Commercial Products Exhibition). Among them, there is a “COFE+ Robot Coffee Kiosk” that claims to be “dropping” a cup of robot coffee in the world. The hot spots of the pavilion, from freshly ground, extracted, freshly beaten milk froth, dripping syrup to the cup, this robot coffee kiosk COFE+ is fully automated and transparently operated by the robot, bringing a unique and intelligent experience to the public.

According to the staff of the organizer, Bohua, only a few companies in three countries around the world can develop robot coffee kiosks, and this COFE+ smart coffee kiosk is one of the best. COFE+ coffee robot is a dazzling star at the 2019 International Import Expo, and it is also a high-tech enterprise specially invited to show artificial intelligence into the lives of the people to more than 2,000 delegates and government leaders during the 2020 Shanghai National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.


The reporter interviewed several practitioners in the tourism industry at the scene: 'It would be great if there was such a robot coffee kiosk in our tourist attraction. It is not only affordable, but also open 24 hours, and it is not afraid of wind or rain. It is also convenient to move and cost. Basically zero.'

'Our amusement park has been closed during the epidemic and has only recently opened for business. However, consumers are still not very relieved about the food and beverages in the park. However, there is such a smart coffee kiosk that uses robots to make coffee throughout the process. I believe it can give everyone more peace of mind. Experience.' said an amusement park operator.

Seeing the long queue at the scene, the reporter couldn't help but buy a cup and taste it. The taste was great, not inferior to the famous brand. Asked about the production time and the number of cups that can be made, the person in charge on the site replied, 'On average, 1 cup can be freshly ground in 30 seconds to 1 minute. One refill can support continuous production of 300 cups of coffee to meet daily needs.' It’s amazing!

There are two kinds of choices, hot drinks and iced drinks in two cups, more ice and less ice, less sugar and polysaccharide, and powder and syrup added. The lowest price for a cup of freshly ground organic coffee is only 9.9 yuan/cup, which is only 1/3 of the price of Starbucks, allowing consumers to feast their mouths and truly enjoy the great joy of technological advancement.
