Hate waiting in line every morning for coffee? Robots may be the answer.

Yummy Future builds high-performance, affordable robotic coffee shops. These machines help coffee-shop owners handle peak customer demand and reduce labor costs, all while serving more coffee with reduced errors.

Yummy Future’s creation isn’t just a coffee machine. It does more than simply brew coffee grounds. It completes the tedious, repetitive work associated with putting together drinks.

The machine can produce a cup of coffee in as little as 30 seconds. And its task scheduling optimizer, powered by edge computing, ensures that it can process multiple orders in succession and deliver drinks as efficiently as possible.

Yummy Future has partnered with the University of Illinois to test and refine its robotic coffee-shop experience. The company has received 25 pre-orders from businesses, which it aims to fulfill in mid-2022.

From there, the company will target universities, airports, convention centers, and independent coffee shops.
