Anyone in the Austin area tried this yet?

The computer geek in me says "of course it's possible to automate espresso."  But the coffee geek in me says "f- that".

There may be a draw for the Starbucks crowd and I agree with you that for us, not so much.

Full disclosure...I work for Briggo...I hope it's OK that I post a quick reply.  I've been in the coffee world for over 26 years, most of them at Starbucks, dating back to when there were six stores.  While Briggo uses robotics, cloud computing, and lots of other hi-tech tools, our aim is to be a coffee company first.  We have a great blend that is roasted here in Austin (WE buy the beans direct, and Third Coast roasts for us.)  Our lattes are as good as any I've ever made on a La Marzocco.  We use top-quality, very fancy coffees in our blend.  If anyone on this board is in Austin, and is curious, feel free to email me at tim.kern@briggo.com and I'd be happy to show you what we're up to.  I hope I haven't violated any community norms with this post...just trying to add a little info.

Thanks for posting. I like to think I have an open mind and will try new things. I wish I were a little closer. I would take you up on your offer in a quick second. Good luck!

Of course it is . . . welcome, Tim, to CG.

I hope you understand the organic skeptic nature of the group -- we are, after all, Coffee Geek.  I hereby promise that if I ever see a Briggo kiosk, I will try it.  But I find your comment that

a bit hard to swallow . . . difficult to believe.  ;^)

That said, best of luck . . . and -- again -- I hope you understand the skepticism.

There is a company that is close to where I live that offers a retail vending espresso machine. I have never met these guys or tried their product.... interesting to listen to them though.....
