If you're tired of Starbucks baristas misspelling your name and messing up your drink orders, you may want to consider robots as a more reliable and efficient alternative.

Using Mitsubishi-designed robotic arms and WMF group automatic coffee machines, the device brews, pours, whips, pumps and performs every other action that goes into your coveted morning latte.
“I’ve long been a big coffee consumer and there’s never a guaranteed seamless experience,” Cafe X CEO and Founder Henry Hu said in a statement. “In today’s world, you have two options for getting a cup of coffee: You’re either in and out with something subpar; or you’re waiting in a 15-minute line for a great cappuccino. I started Cafe X to eliminate that inherent compromise and give people access to a tasty cup of coffee consistently and conveniently.”
