A robot is now serving coffee on Green Street

There is a new coffeeshop in Campustown called Yummy Future, and it has a robot barista. The robot is named Mozart, and Mozart can make a cup of coffee in less than 30 seconds. Coffee, matcha, hot chocolate, and fruit tea can made by the robot barista.

On a wooden counter, there is a small white robot with a very long arm gripping a white paper coffee cup. On the three trays on the table are a variety of other colorful drinks in clear to go cups. Photo from Yummy Future's Instagram. Photo from Yummy Future’s Instagram.
