Technology also brings coffee with the new innovation.
The Bubble Lab, a company doing robotic products of the coffeemaker. Their amazing products in a row—The Drip and Drop Machine, The Water Heater, and the Filter have made the coffee bar a high-efficient place for you to get coffee, enjoy then go. These products have not been released on the market yet, but I was told that the company will sell them next year both in the US and China.
In this festival, some pastry companies have also got their booth and introduce delivery service to most of the cafes in New York City. Patisserie Vanessa, the handcrafted daily kitchen located in La Marqueta, Harlem, has offered catering service by taking orders from their virtual pastry shop. You can have your individual French Pastries by baked-to-order on click.
Yes, delivery lets you get the food from elsewhere, and the AI-powered system can let this process become even quicker. SumAll, a social media-based software help cafes automate their back office administrations like ordering inventory and scheduling staff. You can not only manage the supply chain better but also, as they say, “makes creating and maintaining your hourly employees’ schedules easy”.
DeLonghi, the coffee appliance manufacturer has an Instagram game for the attendee to join. You can pick one of the boards which have hashtagged types of coffees to take photos with, then posted on social media. If you have the luck to win, the prize would be one fancy espresso maker.
And this is not the only chance you can take photos. Right near the entrance, there is one photo booth which you can take selfies with friends, then you can either email it or get one tangible color photo in seconds.
