The shot is running too fast.  Robot Fails!

Seriously, how is this different to a Superauto?  Just much more expensive, fragile and undoubtedly temperamental!  The only people scared of losing their jobs courtesy of this monstrosity are the creators!!!

Noted the quick pour Brett.
But as I see that it was a demonstration in Las Vegas, it should at the least, compare well with the majority of US coffee drinker's expectations.  :stir

For most of the so-called coffee shops and Diners over there, instant holds well with probably 90% of the population loving Starsucks!

At least that was my findings from a recent short visit. It got to that stage for me that when I needed coffee it was "dude, where's the nearest SB?"

Yep... I found Intelligentsia in Chicago and a great coffee at Grand Cenral in NY but sport from that  :'(

I ended up drinking Starbucks Filter with Half and Half as my least offensive preferred brew.  How offensive is that!

He / The inventor, notes in the video that he wants the barista to communicate with the customers

Let me just say that a barista is in a coffee shop to make coffee and the server is to communicate with the customers
The odd coffee nutter like me will be attended to by the barista because I ask a question only a barista can answer That is if he / she is a good barista  :stir
