coffee haus: yves behar designs the ultimate coffee experience for briggo




austin startup briggo has partnered with yves behar’s fuseproject to develop a new, highly personalizable experience for coffee. the ‘coffee haus’ smart kiosk looks and smells like a coffeeshop, but is directly integrated with a smartphone app and web service that lets individuals build their own beverages to precise specifications. users can set the exact time they’d like to pick up their drink at the ‘coffee haus’– the system will in any case automatically send a text message when their order is up– eliminating lines and waiting. feedback and adjustments can be made via the app or website until one finds the perfect cup, which can then be obtained precisely from any ‘coffee haus’ anywhere in the world.




designed in collaboration with yves behar’s fuseproject, the ‘coffee haus’ offers automated technology in a structure that still looks, smells, and feels familiar to the coffee drinking experience




the ‘coffee haus’ relies on technology designed by charles studor to provide automated artisan coffees. the design of the 4 x 12 x 8 -foot structure is easily installable in public locations as well as cafés; its warm wood veneers and house-like form are more reminiscent of a local café than a vending machine, and sounds of beans grinding or other parts of the coffee-making process give the ‘haus’ a more familiar feel. touch screens are also embedded into the structure for last-minute orders or individuals without a smart phone or web access.


the first briggo ‘coffee haus’ will open on the university of texas campus in austin.




coffee orders can be placed via smartphone or web app
