Thursday, August 13th, 2020

The fully automated Kopimatic is designed for coffeeshops, drinks stalls, HK & TW style restaurants, as well as bread and cake shops.

“We are delighted to welcome Farquhar VC on board who brings tremendous domain expertise, value and their users as we grow the business in Singapore and regionally. Kopimatic had been previewed by dozens of coffeeshop chain owners, and in the new Covid-19 and pandemic environment, automation is increasingly sought after, and we have taken their commercial inputs and feedback into our planned rollout system,” said Jason Thai, founder of Hawkermatic.

The user pours coffee powder or tea into the brewer, and with a press of a single button, kopi and teh is brewed and pumped into a mixer, with evaporated, condensed milk and sugar solution stored in separate tanks to be added with the same consistency for every single cup.

The staff can follow POS numbers or keypress any standard coffeeshop drink, mixed and configured by micro-controllers to the same standard specific taste for the shop.

The Kopimatic comes in standard coffeeshop counter-top size, and taps into the existing plumbing.

Leasing the machine costs from S$250 per month, upon automation grant approval.
