Contactless coffee – the future of coffee retail

We all love to grab a great coffee, but have our attitudes towards our beloved coffee shops changed in the new normal? In recent months, hygiene has understandably been at the forefront of our minds due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s inevitable that an increased focus on cleanliness and safety will continue long after the pandemic is over, but how can coffee retail outlets create a comfortable and secure environment for customers and staff to enjoy?

From cafes to service stations to university campuses – providing great coffee is vital, but there are new considerations to add to the mix.  Will customers need to touch any buttons or shared surfaces to order their coffee?

The future of a reassuringly great coffee experience is touchless

It’s no secret that the workplace has changed massively in recent years, and what employees expect from a workplace in 2018 is completely different to what would have been expected just 10 years ago. As the youngest generations start to graduate from university and join the working world, companies are starting to update their spaces to reflect what Generations Y and Z actually want from a workspace.
