Meet the Androids: Series 03 Preview (pt4)

If you ask for a “venti mocha blaster”, or a “frappa caramel whatsit”, this Android will kick you out of the cafe before you can even finish your obnoxious branding babble order. Stop talking made up nonsense, here’s your espresso. Drink it within 15 seconds and move along.

Android mini collectibles series 03 Barista Bot

When my sister opened Cafe Grumpy here in Brooklyn 7 years ago I helped her out by designing the logo.. and then somehow I was drafted into serving a brief stint as a barista. I never drank much coffee before that, so by the end of the day I looked pretty much like this guy.

    Hey Andrew! Do you know the ratio for Barista Bot? I, uh…. have a spreadsheet of all the Androids and kind of would like that info. For collection purposes. I KNOW… I’m a compulsive nerd….

    Darn you, Andrew! =) I hit the Cafe Grumpy link and now I want one of those plush coffee beans…. Do you know if there will be any more available on the site for online purchase? Those are neat.

    • They get a new supply every few months, hopefully before the end of the year! They’re all individually hand made so it can take a while 🙂

  • oops I accidentally deleted this post + comments yesterday, sorry about that!
