Next time you catch a flight out of SFO, make sure you check out Cafe X, a friendly robotic barista that serves fantastic coffee drinks. You can find it after security near Gate B20 in Terminal 1 and near Gate F4 in Terminal 3.
Cafe X is a fully automated robotic arm that maneuvers around an enclosed kiosk, making hot and cold drinks. Items include everything from standard coffee drinks to matcha, teas, and juices. You can also order from a simple food menu.
Place your order on the iPads on the front of the kiosk or from your phone after scanning a QR code. Then you can watch the robot barista prepare your drink, and even give you a friendly wave.
The Spoon reported that Cafe X is in the works at multiple other airports, and they currently have a machine at Dubai’s Museum of the Future. Although Cafe X has popped up at a few other Bay Area locations in the past, these SFO machines are the only ones currently available for the public to use.
Both coffee machines are available in SFO 24 hours a day, but only on the other side of security. You can learn more about Cafe X at their website.
