Order your coffee via an iPad/iPhone

Written by Karen Moss

Scanomat will offer consumers the chance to try its revolutionary new coffee system, TopBrewer, thanks to a partnership with John Lewis. The technology is designed to be built into any counter surface and can be operated by an iPhone or iPad, which enables consumers to tailor each drink to their personal requirements, order and pay for their beverage.

These innovation firsts have led to the TopBrewer already accruing an online fanfare prior to launch with nearly 700,000 views on its YouTube channel alone.

The TopBrewer is now available in the John Lewis “The Place to Eat” customer restaurant in Milton Keynes.

Simon Bracken, managing director of Scanomat in the UK says: “The UK is a nation of coffee lovers and Apple fanatics. It’s something that people are passionate about and can’t live without - 70 million cups of coffee are drunk each day in the UK and 11.5 million people in the UK own an iPhone. TopBrewer is bringing together these trends with the most innovatively designed coffee system of our generation."

Tony Peppiatt-Righelato, catering manager at John Lewis Milton Keynes, adds: "What impresses us most about TopBrewer is that it enables us to maintain our high standards; while the TopBrewer is busy creating the perfect drink; our Partners (staff) are free to engage with our customers. The touch pad system is easy to use and the sleek design is very fitting in our newly-refurbished Place to Eat."

The TopBrewer application will be available on the Apple App Store later this month and new retailers will be announced in due course.
