AUSTIN, TX -- Briggo Inc.'s first automated Coffee Haus operated by customers' smartphones is up and running at The University of Texas in Austin.

The mobile website (and soon-to-be released Briggo iPhone and Android app) gives customers full control of their coffee experience with drink customization, purchasing, text notification, social media sharing and "favoriting" of a drink for easy re-ordering. Location mapping helps the customer choose a kiosk and see the wait time and order remotely ahead of arrival.

At the machine, customers can see the robotics in action as well as order status, wait times and progress in the coffee queue.

The machine individually grinds and brews each espresso beverage and prepares it to order using artisan coffees, fresh milk and syrups.

"Our Coffee Haus creates artisan coffee drinks 24/7 with a level of accuracy never before seen in the coffee world, and the automated ordering system via the Briggo mobile website streamlines the process," said Kevin Nater, chief executive of Briggo. "Our customers easily, quickly get their favorite coffee the exact same way, every single time, without any hassle or wait."

The company said it has plans to open additional locations in airports, hospitals, corporate campuses, universities and other strategic locations "where mobility and quality are key."
