Bonavitas, the San Francisco-based coffee shop chain, is taking another step toward a long-held dream: building an all-electronic coffee machine.
A new $200,000 coffee-makers for business, called Bonavitas, is designed to provide the same efficiency, convenience and service that customers expect at coffee shops, like Starbucks, but at a fraction of the cost.
At the heart of the new machines is a coffee-maker-size coffee filter, similar to the one used in Starbucks machines.
The company says the new design also uses less energy.
“A lot of people are saying, ‘We don’t want to use any machines,'” Bonavites co-founder Adam Bittner said.
“But the truth is that we’re not going to be able to make the same coffee in the same time frame with a machine.
The machines we have today are expensive and not that efficient.
We wanted to make something that we would use every day, even if we weren’t at work, and that would also be really convenient and convenient to use.”
The new machines are available in both a small coffee machine and a full-size model, which costs $150.
The company is still in the testing phase of the project.
The first batch will be available to customers starting in late March, and then Bonavity hopes to roll out the machines to all coffee shops by early April.
The coffee machines, which will be sold at a price point of $250 for the full-sized machine and $200 for the small, will be a big deal for Bonavities.
They are intended to compete with the likes of Starbucks, where consumers are paying as much as $100 for a cup of coffee.
The cost of a cup has been rising for decades, from $2 to $3 per cup, with a rise of as much 1,000% over the past 10 years, according to the New York Times.
Coffee is an expensive product, and Bonavitaros goal is to make it as affordable as possible.
A full-service coffee shop, which includes a bar and a barista, costs between $15 and $20 per person.
In Bonaviti’s vision, the full range of coffee drinks, including lattes, cappuccinos and lattes will cost $3 to $6 per cup.
To help pay for the new technology, Bonavittos said the company plans to build out its distribution network.
The company plans on using the machines for retail stores and other retail outlets across the U.S., and will be in touch with retailers as they build out the infrastructure.
It is also in the process of selling the coffee-based machines to other companies, including coffee-service providers like Starbucks and restaurants, according the company.
It has been an exciting ride for BonAVita.
The business has grown to more than 40 employees, and Bittners father, Mark, is now running the company, along with his brother, Mike, who is president.
