Briggo isn’t the only company to pursue a robotic coffee venture. There’s also the Marley Coffee Machine , which croons Bob Marley tunes while the robot within the box prepares coffee from freshly ground beans.

Approximately three-quarters of Canadians aged 18-79 (78%) indicate they’ve consumed coffee in the past week. A total of 83% of Canadians say they’ve enjoyed coffee in the past-year.
