Coffee anyone?

Enjoy coffee made by a Robot at Terminal 2! Yes, a robot!

B:eat is a smart café packed with cutting-edge technology including advanced robots and mobile payment systems from Danal, the company that operates Dal.komm Coffee stores.

Coffee is made at a booth where a coffee machine and a robot are installed, while orders can be placed through the Beat coffee app or using a self-checkout machine and paying by credit card.

A cup of Americano is priced at 2,000 won, only half the average price at other coffeehouse chains. When a payment is made, the robot starts brewing coffee before bringing the drink to a pick-up point.
