Frazy to launch robotic beverage machine for in-home use

Frazy – a US startup specialising in cafe and bar-quality beverages – is set to launch FrazyBot, a robotic beverage machine designed for in-home use. The device is expected to debut at January’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and promises to “revolutionise” the home beverage market.

FrazyBot is a modular system with a base module with a touch panel and water reservoir. Users can snap the drink module into the base module and insert the ingredient box to create their desired drink. The machine also allows users to add their own milk or alcohol.

In addition, it includes “fancy presentation”, including grinding the beans, frothing the milk, creating latte art, or a caramel drizzle on top of the whipped cream. 

Compared to existing in-home beverage machines, the startup says its FrazyBot is compact enough to take up minimal space on kitchen countertops. It has different drink modules designed specifically for coffee, tea, boba, cocktails, or mocktails.

FrazyBot’s “Ingredient-Sensing Robotic Technology (InSeRT)” claims to make drinks more affordable than the average cafe or bar, eliminating the need to go outside to get their refreshments. 

Customers can order their desired beverage off the Frazy website, with every ingredient considered, from the type of milk to the syrup flavour.

The ingredients are packed in a small, shelf-stable, air-tight box and shipped immediately to the customer. The single-use box is then inserted into the machine along with water or alcohol, and with one press of a button, the exact drink is created and prepared as if it were in a cafe or bar. 

Frazy CEO and founder Balaji Krishnan said most in-home devices have claimed to deliver cafe and bar quality in making drinks, but nothing has come close.

“Other in-home beverage machines require users to mix a lengthy list of ingredients manually to make a mess and are often hard to clean,” said Krishnan. 

“Our proprietary robotic technology disrupts the home beverage market and delivers the most authentic experience, creating users’ favourite drinks at home from fresh ingredients with a simple push of a button.”
