A new coffee house has reportedly opened in Japan offering an unusual customer service. Customers of the Tokyo`s Henna Cafe can get a cup of coffee served by a robot.

The name of the robot is Sawyer. It is a single-arm machine that can scan a ticket bought from a vending machine and greet customers, as ABC News reports.

Sawyer is programmed to ask: “Would you care for a delicious coffee?”, adding that he can make better coffee than human beings there. Then, the machine can grind the coffee beans, fill a filter and pour hot water, brewing coffee for up to five people at once. The cost of a paper cup of robot brewed coffee is 320 yen ($3) and takes no more than few minutes.

The machine is also able to work with an automated machine for six other hot drinks like cappuccino, hot chocolate and green tea latte.

The travel agency H.I.S. Co. that operates the cafe told ABC News that the idea is to increase productivity, while providing an enjoyable experience for the customers.

According to Masataka Tamaki, a general manager of corporate planning at H.I.S, the robot can be an optimal solution because there is only one person needed to oversee it. At a regular coffee shop, several employees are being paid to serve good quality coffee at a reasonable price.

Another reason for introducing a robot in the cafe is entertainment. Customers find it interesting and entertaining to receive their coffee from a robot. So, it is also a way to attract visitors and grow the business.
