Introducing ELLA, Singapore’s first fully autonomous robotic barista. An unmanned, contactless café experience that serves barista-quality coffee and engage the senses is no longer a thing of the future.
Designed by Crown Digital, the smart retail solution provider arm of Crown Coffee, the latest version of ELLA, ELLA X, was built on the back of 4 earlier prototypes and experience from serving over 80,000 cups of coffee at over 40 events across the last 2 years. Situated next to Crown Coffee’s CT Hub 2 location, she is the first commercial standalone model designed for unmanned and contactless retail operations that is launched in the public domain.
Fully self-contained with its own mobile app, payment gateway and e-wallet, the end user can order and make payment on the Crown Coffee app on-the-go, while earning rebates by paying using Crown Dollars stored in their Crown Wallet. While ELLA is preparing the coffee, an interactive transparent OLED screen opens up a myriad of possibilities – from serving as an augmented reality photo booth to displaying customised dynamic advertising that is targeted to the end-user’s profile, or even indulging the end-user in a quick game or two. All while ELLA’s six axis robot arm works her magic behind the screen to produce the perfect cup of barista-quality coffee, using high quality Buscaglione Coffee beans that are ground-to-order and freshly frothed milk.

Deliveroo, the on-demand food delivery service, has launched a new Deliveroo Editions site in CT Hub 2, Lavender with seven restaurant partners.
This national roll-out of Deliveroo’s innovative delivery-only service comes one year after Deliveroo opened its first site and underlines Deliveroo’s continued successful expansion across Singapore. Deliveroo raised almost $500m in 2017, pledging rapid growth in its Editions programme, which is now taking place in Singapore and other markets around the world.
A world first for Deliveroo at the Lavender site will be the ‘click-and-collect’ function, where customers in the nearby vicinity can choose to pick up their orders directly from the site, or can order whilst at the site and enjoy their meals in the site’s dine-in space. For consumers who do, there is no delivery fee.
Deliveroo Editions is a revolutionary platform for the Singapore food industry. Editions sites host ‘super kitchens’, specially designed only for the cooking and delivery of specific cuisines. The kitchens are home to new, exciting and often totally unique restaurant brands. Deliveroo is passionate about food and wants to champion local favorites, taking them to new areas.
By being in Deliveroo’s delivery-only super kitchens, restaurants are able to expand without needing a physical presence in the area, enabling restaurants to expand more easily and at lower cost to reach new customers. Restaurants use their own expert and highly passionate chefs, just as they do in their bricks and mortar restaurants, but thanks to Deliveroo they are able to bring the same restaurant-quality dishes to more people in more areas, faster.
Motored by its world leading technology, Deliveroo uses its insights to identify cuisine gaps in the local market and predict which restaurants will succeed in a specific area. This further helps restaurants as they can expand with greater insights and therefore lower risk in addition to taking very little capital risk.
