Starbucks unveils Thailand’s first unmanned self-serve coffee kiosk

Starbucks Thailand has launched its first-ever self-service machine with full customisable capabilities and digitised payment options.

Located inside Bangkok’s new AIS eSports studio at Samyan Mitrtown mall, the venue aims to serve a boost of caffeine for the gamers, serving beverages 24 hours a day.

In Bangkok, Starbucks has opened a fully automated kiosk for gamers.

A cup of coffee from the machines is priced from US$1.93 (THB 60) which is less than the price at a staffed branch. The drink is fully customisable via a digital touch screen. 

In five easy steps, a consumer can select their drink, tailor it to their liking and scan the QR code to pay either through Rabbit Line Pay or using a general QR code payment through their native banking app. 

Customers can pay for their coffee using a QR code via their banking app.
