Takeaway coffee from a machine. It’s not rocket science, is it? With the involvement of an aeronautical design firm in Costa Express’s newly unveiled self-serve coffee machine it almost is.

Costa Express, the vending machine division of Costa Coffee, last month unveiled its five senses machine in Dubai International Airport. A machine that can serve 250 varieties of coffee at a finger touch across a screen.

The swanky new Concourse A of Terminal 3 prides itself on introducing new brands and concepts to the travel retail market and Costa’s management thought it the perfect place for the Marlow 200 machine’s debut.

Named after the English town where the developers agreed to go ahead with the investment and development plan, the machine is designed to appeal to all five senses and take coffee-on-the-run to a more exalted level. More info
