Introducing Rubi, a Redbox for Coffee (Plus a Code for a Free Cup!)

Vending machines have been around for ages including coffee machines. But my, how the times have changed! Rubi is a new coffee vending machine that stands to change the game for your next cup of joe.

Rubi is basically a Seattle's Best Coffee vending machine.

Rubi vending machines offer coffee on demand that is the same caliber as your local coffee shop.

Produced by Coinstar, the brains behind the movie rental kiosk known as Redbox, Rubi follows the same process for choosing a cup of freshly brewed coffee as you might expect for choosing a movie.

Browse the menu and choose from plain or flavored coffees. Selections include caramel, vanilla, and mocha. Decaf and Hot chocolate are also available.

Each cup start with whole beans from Seattle’s Best Coffee. The beans are ground and pressed for each order.

  1. I love the idea but the machine doent always work. I’ve lost over five dollars . Hopefully they get all the bugs out.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Lloyd! I’ve tried Rubi at two different locations and they’ve worked fine. The coffee has been good, just a little hot when it came out. I just learned to let it cool off for a few minutes before sipping! 😀

  3. Hi,
    I love coffee but we don’t have coffee like this in our area. Thanks for your cool coffee.
