Folgers and a Bunn brewer aren’t cutting it for millennial workers. “Coffee” means something else to the Starbucks generation.

That’s why trendy offices around San Diego have a sleek new latte machine humming quietly in their break rooms — the VendiBean robot. Designed by a couple of local college students barely in their 20s, the machines are a noticeable improvement on the hospital-grade coffee stations of yesteryear.

VendiBean uses artisanal coffee beans from local roasters like Ryan Bros., and the machine grinds it freshly for every cup.

The founders said they also hunted for high quality milks and offer non-dairy options for the vegans. The result? VendiBean’s coconut mocha lattes rival those of chain coffee shops.

Founded by sister brother duo Teal, 24, and Tristan Cooper, 22, last year, VendiBean was meant to be the 24-hour stop for young folks looking for their coffee fix. The siblings planned to roll out the machine on every college campus and shopping mall across San Diego. But it turns out retail wasn’t going to work.
