Austria’s First Qbo Coffee Store Opened at Landstraßer Hauptstraße
Last week the brand new Qbo Coffee Shop at Landstraßer Hauptstraße 23 opened its doors to a selected crowd of journalists, bloggers and local coffee enthusiasts. Since I consider myself a true coffee lover, of course I was there to take an exclusive first look at this stylish new coffee boutique located in Viennas third district for you. The shop itself convinces with a stylish open concept space and modern wooden design. Apparently the location will also be available for private bookings and events.
At the opening event my mate Paul and I had a great time meeting interesting people from all different kinds of industries. Besides hanging out with our fellow bloggers Jean-Paul from New Kiss on the Blog, Des & Jen and Nina from nhmml, we listened to an interesting expert discussion on current trends and customer demand for individualization and enjoyed some good talks with the people standing behind Qbo. Inspired by the enthusiasm for coffee culture on that evening I tried out so many different coffees that I couldn’t fall asleep until three AM that night :).
Introducing the Qbo Coffee System: Create Your Favorite Coffee, Be your Own Barista and Share your Coffee Wisdom
Of course I also seized the opportunity to try out Qbo’s innovative coffee system, which allows you to create and customize your own coffee using a simple app. With this tool you can select the size of your cup, amount of coffee, milk and froth, according to your personal preferences. The app will suggest which kind of capsule to use for your creation but you can also pick a different one. Once you’re done you can safe your coffee recipe & send it to your Qbo machine which will have your individual cup of coffee ready within no time. In other words, this revolutionary system allows you to be your own barista. Also, for all the social bees and coffee gurus among you, through the app you can share your individual coffee creations with your friends and gain certain rewards.
As a basis, the Qbo coffee system uses sustainable cubic coffee capsules with different intensities, tastes and roasts. Using 70 years of coffee expertise of Qbo’s mother company Tchibo, these capsules guarantee great coffee quality no matter how you choose to individualize it later on. Last but not least Qbo shows its dedication to modern urban lifestyle with its supercool Qbo coffee trucks, that will be cruising through the streets of Vienna from now on. Simply locate them through the app and get your self-designed Qbo coffee for on the go. Too easy.
That said, the Qbo coffee system sounds like a fantastic innovation for coffee lovers like myself and I can’t wait to get my own machine to start creating my own coffee. Until then you’ll find me out on the streets chasing the two Qbo coffee trucks :).
