Case Study


Searching for new ways to innovate and disrupt, Costa Coffee aimed to deliver premium quality drinks to disrupt the traditional retail model and gain market share. They created their vision of a connected coffee machine but needed help to transform that vision into a reality that could help them conquer the coffee world.


Costa chose Eseye to help design and connect their coffee machines. Using Eseye HERA 600 IoT Edge Hardware they were able to aggregate data from their vast array of sensors. The HERA provides near 100% global connectivity – important for machines that needed to maximise uptime.


Due to the global reliable connectivity – Costa have been able to easily and aggressively scale the rollout of these machines across multiple countries. From telematic data to pushing out new promotions – the smart vending machines have been an unmitigated success.
