Botrista (pronounced Bot-REES-tuh) was founded in 2017 by Sean Hsu. Sean has worked in robotics for more than 12 years, and has extensive experience in industrial engineering and process efficiency. A serial entrepreneur, he has owned dozens of technologies and invention patents. He spent four years at Tesla, where he built automation manufacturing lines at multiple factories, specializing in robotics and the liquid dispensing process.
Knowing that many dining guests are moving away from soda, Sean and his team developed a mission to use technology to make craft beverages more accessible and affordable for restaurants so they may provide superior drink offerings to their guests. Botrista (robotic barista) was created to allow establishments to offer options like fruit and milk teas, lemonade blends, iced coffees and sparkling sodas with quality ingredients made quickly, easily, consistently with minimal space.
We continue to work with partners who want to provide a superior beverage menu.
