With a successful background in technology-oriented startups, Matan Sharf and his co-founders of ansā found themselves attracted to the coffee business, an industry with plenty of room for innovative technology.
In this episode of Automatic Merchandiser’s Vending & OCS Nation, host Bob Tullio explores the journey of a tech startup that plans to cause some disruption in the coffee service channel, in the best sense of the word.
About four years ago, ansā began the process of inventing a micro roaster with the ability to roast fresh coffee on demand in a workplace. OCS operators may want to pay attention to its model, which almost sounds too good to be true. With no capital investment required, a low wholesale price for single origin green coffee beans (not sold at warehouse stores), total sustainability and today’s workplace environment that craves something special in the OCS channel – operators around the country are lining up to get on board.
