Co-living: Building community with coffee

Seen as a combination of a hotel with the set up of student accommodation, co-living presents the concept of co-living to a new workforce who choose a different way of living.

The value of human interaction with coffee.

Corporate society is changing. Traditional practises are being disrupted by co-working and co-living spaces. Co-living facilities are becoming increasingly popular as technology enables people to work remotely, with the prospect of working within a community of similar minded people with endless possibilities for networking. Whether it be in a kitchen or a community space, a premium coffee machine can help establish a significant hot spot for human interaction in co-living spaces. This can make all the difference to the co-living space environment and the wellbeing of residents.

Why TopBrewer is a good investment for co-living spaces

TopBrewer speed and quality

Be the Barista

TopBrewer contactless coffee

Touchless control

By using the TopBrewer app you can customise and brew your favourite drink without touching the machine. Create a safe, reassuring environment with touchless ordering and optional contactless payment.

Future proof

Regular over the air updates keep your machine upgraded with the latest advancements in technology. Why invest multiple times in inflexible assets that degrade over time when you can invest in a dynamic, future-proof asset once?

Sustainable design

TopBrewer is constructed with recyclable, high-quality stainless steel and aluminium. The tamper pressure is adjusted precisely before brewing to ensure an accurate brew time. At the same time, our specially developed eco-friendly flash heating technology heats fresh water to the perfect temperature faster than you can press the espresso button.

Co-living Community

Far from the more conventional shared living spaces, co-living is a modern form of communal living in which residents get a private bedroom in a furnished building with shared common areas with enough social space to provide progressive, barista-quality coffee for residents. The co-living movement is popular in major cities as a means of affordable living for students, workers, entrepreneurs or individuals relocating. Unlike traditional apartments, co-living tends to be attractive to tenants due to affordability, flexibility, included amenities, and a sense of community. A high-end, strategically-placed coffee machine offers a simple yet effective way of building relationships between residents, allowing them to chat and socialise in a relaxed and informal way as they enjoy a coffee.

Co-living productivity spaces

Overall, 28% of employers report that an increase in home working has boosted productivity, while 37% say it has not impacted productivity levels. People who live and work in mixed co-living spaces tend to have similar priorities and work ethics. As a result, co-living/co-workers can often achieve great things and strive to conquer their objectives. This culminates in a dynamic community offering to share and learn from each another to strive for success in their respected careers. Members of co-living spaces are self-motivated individuals who enjoy both the freedom of working remotely in addition to the strength of being surrounded by a supportive community. Companies that provide mixed-use co-living spaces understand the need of creating diverse surroundings that encourage a healthy balance of work and enjoyment.

Co-living technology

Technology plays a key role within the world of co-living. Technology is used in co-living environments to personalise and improve residents’ living experiences. Technology has also become frequently used to expand security in co-living spaces, with digital check-ins and smart locks becoming standard features. Providing a smart bluetooth-enabled coffee machine for residents enables them to use their own personal device to make their coffee. Giving them the freedom to personalise their beverage experience and save their favourite drink so that it really feels like home.

Environmental benefits of co-living

Research shows that one of the essential benefits of co-living spaces is the environmental value. Add in the fact that living in community enables the decline in waste and consumption through the sharing of space and resources, and it becomes a very attractive proposition. Social and economic values are key for many young people within society. At Scanomat, we are constantly innovating and striving to give our users the most efficient possible experience so they are always in touch with their sustainable lifestyle. TopBrewer is built with longevity in mind to avoid the need to frequently replace coffee equipment. In addition, our coffee is sustainably sourced direct from our partner farms and fully traceable.
