Incheon International Airport

Coffee-making robot coming to Austin-Bergstrom airport

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is well-loved for its weekly schedule of live, local music and for the great array of local food outlets in the terminals.

Now AUS is getting a new “attraction” – a robotic coffee-making machine, courtesy of¬†Austin-based Briggo.

The machine will be located across from Gate 8 and travelers will be able to order coffee, hot chocolate or Chai tea via an app or at the machine. App users will get a text when their order is ready to pick up.

Briggo says theirs is the first app-based, robotic, 24/7 specialty coffee system installed in an airport, although Orville the robot prepares and delivers coffee in the IT Experience Zone in Terminal 2 at Incheon International Airport in South Korea Рphoto below.

Souvenir Sunday at South Korea’s Incheon Airport

Each Sunday is Souvenir Sunday here at, a day to look at some of the fun and inexpensive items you can find in gift shops at airports.

This week’s treasures come from Ross Reynolds (my husband), who found these cute little dolls for sale in South Korea’s Incheon International Airport . He didn’t buy them for me, but he is a big fan of Souvenir Sunday.

No need for dolls? If you’re stuck at Incheon airport, you can while away the time at the Korean Culture Museum, the traditional craft gallery, the Observation Deck or in the gardens.

Want to participate in Souvenir Sunday? If you spot a souvenir that’s inexpensive, offbeat and “of” the city or region, please snap a photo and send it along. If your souvenir is featured on, I’ll send you a travel-related souvenir.
