Bellevue, Wash. -- Coinstar, best known for its Redbox movie rental and its namesake coin-counting kiosks, and Seattle’s Best Coffee, part of Starbucks Coffee Co., have entered into an agreement to roll out Coinstar's new Rubi coffee kiosk in groceries, drug stores and mass merchants. The kiosks will feature a variety of Seattle's Best Coffee beverages.
The rollout will begin this summer, with approximately 500 kiosks expected by the end of the year and thousands of machines in place during the next several years.
"Together, we will deliver the kind of quality, convenience and value that we know coffee drinkers on-the-go will appreciate," said Coinstar CEO Paul Davis in the statement.
The Rubi kiosk will serve brewed Seattle’s coffee and specialty drinks, including mochas and vanilla lattes, with price points starting at $1.00. It occupies approximately nine square feet.
