 In Cool Stuff, coffee, common use spaces, Multi-Family Housing, Spotted in the Wild

KMA Senior Access Planner, Lisa Pilorz, recently spotted the new Starbucks’ Serenade Single-Cup Brewer during one of her multifamily accessibility construction audits.

Single-cup brewers are often included in lounges and common use kitchens and are frequently cited because the controls are not within an accessible reach range.   The new Serenade Single-Cup Server has an International Symbol of Accessibility icon within the accessible reach range, that when pushed allows a user to scroll through the menu using a forward and back arrow.

We hope to see more of these and similar accessible dispensers in our audits.
