You Can Now Pre-Order a Coffee With the Starbucks App

By Gerald Lynch on at

Need your morning caffeine fix, but can't face the queues? The UK Starbucks app now lets you pre-order your brew, ready to take away upon arrival.

Already available in 7,000 US stores, it's a baby-steps roll out here in the UK, with the "Mobile Order & Pay" service initially limited to 150 London stores only. On top of that, the feature is rolling out to iOS devices only for now, but Android support is on the way. For those that can make use of the service, hot food is also available to be ordered, with all purchases earning you rewards cards points automatically within the app. [Starbucks]
