Right now, pretty much the only option you have to get coffee delivered to your desk is to ask intern Jeff to get some for you, and he requires several days' notice (because he only comes in on Thursdays and Fridays, remember?). But soon, Starbucks is going to change all that. Where, before, there was a coffee-shaped void next to your laptop in the morning, there will be soon be sweet, sweet caffeine, ordered via your phone.
The café giant has announced plans to expand their mobile app's services by offering customers in select cities the opportunity to get their coffee delivered to them whenever they choose. You'll most likely even be able to have a standing order that gets sent to you every day at the same time, if you're one of those don't-talk-to-me-before-I've-had-my-cup people.
The delivery service will most likely be rolled out sometime in the second half of 2015.
