Starbucks to test pilot hand delivery at the Empire State Building

Jillian Anthony

Now your caffeine fix can come straight to your door—if you work in the Empire State Building, that is.

Starbucks will start testing delivery in Seattle and New York City starting Wednesday, specifically in the historic building that once served as King Kong's playground, Bloomberg reports. Customers will order online through Starbucks' website, and eventually through a mobile app—your coffee will be hand-delivered to you by an employee from a nearby branch. People in Seattle can already order ahead and pay through their phones on the mobile app at 650 Starbucks locations (8 million orders are placed each week), and delivery is the next step in their expansion master plan.

Corporate employees of Walgreens, Bank of America and LinkedIn, all Empire State tenants, must be totally psyched. If that's not you, try one of our favorite food delivery services instead, and keep hoping for the day Starbucks delivery is available to one and all.
