Starbucks Delivers Now, But It May Not Be Worth It

Your Starbucks latte might be just the thing to give you a little pick-me-up in the morning, but actually going to pick it up can be a bit of a hassle. Who wants to deal with long lines, cranky customers, and, you know, basic social interaction barely an hour after you woke up? Now you might not have to: Starbucks has started delivering, but before you get too excited, there's a downside.

Starbucks is testing out a delivery feature for residents of Seattle, Washington, which is made possible through the courier service Postmates. Seattle Starbucks addicts can place an order directly through their iOS Starbucks app, and a fresh cup of coffee could be at your desk or front door within 30 to 60 minutes.

Though an hour may seem like a long time to wait for your coffee (especially if you're a caffeine fiend) the service does cut a considerable amount of hassle for those of us not lucky to live or work walking distance from the coffee chain. Instead of spending 20 minutes driving to and waiting at the Starbucks, you could find a productive way to spend that time - like getting 20 more minutes of sleep.

The real downside of the Starbucks delivery service? The absolutely cray price. Place an order for delivery on the Starbucks app and you'll be slapped with a $5.99 fee, and that doesn't even include a tip for your delivery person.

Starbucks delivery may be great for when you're too sick to leave your house, but for that price you might as well schlep yourself to the nearest coffee shop in the AM - or, better yet, recruit your best friend to pick up a grande peppermint mocha when she's grabbing her daily Americano before class. Hey, that's what friends are for, right?
