The aptly named 'Green Apron Delivery' is Starbucks' new delivery service that will operate out of New York's Empire State Building. Sadly for most, the service will only be available at the classic New York skyscraper and will only work out of this pilot location.

The service is connected to the Starbucks Rewards app, where users will select their drink of choice and add it to the cart. As most Starbucks Rewards users have their app connected to PayPal or credit card, payment upon delivery is eliminated, adding even more convenience. Within a half hour, a Starbucks runner will have your coffee on hand.

Drinks will be delivered in large rectangular bags, specially designed for the runners which ensures freshness and easy transport. The Green Apron Delivery service remains a pilot project because each building will have to be handled differently -- with every location having its own logistical issues.
