Coffee-drinkers will adore the smartphone CUPS app that helps caffeine junkies find cafes close to them and get a discount on a cup of coffee.
The CUPS app works by letting users find a cafe location neares to them and letting them virtually order their drink with a discounted fee. As the user walks into the cafe, they show the barista the payment code that shows up on their mobile after they ordered the drink. The barista whips up their drink and customers get to enjoy a refreshing cup of coffee in just a matter of seconds. The CUPS app is a great way to promote and support local, small cafes rather than coffee franchises.
Sadly, the CUPS app is only currently available to New Yorkers. Hopefully once the app takes off, it'll be available in several countries.
