For those desperate to get their caffeine delivered to their shaking hand in a morning Starbucks is joining forces with Uber to make your dreams a reality. 

 

It’s starting off in 6 major cities as I suppose a trial of some kind. In 6 months though I suspect this will be the norm. 

 

They are starting off in San Francisco before the roll out continues on to New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. 

 

In the end Uber will be delivering Starbucks coffee and chow from about 3,500 stores. About a quater of all in the U.S.

 

I don’t know maybe I am just a big old skeptic but this does seem like an unholy alliance. You know food delivery, coffee delivery whatever. I suppose its all harmless good old capitalism, but do we really need it?

 

They have even developed new transport packaging to keep the coffee temperature consistent for 30 minutes. Woop Woop. 

 

Oh yeah and Uber eats is the fastest growing fast food delivery in the US @ 150% per annum.
