Square Order App Lets You Ditch the Coffee Shop Line


If you’ve ever waited in a line at Starbucks, with the pressure of being late to work hovering in the back of your mind, you’ll definitely appreciate this news.

According to Engadget, the Square Order app now offers a service where you can put in your coffee order ahead of time through your phone, and simply walk in to pick it up. No lines.

Once you put in your order, using the location settings on your phone, the barista gets notified when you’re getting closer to the coffee shop, and they can get started on your drink so it’s ready when you arrive.

The payment is automatically processed through the app, so you can just walk into the shop, grab your drink and get the hell out of there in a matter of seconds. Laughing at the suckers in line optional.

The app also saves the specifics of your orders, so if you like your coffee customized a certain way, it’ll save it for a smoother ordering process the next time around.

So far, Blue Bottle is the only cafe teamed up with Square, but it does open the door for other cafes and chains to join in. We’re looking at you, Starbucks.
