Portland Starbucks addicts can now order eggnog lattes with an app


Related devices



The lines at Starbucks are infamous — you can be stuck in one for half an hour, especially if you make the mistake of stopping in on your way to work. After all, baristas can only make complicated orders so fast. But what if there were a way to let your barista know that you wanted an eggnog latte with extra whipped cream before you even stepped through the door? Prepare yourselves, coffee addicts — Starbucks has finally introduced a mobile app update that lets you order your morning latte and skip the line.

The only downside to this amazing development is that Starbucks Mobile Order & Pay app update only works for iPhone users in Portland, Oregon right now. If you’re one of the lucky few who happens to fulfill both of these requirements, you can download the app on the iOS App Store. Starbucks says it will roll out the app nationwide in 2015, and promises the Android app will be updated before that happens.

The coffee chain integrated mobile orders and payments into its existing mobile app, so it works with the My Starbucks Rewards loyalty program. So far, Apple Pay isn’t supported by the app, but it seems likely that it will be soon, as Starbucks is listed as a future partner on Apple’s website. It’s unclear whether Google Wallet and other mobile payment apps will work with the Starbucks app in the future.

Starbucks Mobile Order App

Regardless of whether or not mobile payment apps integrate into Starbucks’ new mobile order and pay feature, it should still make getting a cup of Joe easier and faster. Here’s how it works:

  • Download the latest version of the Starbucks app from the App Store
  • Open the app and click on Order at the top right of the screen
  • Select your drink and customize it just like you would in the cafe
  • Select your favorite Starbucks location (you can also check wait times at different cafes to get your coffee faster and the app will give directions)
  • Confirm purchase by tapping order, and you’ll pay with your registered Starbucks Card
  • Head to the Starbucks cafe you selected and pick up your order

If there’s any confusion when you go to pick up your order, you simply say your name and mention that you placed a mobile order. Your Starbucks barista will then  hand over your drink and whatever else you ordered as soon as it’s ready. You can’t pre-schedule orders yet, but Starbucks’ chief digital officer Adam Brotman told the Oregonian that scheduled orders are coming soon, too. He also said that users will soon be able to check each cafe’s inventory, so that they don’t find out the Starbucks they ordered from is all out of holiday gingerbread.
