In Seattle, the coffee chain is collaborating with on-demand delivery service Postmates to integrate delivery into Starbucks' mobile app in select areas. In New York City, Starbucks will test the "Green Apron" barista delivery option that will allow customers in select office-buildings to order food and drinks to be delivered by Starbucks baristas. The test will begin in the Empire State building.

Starbucks delivery will hinge on the chain's mobile ordering and payments app, which officially launched in the Pacific Northwest this week and will roll out nationally this year.
