A few years ago I worked with a startup were our mission was to make ordering your coffee as convenient as possible by not having to wait in line but to simply be able to place your order and pay for it with your phone. You could do this while being on the train into work and then pick up your order as you made your way into the office. I have experienced myself a number of times, that I would place an order while on the bus on my way into work about 5 minutes before my stop. Get off the bus and walk down the street to the coffee shop, walk past a queue of about 5 or 6 waiting customers, being greeted by name and handed my coffee, thanked the barista and walked out. The look on the faces of some of those waiting in line is hard to describe.
