Starbucks will roll out a delivery service next year

If you can't spend the morning without a $4 latte, your caffeine habit is about to get a little bit easier.

Howard Schultz, Starbucks' CEO, has announced plans to launch a Starbucks delivery service in select markets late next year. The delivery service will offer both food and beverages from Starbucks.

The service will integrated into Starbucks' new smartphone app, which will be released in Portland, Oregon, next month before it becomes available to the rest of the country. The app will allow coffee lovers to order and pay for their deliveries using their smartphones.

"Imagine the ability to create a standing order of Starbucks delivered hot to your desk daily," Schultz said at the company's earnings conference call on Thursday. "That's our version of e-commerce on steroids."
