NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks says it will start delivering to customers in select parts of Seattle and New York City later this year.

The details will be discussed at the coffee chain’s annual meeting Wednesday.

In Seattle, it will team up with a company called Postmates to deliver to homes and offices within specific areas. In New York City, delivery will be from existing or newly setup Starbucks shops in certain buildings, starting with the Empire State Building.

Starbucks Chief Digital Officer Adam Brotman said there will be no minimum purchase required, but that deliveries will require “a small flat fee.” He declined to say what the exact fee will be.

Brotman said the average time for deliveries will be 30 minutes, starting from when the order is placed.
