The official Starbucks app for iOS has gotten an over-the-air update that enabled the ability to place an order right from the app, but only for users in Portland, Oregon. Users will now be able to create an order and pay for it directly from their phones, and find their coffee waiting for them at the counter when they arrive.

To start using the new ordering feature, just open up the app and look for the new “Order” tab on the main screen. Users hoping to take advantage of the feature outside of Portland will need to wait, but probably not for long. Starbucks says it wants to roll the feature out on a city-by-city basis in 2015.

The Starbucks app is available for free on the iOS App Store.
