Square really wants to be a part of your daily routine, so what better place to start than coffee?

Square announced a new feature on Wednesday that lets customers pre-order a cup of coffee so that their beverage is ready when they arrive.

The centerpiece of the feature is something Square has dubbed “arrival prediction,” which is essentially a fancy name for a location tracker. The customer’s pre-order is only submitted to the baristas when the app determines they need to start brewing the coffee, based on the customer’s current location and the prep time for the drink.
