A Microsoft Outlook add-in will allow you to schedule a coffee meet-up with one simple command

A new feature for email client Microsoft Outlook will allow people to schedule a meeting at Starbucks coffee shops directly from their inbox. The free add-on will add a “Meet at Starbucks” icon to users' menus, where they can click to create a new meeting, select the desired Starbucks location and schedule. According to Outlook, “in this fast-paced, hyper-connected world, where meetings are often conducted remotely or in a formal office setting, we sometimes lose a personal connection which is so important in building a great business relationship. Outlook now makes it easier for you to have that personal connection…with a few clicks from your Outlook inbox.” The shortcut will save a few back and forth emails to arrange a meeting time and location. People will also be able to send Starbucks eGift Cards directly from Outlook, making those obligatory thank-you gifts that much easier.
