(Pocket-lint) - Seattle-based Starbucks is using Amazon Go's "just walk out" cashierless technology in a new "pickup cafe" that it opened in New York City.

The store, located on 59th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues in midtown Manhattan, allows customers to buy coffee or a snack without having to interact with a barista or cashier. It's one of three pickup locations the coffeemaker plans to open this year. If you visit them, you'll find the Starbucks menu, as well as sandwiches and a "curated assortment" of food and beverages in the Amazon Go market section.

To get your coffee from the "Starbucks Pickup with Amazon Go" in New York City, simply preorder your drink using the Starbucks mobile app, then choose the store at "59th between Park & Lex w/Amazon Go," and go to the store. By the time you get there, it should be sitting for you on the counter.

Drink orders that are in progress will be shown on a screen above the counter. 

To enter the Amazon Go market and store’s lounge seating, customers can use the “In-Store Code” in the Amazon Shopping app, Amazon One or a credit card, and then shop the Amazon Go market like any other Amazon Go store. When you take items off of shelves, they’ll be added to your virtual shopping cart. When you’re done shopping, you can leave the store or sit in the seating area. Your card will be charged once you exit the store.

There are employees at the store to help you, if needed.

The new store will be open daily at 6am ET and will stay open until 10pm ET on weekdays and 9pm ET on weekends.
