You can already order your coffee from Starbucks before you get there, and soon you may be able to do the same from another popular purveyor of the brew. Dunkin' Donuts is testing mobile ordering through its app at locations in Portland, Maine. What's more, a few stores in Dallas are trying their hand at delivery and some in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington will begin coffee drop-offs soon. The move follows coffee giant Starbucks getting into both ordering ahead and delivery, so it's likely Dunkin' Donuts is looking to keep pace by offering its customers an easier way to get their caffeine and sugar fix. Of course, a number of other restaurants also offer similar services, including the likes of Chipotle and Taco Bell. As both ordering and delivery are in the trial phase, there's no word on when the services will expand nationwide in the US or to the company's limited footprint in the UK and other countries.

Update: This post was updated to correct the fact that there aren't 124 Dunkin' Donuts locations in Portland, Maine, contrary to Bloomberg's report.
