Beanhunter, a caf review app and website, has partnered up with Uber to help its users connect with their favourite coffee spots.

Beanhunter users can now book an Uber car ride to a caf included in the app, a move which CEO James Crawford said is all about delivering customers with great service.

“Anything we can do to make getting to the best cafes easier is great for our users. What better way to do this than to partner with the world’s most recognised and respected ride sharing business, Uber.”

A spokesperson from Uber said “We’re always looking at ways to enhance the rider experience, whether that’s by improving our technology to make it safer and more affordable to get from A to B or working with like-minded innovative companies such as Beanhunter to give riders more convenient ways to explore their city.

“By integrating our technology into the Beanhunter app we’ve created a seamless experience for people to find the best [cafes].”

Just last month Uber announced a partnership with food rescue organisation, OzHarvest, which will see it support the Think.Eat.Save campaign which encourages people to make a pledge to reduce the amount of food they send to landfill. To kick off the new partnership, Uber donated $10,000 – which equates to 20,000 meals for those in need – and for one day only, (Friday 26 June) Uber delivered lunch prepared by some of the nation’s top restaurants for $12.

It’s also teamed up with popular gelato brand, Messina, and this Friday will give out the recently developed ‘UberX Scoop’ gelato flavour to new Uber users in Sydney and the surrounding areas.
