Coca-Cola has upped its caffeine game with Coca-Cola with Coffee. Coca-Cola

Now you can bring some Coke to the next coffee klatsch.

Last week, Coca-Cola with Coffee and Coca-Cola with Coffee Zero Sugar hit stores nationwide in ready-to-drink coffee aisles.

The new drinks, infused with Brazilian coffee, were first announced in July.

Coca-Cola with Coffee comes in three different flavors: Dark Blend, Vanilla and Caramel. The zero-sugar counterpart comes in Dark Blend and Vanilla.

“Many people are often torn between reaching for a soft drink or a coffee at 3 p.m. at work, at school or on the go,” Coca-Cola Trademark brand director Brandan Strickland said in news release. “Now, you don’t need to leave Coca-Cola to get your coffee fix.”

The company first piloted Coca Cola with Coffee in Japan in 2018. The U.S. is the 50th market to launch this version of the famous carbonated soft drink.

To perk fans up, the new flavor has more than double the amount of caffeine its original formula contained.

All 12-ounce cans have 69 mg of caffeine while the same serving of a Coke has 34 mg and a Diet Coke has 46 mg of caffeine.

Those numbers are closer to the average cup of coffee, which has 95 mg of caffeine.

Coca-Cola with Coffee is 70 calories — half of the calories of regular Coke.

A can of the new coffee has a suggested retail price of $2.32.
