The chain — which produces coffee products in partnership with Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) subsidiary Seattle’s Best Coffee — is doubling its offerings 5 to 10, reports USA TODAY.

Starting this week, the burger chain will replace its existing coffee with a Seattle’s Best standard brand as well as a decaffeinated variety and a hot chocolate. In March comes the next phase: 4 new iced coffees and 4 new lattes. The iced coffees and lattes will come in plain, vanilla, mocha and caramel flavors.

Pricing for the iced coffees will be $1.49, and the lattes will come in two sizes — $2.29 for small and $3.49 for a large. The firm is also considering using the latte machines to bring out a line of cappuccinos in the future.
