If you’re in need of an extra caffeine boost later in the week, head to Starbucks. As Thrillist reports, the coffee chain is offering complimentary macchiatos at participating U.S. locations from August 3 to August 7.

The promotion, called Meet for Macchiatos, isn’t entirely free. To take part in the giveaway, customers must first pay for a macchiato of any flavor between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. With that purchase a second macchiato comes at no extra cost.

You can take advantage of the special offer to treat a friend, or you can keep both drinks for yourself when your energy reserves are running low at the end of a workday. Whichever macchiato flavors are sold at your local Starbucks—which may include caramel, coconut milk mocha, and straight espresso—are available through the promotion. In addition to the traditional hot beverage, customers can also order their macchiatos iced, which sounds like a tempting option for the first weekend in August.
