Need more coffee in the morning to wake you up? Tim Hortons knows where you're coming from.

The coffee and donut chain announced on Monday that it will be releasing on January 23rd a new 24 oz extra-large cup of coffee. The current extra-large, a mere 20 oz, will now be a large. The chain is not getting rid of its smallest cup, which comes in at a teeny, tiny 8 oz.

"By shifting the sizes, we're able to provide coffee lovers with a full range of five size options: from extra small, all the way up to the new extra large," said Dave McKay, Tim Hortons' director of brand marketing for beverages. Prices of existing sizes will stay the same the chain said in a release.

Tim Hortons has launched a number of new products in recent months. The chain began brewing espresso-based drinks in November to try to stay competitive with fast food and coffee rivals McDonalds and Starbucks. Earlier in the fall, Tim Hortons expanded its menu offerings and began selling lasagna.

Massive cups of coffee aren't anything new. Starbucks got attention when it launched its Trenta size last year. That cup is 31 oz but only available for the chain's cold drinks.
