(CBS/CNN) — The sweet relief of an afternoon pick-me-up just got so much better. Starbucks is giving away tall handcrafted espresso drinks from 1 to 2 p.m. at over 1,000 locations nationwide until the new year, including some around Boston.

Don’t try to roll up to just any Starbucks location, though. The free goodies are coming to a limited amount of select locations each day until December 31.

The locations of the “parties” will change daily, so be sure to check their little golden map of free coffee joy to see if there’s a pop-up near you.

No luck? You can check back each day of the pop-up palooza to see if one of the day’s parties has landed nearby.

On Friday, five locations in Massachusetts planned to participate. They are the Starbucks at 12 Winter St. in Boston, 755 Boylston St. in Boston, 430 McClellan Highway in East Boston, 116 Main St. in Haverhill and 1346 Worcester Road in Natick.

Starbucks says they’ll reveal another 200 locations each day until the espresso-fest is over.

Not a Starbucks lover? Dunkin’ has been offering $2 medium hot or iced lattes, cappuccinos and Americanos from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of the year.
