People have been lobbying Starbucks for dairy alternatives for a while now, and the coffee chain is about to answer their pleas with a menu update coming February 17th. Starting that Tuesday, coconut milk will be available in any drink you order at Starbucks nationwide.

According to the site, the national launch of coconut milk follows successful local tests in Portland, Cleveland, and Los Angeles last year. The stuff's already rolled out at Starbucks' fancy Reserve Roastery, and has been slowly arriving in stores ahead of the 17th. How do we know? Well, Starbucks baristas have kinda spilled the beans (coffee puns!) on that:
