After working in several offices, I’ve found that 99 percent of people only drink two beverages during the workday: coffee and sparkling water. And since the world is filled with genius inventors, it was only a matter of time until someone put the two together. That’s right, folks, caffeinated sparkling water exists now.

Earlier this week, Bustle introduced us to Phocus, a brand of caffeinated sparkling water. The drink comes in several different flavors and it has about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee.

Available in flavors like blood orange, grapefruit, cucumber, and yuzu-lime, Phocus is available for purchase by the case on Amazon. According to the company’s website, it’s also sold in stores in Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, and Kentucky, and they have plans to expand soon.

Eat 11.5 fluid ounce can of the sparkling water is fortified with 75 mg of tea-extracted caffeine and 70 mg of L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in tea. It’s also sugar- and sweetener-free, which makes it the perfect option for those looking to cut back on soda but still want that boost of caffeine.

While you’re waiting for your case of Phocus to arrive, you could make your own caffeinated seltzer: place a shot of espresso or 1 teaspoon matcha tea (whisked with a tablespoon of water and a dollop of honey) in a highball glass, then pour in cold plain seltzer. Add a slice of lemon for a little something extra.
