Dunkin' to brew up new espresso-based drinks? It's worth a shot. 

The announcement comes just about a month after Dunkin' dropped "Donuts" from its name, signaling that it would be changing up its menu.

Lattes, cappuccinos, and Americanos are what you can to find on their new menu. The new beverages are expected to be available nationally for the holidays. 

"Our goal is to be America's most loved beverage-led, to-go brand. In other words, we want to be known for great coffee fast," said Justin Drake, Dunkin' Brands senior manager of public relations

The chain is also making their drinks slightly less-expensive than those found on the menu at Starbucks and McDonald's — which both offer a variety of espresso-based beverages. 

In addition to selling espresso in stores, Dunkin' has also delivered a limited-time espresso blend for Keurig's K-cups.
