New York City is known as the city that never sleeps, and that's probably because it's pretty hard to feel tired when you're jacked up on java at all hours of the day and night.
When it comes to our beloved coffee, New Yorkers mean business.
And if you live in the concrete jungle, chances are you've seen some pretty impressive things done with your coffee that go beyond correct spelling on the side of your cup.
Recently, Elite Daily teamed with the talented photographer Fliickman and set out to uncover some of the finest coffee shops in the city.
But these cafes aren't your ordinary coffee-pouring, espresso-slinging spots. Instead, these awesome coffee shops have turned their caffeine craft into an art form. Literally.
All of these alluring coffee spots will serve up your latte with a little something extra on top: some beautiful latte art that almost looks too pretty to drink.
From flowing ferns to intricate swirling milk designs, there's no denying the artistic foam formations made by these badass baristas are on point.
If these photos aren't enough to satisfy your caffeine cravings, you'll be glad to know that Fliickman is getting the buzz going on Instagram by tagging all of these incredible works of caffeinated art with the hashtag #CoffeeFliicks.
Seriously, after you see some of these impressive cups of joe, you'll never be able to go back to drinking those basic lattes.
