New Yorkers are branded with a number of stereotypes: we're mean, we're always in a rush, we're addicted to coffee, etc...

While this isn't the time or place to speak on the first two, we can say with absolute certainty that we do in fact rely quite heavily on caffeine. 

This is mainly for two reasons: one is that in such a fast-paced city, it's essential to keep ourselves fueled with equally fast-paced beverages. 

And the other reason is that there's just so many damn good coffee joints in NYC.

Not only do these places serve up some of the best brews around, but also some of the most creative. Sometimes the average cup of joe doesn't doesn't cut it, right? Right.

Read on to discover all the insane and insanely delicious coffee drinks you should be experiencing in NYC. 

1. Santina (820 Washington Street)

If you're looking for a way to spice up your cold brew habit, look no further than Santina. 

This High Line-adjacent, Mediterranean style Italian restaurant serves up a delicious, tropical take on cold brew during breakfast and brunch. 

Their cold brew concoction involves cold brew, espresso, and house-made coconut cream. It's super sweet, refreshing, and downright indulgent. You need it in your life. 

2. Hi-Collar (214 East 10th Street)

We can almost guarantee that even those of us who consider ourselves coffee connoisseurs have yet to experience Japanese-inspired coffee.

Well, get ready to check that one off your coffee bucket list. Hi-Collar offers a variety of unique coffee blends, but they specialize in siphon coffee, a brewing technique that produces light-bodied, fruity notes. 

3. Third Rail (240 Sullivan Street)
