The Netflix Of Coffee Gets You Unlimited Caffeine For $85 A Month

The concept is simple enough: how about a monthly subscription service where you can drink all the coffee you want? Genius. CUPS is a mobile app that connects coffee lovers with indie coffee shops all over New York City. It's totally easy to use and, frankly, long overdue for us sleepy commuters. Most of the participating coffee shop are in lower Manhattan at the moment — hear that, Brooklyn? Official proof that Manhattan is way better. 


For $45 a month you can get walk into any participating coffee shop for any brew, drip, pour-over, filter, and tea you want. $85 gets you the Foreign Flair plan— i.e. anything you want with the addition of espressos, americanos, cappuccinos, macchiatos, lattes, and iced coffee. Find the drink you want in the app, give your phone to the cashier with a payment code, and drink yourself into a caffeinated coma.
