The Starbucks holiday cup has nothing on these international players.

Ordering a cup of coffee isn't what it used to be. Gone are the days of choosing between regular or decaf. Now we're faced with tough decisions like French press or cold brew, drip or pour over? Almond milk or soy? Venti or trenta? With all the trendy ways to take your joe on-the-go, there's also been a Renaissance in the style of cups we're drinking from. And because the internet is magic, there's now an entire Instagram account dedicated to tracking the whole trajectory.

Intrigued? Go ahead and follow @coffeecupsoftheworld and watch as Henry Hargreaves, a high fashion model turned food photographer, makes it a personal mission to share the coolest coffee cups from around the world. We were happy to see some of our NYC favorites, like the lovely floral blue-and-white design from Maman bakery and the quintessential Greek motif cup found in the city's old-school delis, mingling with international players ranging from geometric prints in London to street sketches in Dublin. And how could we not mention the awesome retro palms of an In-N-Out Burger in L.A? Getting your caffeine fix has never looked better.
