Of all of the fake, made-up holidays, National Coffee Day is the best. Coffee jump-starts your day, tastes amazing, and makes you look like a real professional as you carry your cup down the street. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to duck out of the office for a bit every afternoon. 

In celebration of our favorite beverage, the Daily Dot scoured Instagram for artists who took it a step further and created beautiful works of art from a cup of joe. 

This artist gets it. Everyone needs a hug sometimes. Even your brain.

There is coffee art, and then there is this.

Happy National Coffee Day! May your cup never be empty and your buzz carry you until quittin’ time.
