Friends don’t let friends drink Starbucks. My favorite thing to do when visiting a new city is check out the local coffeeshop gems and chat up the regulars. Which lead me to meet NYC local @fliickman (shot here at Happy Bones NYC), who gave me his top 5 spots in New York.
@happybones | @lacolombe | @tobysbrooklyn | @thirdrailcoffee | @sweatshop
All great places to drink coffee with the NY locals, people watch, and soak in the vibes of the city. If you’re a coffee purist, Matt Perger dropped a pretty shady but accurate list of “good” coffeeshops in NYC.
@fliickman is a freelance photographer based in NYC. Catch him in the streets, or shoot him a message if you’d like to work with him.
Coming up on CC. Do me a favor and add your good lookin’ self to this mailing list to get updates on the interviews in real time.
Tyler Wells, Blacktop Coffee (among other things)

Luke Woodard + Ryan De Remer, Sweatshop NYC
Get on that good good right when it comes up. Mailing list HERE.
Something always compelled me to tell the story, to document and visually craft the inspiration I saw around me. So, with what feels like years in my subconscious and a few sleepless weeks this summer (not without the help of my dear friend Phil @ Fillainy+Co.), the Caffeine Chaser profiles were born. These profiles aim to highlight entrepreneurial creatives who serve their customers by connecting them not only with their neighbors but the greater community. These people add depth and dimension to their neighborhoods as the city gems that we all seek to discover when we travel.
Suggestions, ideas, and comments, welcome. I’d love for you to follow along and join me on this ambitious journey I’ve set out for myself.
Welcome to Caffeine Chaser.
