In honor of both National Coffee Day (September 29) and International Coffee Day (October 1) last week, we asked Time Out readers which coffee shops they love a latte. Now we're spilling the tea—er, coffee—on which coffeeshops to add to your list.

Consider this guide as a companion to our reporting on The 24 best coffee shops in NYC where you'll see plenty of overlap. Several places were submitted over and over, so we marked those ones with an asterisk.* It's worth noting that we haven't personally vetted every place on the following list, but we trust all of our readers' recommendations enough to share. Plus, dear readers, you've also introduced us to some new spots to check out, and that's simply brewtiful. Enough with the puns, onto the list, from A-Z.
