Hot cup of joe, chilly cold brew, frothy mocha—choose your brew and then sit back and take in the best of coffee design. Java makes us happy (and ALERT!) and these excellent designs are equally stimulating.

Our Top 9 at 99 competition is back with a fresh batch of nine nominees. This month’s designs include an old timey brand for a Brooklyn coffee cart, a rockabilly barista t-shirt, a photorealistic coffee connoisseur and more!

So who’s our November winner? This month was a tough choice, but in the end we’re pleased to announce that St. Pelmeni has won for their beautifully detailed Borealis Coffee Company mug design:
