In a city of $10 lattes and $6 pour-overs, it can seem like sometimes you may be forced to choose between buying a cup and paying your rent.

But there is such a thing as good coffee that doesn't set you back more than a few bucks. (You coffee snob.) 

Here are some of the best, cheap coffees in NYC that cost less than a ride on the subway. Just don't spill on your commute!
