Ugh, another Monday. Just because it is the start of the work week or school week, doesn't mean we have to suffer. Instead, let us turn to the warm embrace of coffee.

Whether you are a big fan of coffee or impressed by Korea's outstanding coffee culture, this list of surprising Korean coffees will bring a little more pep (or disbelief) to your Monday morning!

Coffee Jelly Frappuccino

Originating from Japan, this popular method of enjoying coffee is crossing over into Korean coffee as well. Imagine Earl Grey Jelly with a dark roast. I'll take 7.

Cotton Candy Latte

If you know you can't make it through the day without 10 cups of coffee then you need this sugary overdose. Loaded with sweet flavors and topped with cotton candy, it is the perfect 'pick me, pick me, pick me up!'

Broccoli Latte

If you always hear your friends nagging, "Coffee is bad for you," then rub this in their faces. Not only will the smell get you going but also the coffee will give you enough energy to do yoga later. The Broccoli Latte - for the vegetarian in us, I suppose.

Black Sesame Coffee

A common Asian delight, the Black Sesame Coffee can be served hot or cold but always maintains a rich, bold flavor. It is gritty (like our Monday morning attitudes) and packs a punch.

Tiramisu Coffee

Some people believe coffee is more of a dessert rather than a breakfast essential. In this case, it is! Coffee is always getting a bit more extreme with their flavors, so why not indulge in some Tiramisu Coffee? Have your cake and eat it too yo.

Sweet Potato Latte

Ah~ Sweet potato. The secret source of health for many K-Pop idols has been grounded down into the beverage of champions. Add some sugar, milk, even a bit of cinnamon or caramel syrup - no matter what you choose, the Sweet Potato Latte will leave you feeling like an idol. 

Selfie Foam Latte

Custom coffee cups? Puh-lease! Put those narcissistic items of the past in the trash and make your coffee really stand out! The Korean cafe, CaFace, specializes in putting your selfie as foam art on their coffee. No more accidental "Who took a sip of my coffee?" when your face is on it. However, I'll be drinking my venti cup of Siwon~

    I went to CaFace. Honestly the coffee isn't the best, it's just one of things you do to say you've done it.

    I've tried the tiramisu, black sesame (but as a smoothie), sweet potato latte, and iced coffee with coffee jelly. At bubble tea and korean branch cafes in CA. My fav is the one with jelly!
