We wonder if rubbing a coffeepot does the same thing as rubbing a magic lamp? Although honestly, espresso would be our first wish, anyway!

We bet Alice never wondered if she'd find herself in a mug of espresso someday, but she looks absolutely perfect.

We'd be Lee's guest and take a sip of this stunning Beauty and the Beast latte art in a hearbeat if he asked.

A morning cup of coffee already makes us want to dance, but Lee's image of Edgar Degas' "The Star" gives us even more of a pep in our step.

Okay, everyone can go home, Lee has officially won the internet with this E.T. latte art. We love all of the details and that you can even see the texture of E.T.'s body!

Lee might as well have been drawing on paper with this incredible Harley Quinn portrait. All the way down to her smudged lipstick, it's absolutely perfect.

We're going to go ahead and assume Ariel switched up the words of the song to, "I'd like to be where the coffee machines are." (And same girl, same)

We can't even with this My Little Pony coffee art. Seriously, we would struggle to draw this on paper, let alone in a cup of hot espresso!

An image of a sunset is always a winner, but an image of a sunset on a safari in our daily cup of coffee? It's impossible to go wrong.

Okay, this is truly next-level coffee art. From the foamy blue "water" to the Jaws-worthy 3D shark, it's almost too terrifying to drink.

We love Snoopy and Woodstock IRL, but we might love Lee's version in the coffee just as much!

TBH, we've seen Van Gogh recreated on an eyelid for goodness sakes, but never have we seen it floating around in our cup of joe.
