Could we BE any more excited to try this Back Bay coffee shop?

This news is sure to perk up any “Friends” fans out there. A real-life coffee shop inspired by the sitcom’s Central Perk hangout is coming to Boston. Take that, New York City.

The first permanent location of the “Friends"-themed cafe will open its doors on Newbury Street later this year, according to People.

Thanks to a collaboration between Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment and CenPer Holdings, the fully functional coffeehouse will serve java inspired by the show. Think: The “How you Doin?” medium roast blend + “We Were on a Coffee Break” dark roast blend.

This isn’t the first time our city has welcomed a “Friends” establishment. Anyone else remember the pop-up experience in Fenway a few years ago?

While we wait for more details about the coffee shop and gossip spot, brush up on some of the sitcom’s most memorable Central Perk moments.
