More Americans Drinking Coffee

Some people can’t seem to get through the morning without a cup of coffee. Almost everywhere you go in a city you see a coffee shop catering to the coffee drinking desire of Americans. A new study conducted by the National Coffee Association shows that Americans are drinking more coffee than ever, and they are paying a lot for it too.

The National Coffee Association surveyed the coffee drinking habits of 3,000 people. Of those surveyed, 64 percent reported that they drink coffee every single day. 83 percent of people drink coffee at least on a weekly basis.

This number of daily coffee drinkers is two percentage points more than those who reported drinking coffee daily in 2017. It is the highest level of daily coffee drinking reported in the last six year period.

While there seems to be a coffee shop on every corner, most of those surveyed reported that they drink their coffee at home and not at a restaurant or coffee shop. 79 percent of those surveyed drink most of their coffee at home while only 36 percent reported that they drink most of their coffee at a restaurant or coffee shop.

Coffee drinking is increasing, and so is the amount that Americans are spending on coffee. Part of this rise in expenditure is due to the proliferation of gourmet coffees on the market. 48 percent of those surveyed reported that they drink gourmet coffee.

The average American now spends $1,110 per year on coffee. Americans drink more coffee than those who live in any other country on earth.
