National Coffee Association Facts and Figures

A_small_cup_of_coffeeAccording to the National Coffee Association, 83% of U.S. adults drink coffee in one form or another. That number reflects an increase of 5% in consumption in these United States since last year’s study. Of those coffee drinkers, about one-third drink a specially prepared coffee drink (think lattes, cappuccinos, mochas). Their findings have been published in their 2013 National Coffee Drinking Trends, which has tracked annual coffee consumption trends of U.S. consumers for over 60 years.

A few other fast facts about coffee drinking from the survey:

  • New York City is highly caffeinated (wouldn’t you know it), with households there spending about 3 times the national average on coffee.
  • There are nearly 800 coffee spots in NYC, not including street vendors.
  • Ownership of single-cup brewers is up to 12%.
