How much coffee do Americans drink?

It’s official, people. Americans really do run on coffee. For the first time in 6 years, a new study released by the National Coffee Association suggests that coffee consumption among Americans is at an all-time high.

Think about it. Every corner you turn, there's a coffee shop longing to serve you. If you think you can just walk right by each café, without letting that delicious aroma sweep you off your feet, you're wrong... or maybe just strong. According to the survey, 64% of Americans drink a cup of coffee daily, which is up from 62% in 2017, and the highest percentage since 2012. 

With cold brew trending and new caffeinated beverages always on the horizon, what's interesting to see is the percentage of people still drinking coffee at home. Of the group surveyed, 79% reported having brewed a cup of coffee at home the previous day, while coffee consumed at cafés and other out-of-home experiences totaled 36%. 

Other trends shown in the report may speak for the future of coffee consumption. For example, 48% of millennials say they have had a cup of coffee that they consider to be gourmet, while 9% ordered their coffee off of an app. For a lot of  Americans, the limit does not exist when it comes to getting their cup of joe. 

Along with your much-needed energy boost in the morning, scientific studies suggest that coffee may also help you live longer. I'll drink to that!
