Coffee Drinking Statistics

cups07It’s springtime, when flowers and coffee drinking statistics are in bloom. For sixty years the National Coffee Association (NCA) has published a drinking trends survey each spring. In the last few years, Zagat’s has jumped in and also publishes the results of a survey in the spring. An important difference between the two surveys is the NCA results apply to “all adults” in the U.S. while the Zagat results applies only to “adult coffee drinkers.” Those are our sources here.
