2016 Best Cities for Coffee

Best cities for coffeeNational Coffee Day has come and gone (the day is observed on September 29), but for many, every day is Coffee Day.

In fact, according to a Gallup poll, nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults today drink coffee, and each averages 2.7 cups of joe per day. But gone are the days of drinking coffee alone at home. Now, coffee offers social lubricant, with tens of thousands of coffee shops acting as hubs at which to gather and enjoy a hot or cold caffeinated (or decaffeinated) beverage.

To commemorate our dependence on the coffee culture, personal finance website WalletHub ranked the best cities for coffee lovers in the U.S.

And Minneapolis comes in at number three!

Given that Portland and Seattle are numbers one and two respectively, number three is not too shabby!

To determine the best cities for partaking in America’s coffee culture, WalletHub’s number crunchers compared the 100 largest cities across 12 key metrics, ranging from “number of coffee shops, coffee houses and cafés per capita” to “average price of a coffee pack.”
