Best Coffee Cities in America

Best Coffee Cities in America

Ever since Starbucks democratized caffeine in 1971, a strong coffee culture has been brewing in America — and around the world, for that matter. 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. Some estimates even place Americans in the lead of global coffee consumption, at 146 billions cups per year, earning us the status as the most caffeinated humans on the planet.

What gave way to java culture? Science, for one, has convinced us that caffeine possesses multiple health benefits besides mental stimulation. At the right dosages, caffeine contributes to longevity, transforming our carafes and brewing systems into modern-day fountains of youth. Perhaps just as important, though, is coffee’s social purpose.

We no longer enjoy it alone or only at home. Today, coffee stations are a staple of the workplace, and tens of thousands of shops serve as hubs for the mutual enjoyment of hot caffeinated beverages. The creation of these drinks has grown increasingly professional, too. Because of the skill required to make ever fancier coffee, being a barista has become less a part-time job than a career field. Latte art has even inspired a national competition among the most talented baristas.

But some local coffee scenes are stronger than others. To determine the best among them, WalletHub’s data crunchers compared the 100 largest cities across 14 key indicators of coffee lover-friendliness.
