How much coffee do you drink a day? According to research, the average American drinks 3 cups of coffee a day. Drink more than that? The FDA recommends no more than four to five cups a day for the average healthy adult. More than that could cause things like anxiety, increased heart rate and trouble sleeping. (Business Insider)
Speaking of coffee …We like it. We like it a lot. And we’re willing to pay for it. According to data from the National Coffee Association, the number of Americans drinking at least one cup of coffee a day is the highest it’s been in six years. And it’s not just a cup o’ regular joe that people are drinking. Last year saw the biggest jump in espresso-based drinks, with 24 percent said they had had an espresso drink in the last day. Specialty coffees, like lattes and cappuccinos ordered from coffee shops, grew by 5 percent in the last year … while consumption of regular coffee dropped by 3 percent.
And bring on the cold brew … Total U.S. retail sales of cold brew coffee grew 460% from 2015 to 2017 alone. (Market Watch)
