Today is National Coffee Day!!

How much coffee do we drink?

Two-thirds of Americans drink coffee, and many gulp down their first cup within an hour of awakening, according to a survey released last Thursday.

On average, the 65 percent of Americans who drink coffee each consume an average of 13 cups of coffee per week, and three out of five agreed with the statement “I need a cup of coffee to start my day.”
