Best Cities for Coffee in America


    Where to get the best cup of Joe.

    Starbucks may have started the trend for coffee shops being available in almost every neighborhood. According to a recent poll, nearly two-thirds of US adults drink coffee at 2.7 cups per day. Americans consume 146 billion cups per year which makes us the world’s largest consumers of java.

    Even with strong brands like Starbucks, great coffee is still a very local endeavor. WalletHub put together a national survey listing the best cities for Coffee in America.
