Personal finance website WalletHub on Tuesday released its 2017 list of "Best Coffee Cities in America" in anticipation of National Coffee Day.
America is the No. 1 country for coffee consumption, with millennials accounting for about 44 percent of all U.S. coffee demand, according to a 2016 report from Bloomberg.
WalletHub compared 100 of America’s most populated city on 14 key metrics to determine what cities were best for coffee lovers. Among the metrics were:
- The average price per pack of coffee
- The average price of a cappuccino
- The average spending on coffee per household
- The share of households that own coffee makers
- The number of coffee shops, coffee houses and cafes per capita
- The amount of Google search traffic for the term “coffee”
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Seattle topped the list with a score of 68.58 out of 100.
