In the United States alone, 54% of the adult population drinks coffee cups on a daily basis, and another 25% of all Americans drink it once in a while. This means that coffee is part of life for more than three quarters of American adults. This isn't such a big surprise when you know that coffee is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water.

Men drink more coffee than women:

However, when non-coffee drinkers are left out, the average consumption is raised to 3.1 cups per person per day.

According to National Geographic, the first position in coffee producing is awarded to Brazil who delivers 35% of the planet's coffee. Another 12% of world supply for coffee comes from Columbia. Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico, Ethiopia, India, Guatemala, Côte-d'Ivoire and Uganda share the rest of the top ten. Each country specializes in a particular type of bean.
