Coffee Consumption: Me vs. The World
Peter Smith points to the above map and observes:
A map of world’s coffee-drinking habits locates the global epicenter far from tropical coffee plantations, in Scandinavia, where coffee consumption is well above the global average is 2.9 pounds (1.3 kilograms) per year.
I drink more coffee a month than the average person does a year. Indeed, I easily go through more than the 12 kilograms annually that represents the top end of the scale.
Considering that I easily exceed similar projections for beer and alcoholic drinks, generally, I’m clearly well hydrated. (Or, perhaps not since caffeine and alcohol are diuretics.)
