Portland has been named the best city in the country for coffee lovers, according to a recent study done by WalletHub.
"Ever since Starbucks democratized caffeine in 1971, a coffee culture has emerged in America — and throughout the world, for that matter. According to a Gallup poll, nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults today drink coffee, and each averages 2.7 cups of joe per day. Some estimates even place Americans in the lead of global coffee consumption, at 146 billions cups per year, earning us the status as the most caffeinated — and wired — humans on the planet," said WalletHub.
Portland ranks in a tie for first in cities with the most coffee shops, coffee houses and cafes per capita, as well as most coffee and tea manufacturers per capita.
Portland ranks number one just ahead of Seattle, Washington and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Laredo, Texas has been ranked as the worst city in the country for coffee lovers.
