Coffee, the bitter beginning to so many people’s mornings, has been enjoyed by humans since at least the 13th century when the first roasted coffee was served. Today, the world drinks somewhere upward of 2 billion cups each day. People kill for it. And sue multimillion dollar corporations over it. We even named a piece of living room furniture for its association with coffee, despite the fact that everyone knows the table is just for propping up your feet.
Given the primacy of coffee in our daily lives, we decided to chart and map some of the finest data on the world’s coffee habits — who drinks it, how we drink it, and how much we guzzle on a daily basis.
