3 Florida Cities Rank Among the Top Best for Coffee Lovers
Mark your calendars because National Coffee Day is just around the corner; it’s on September 29. The National Coffee Association (NCA) reported that 63% of Americans prefer coffee over any other drink, even water. In celebration of the beverage, the personal finance website WalletHub released its report on the best coffee cities in America.
WalletHub conducted a comprehensive analysis of the 100 largest cities to assess coffee culture’s strength in American cities. They evaluated these cities based on 12 key indicators, which included factors such as the concentration of coffee shops, coffee houses, and cafes per capita, as well as the average price of coffee packs. Each indicator received a rating on a 100-point scale. The overall rankings were determined by calculating each city’s weighted average across all these metrics, with a higher score indicating the best cities for coffee enthusiasts. The maximum score possible was set at 100.
3 Florida cities rank in the top 20 for coffee lovers
Orlando secured the 4th spot in the rankings. It stood out in the rankings for having the highest concentration of coffee shops, coffee houses, and cafes per square root of its population. Following closely, Tampa claimed the 6th spot, while Miami also earned a spot in the top 20, ranking at number 12.
The top positions in this ranking are San Francisco, California, holding the #1 spot, followed closely by Portland, Oregon, at #2, and Seattle, Washington, securing the third place. Interestingly, Starbucks began at Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, establishing its first store before expanding into a global chain with over 35,000 locations. This historical association with coffee culture might contribute to Seattle’s high ranking.
The study also revealed that Raleigh, North Carolina, has the most budget-friendly average price for a pack of coffee at just $3.54. Meanwhile, in Fremont, California, households show the highest average annual spending on coffee, reaching $229.62. Over in Gilbert, Arizona, 31.51 percent of households own a single-cup/pod-brewing coffee maker. Lastly, Portland, Oregon, takes the lead with the highest number of coffee and tea manufacturers per square root of its population.
