More than half of American adults have a daily cup of coffee. In fact, according to a WalletHub survey, 64% of people said they’d had coffee the day before. This number has continuously grown over the past decade, as Americans become more and more caffeinated, spending $74 billion on coffee each year. Many of these people headed to a coffee shop near their home or work to get their caffeine fix.

Varying Coffee Prices
If you want to find cheaper bags of coffee, head to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the lowest average price of coffee is found in the entire U.S. If you want to spend a bit more, then Honolulu, Hawaii, or Columbus, Ohio, is the place for you, with an average price twice what you’ll find in Tulsa. The survey didn’t say anything about quality, so judge for yourself next time you visit one of these locations.
Is There Such a Thing as Too Much Coffee?
The average American drinks 2.1 coffee beverages a day, and many people wonder about the limit of coffee they can or should be drinking. Is there such a thing as too much? The Mayo Clinic suggests four cups of coffee each day is a safe amount to drink. Their report suggests anything over the 400 mg of caffeine could cause strain or stress to your heart and your health. As long as you fall somewhere around the average, or even slightly higher than average, you won’t have to worry too much. (Be sure to check with your doctor if you have any concerns, though.)
