In the morning when you pour your first, then second and maybe even a third cup of coffee or in my case drink my first bottle of Diet Pepsi, keep this tidbit from The Dish in mind:
Lindsey Bolger, director of coffee for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, says if you measure the amount of coffee consumed per coffee drinker, the world champions live in Nordic countries. “Depending on which country, they’re up to eight cups of coffee per person, per day. In the U.S., we’re at maybe 2 or 2.5 cups of coffee per day,” she says. Americans actually used to drink a lot more coffee. Per person, we drank almost twice as much during World War II.
I didn’t know that. Did you?
