When I was growing up I asked my parents on Fathers Day and Mothers Day why there wasnt a Sons Day or Daughters Day? Of course my parents would explain to me with a smirk on their face that every day is kids day. Well National Coffee Day is Sunday (September 29th) but you might say every day is coffee day when you dive into consumption statistics.
Here in the United States coffee has become as much a part of the nations fabric as hot dogs and apple pie. According to Coffeemarvel.com approximately 450 million cups of coffee are consumed per day in the U.S. You could even say its the fuel that starts the countrys motor on a daily basis as 68% of U.S. citizens have their first cup within a hour of waking up. Even more telling, three of every five residents claim they need a cup of coffee to start their day. To see more of coffeemarvel.com data check out some interesting coffee facts here.
