“Stereotypes suggest that Brits favour a builder’s brew over any other beverage but new figures released by the British Coffee Association (BCA) tell a different story.
Reliant on the caffeine spike a morning brew offers to face the day ahead, the BCA has revealed that the UK’s coffee consumption has soared to 95 million cups a day in 2018, up from 70 million in 2008.
That’s an increase of 25 million over the last 10 years.
Part of the research, conducted by the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR), included a survey of 2,000 adults in the UK.
It found that nearly a third of those surveyed said they didn’t drink coffee at all, while at the other end of the scale six per cent admitted to drinking six cups or more a day, with the average person consuming around two cups a day.
Interestingly, it also revealed that 65 per cent of coffee is drunk at home, 25 per cent at work or while studying, and the rest is consumed in shops, bars and restaurants.”
