What Country Drinks The Most Coffee? (Bonus – Awesome Cafés To Boot)

Last Updated on

In today’s society, most adults, and teenagers that live in the United States drink coffee daily and usually more than one cup of coffee, to boot.

The first cup of coffee dates back to the 15th century, and ever since it has been one of the worlds greatest inventions.

If you are like me or most normal people, a fresh cup of brewed coffee in the morning is the best way to get the day started no doubt about it. Honestly some days I have 2-3 cups of coffee just to get through the day.

If it wasn’t for McDonald’s iced coffee I’m not sure how I would be able to function throughout the day. As I’m taking the first couple sips of coffee I wonder how I would actually manage without my morning coffee (it was a dumb question, I know.

I couldn’t manage without coffee because id probably go insane), how much coffee do we really drink, where is the most coffee drank at in the world, and where are the best coffee shops at?


Which Country Drinks The Most Coffee? (Kg Per Person)

More than half a trillion cups of coffee are consumed each year!

The average coffee shop prepares and sells about 200-300 cups of coffee a day, which also equals up to a total of 2.25 billion cups a year.

Now, there are about 193-195 countries in the whole world, in the United States, we rank at number 25 for coffee usage, which is 4.2 kilograms per person a year. 

I myself drink a lot of coffee, especially iced coffee, I love it…so it’s kinda hard to believe that anyone drinks more coffee than us here in America, but shockingly its true.

The top 5 counties for coffee usage are Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, and the Netherlands.


Finland (Cafe Regatta – Merikannontie 8, Helsinki)

It is a little red hut by the sea, in the north west of Helsinki. They always have a fresh pot of coffee ready for you, along with tea, grilled sausages of course, and sweet treats.

In Iceland, if you want to go out and meet up with some friends for some delicious hot chocolate, coffee, tea, yummy sandwiches, stacks of waffles topped with whipped cream and jelly or slice of cake then you need to go to Mokka Kaffi!

Mokka was the very first coffee shop ever to be built in Reykjavik, Iceland back in 1958, not only was it the first coffee house ever built here but for the first time they served espressos, cappuccinos, and the lattes in Reykjavik and became popular very quickly.

Truthfully not many people went when it first opened because for 1. Its cold,  2. Why would you go out for coffee when you could make it at home? , and 3. You can save more money. 

But eventually, over time the residents in Iceland became hooked when they realized going down to Mokka Kaffi to have coffee or a bite to eat with friends wasn’t as bad idea at all.
