Coffee shops everywhere are celebrating today being National Coffee Day. Whether you like yours from home, at work, or from a cafe, I’ll gladly have an extra cup today. Personally, more often than not I drink three cups of coffee a day – and if you’re thinking that’s a lot, that number used to be higher. It turns out I drink more cups of coffee than the average person, according to a survey from YouGov. When asked how many cups of coffee they typically drink on the average day, 42% of respondents said between one and two. The numbers were actually split evenly, with 21% saying one does the trick and another 21% go for a second. The single most popular answer overall was zero, as 32% of respondents say they don’t usually drink the stuff. People like me who enjoy three cups on average make up 11% of the population, while the numbers steadily drop off the higher you go. 6% say they drink 4 cups a day, 3% say they go for 5 cups, 2% drink 6, and believe it or not, another two percent of people out there manage to drink 7 or more cups of coffee a day.
