Hugh: The Professions That Drink The Most and Least Coffee
Written by Hugh Campbell on November 9, 2022
If I asked you what job you think requires a lot of coffee to do, what would you say? Based on personal experience, I would say morning radio host. Well, a recent poll from time2play asked 1,000 Canadians about their coffee drinking habits and compiled a list of the professions that lean the most and least on coffee through the work day. It turns out that the people that drink the most coffee through the day aren’t exactly punching the clock at all – they’re retirees. Just behind the 2.6 cups of coffee consumed by retirees through the day, construction workers came in second at 2.4. In third place are people who work in the life, physical, and social science fields, drinking 2.2 cups per day.
The least caffeinated positions out there are an interesting bunch. Topping the list are students, which I personally find confusing because I started drinking coffee when I was a student BECAUSE I was a student. Those who work in architecture and engineering came next, followed by those in the food preparation and serving industry. One thing is for certain, most of the working world relies on at least some coffee to get through the day. There’s only one group of people where the majority don’t drink coffee at all: the unemployed.
