This popped up in my Facebook newsfeed the other day and as someone working in the industry, I agree with this whole heartedly! I did some research and found this stat came from a US study done in 2011 by Career Builder and Dunkin Donut’s (original article can be found here, from the study here).
Prior to working in the industry, I hardly ever drank coffee. But during my uni days and over various work placements in the industry, I acquired a taste for the ever-so popular liquidy black stuff. And now as a full time worker in the industry, it is safe to say that while I’m not an addict, I do enjoy a rich, creamy and frothy coffee from the local coffee shop or coffee van which stops outside my workplace, on an (almost) daily basis. It’s starting to become quite an expensive habit – one which I may need to curb in the New Year!
Even though this stat is over 2 years old – I’m sure it is still highly relevant, though I would be interested to know if our industry still holds the number 2 spot, or if we have moved up or down the list to number 1!
Have a happy coffee drinking day!
