83% of us drink coffee every day.


  
   Recent polls have indicated that around 83% of American adults drink coffee. A significant portion of those consume the beverage every day. Which confirms the legitimacy of the common joking expression, “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my coffee”. The popularity of coffee has only continued to grow over the past few decades. It wasn’t so long ago that many Americans were quite unfamiliar with the idea a hazelnut cappuccino, a vanilla latte, or a caramel macchiato. It wasn't too long before major coffee companies burst onto the scene and became part of the mainstream fast food/beverage world. Then suddenly, coffee and espresso drinks became the refreshment of the future. A notable emerging trend at present is the rise of chilled coffee and espresso beverages as a refreshingly cold summertime alternative to the traditional hot variety. Baristas have been experimenting with methods of cold brewing to concoct an entirely new product.
