We can all agree that coffee has become the most important parts of our mornings…and our afternoons…and our evenings. Not only has this godly drink kept our muscles moving, it’s also been proven to improve our mental health as we age — drinking three to five cups a day can decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s by 65%. Pretty sweet isn’t it? Stir in some cream for that sugar as we settle into the top three reasons why coffee deserves an IV drip.
We’ve lost count trying to keep track of all the different ways to drink coffee: hot, cold, lattes, espresso, mocha. There are so many different variations, we could spend our entire lives trying each kind. And we just might; the average American drinks 1.64 cups of coffee a day while 30% of United States’ population drinks coffee occasionally. In fact, 65% of us stir in a little cream or sugar to add to the flavor. Pair that with the variety of flavors brewed into specialty coffees and you’ve got an endless supply of flavor combinations when you stir in your favorite additives. The United States is the world’s largest coffee importer, so we have a lot of options to choose from. Whether you stir up your own coffee at home or grab a custom paper cup from your local shop, the possibilities are endless.
The coffee market has only continued to grow as more and more independent coffee shops open, each with their own aesthetic. While it might be tempting to visit the big box stores and grab a quick drink, supporting your local businesses is always the way to go. Not only does this support help your local area, most coffee shops have custom logos and prints that advertise as you drink! It’s a great way to promote local businesses while still getting your caffeine fix. You can post those cute custom paper cups with the eye-catching logo on your Instagram feed and take pride in knowing you’re helping your local businesses thrive. Just don’t forget to cool it down before popping on the lid and taking a swig.
Our world keeps getting busier and the convenience of an on-the-run coffee is a necessity in our ever-changing climate. Now that we have a growing selection of specialty coffees, we can get the most bang for our buck right from a hot paper cup (or hopefully an IV drip). With a nine ounce cup, you’re not only going to feel energized for your day, you’re going to feel good knowing your taking steps to improve your health. Independent coffee shops sell 31% of the espresso-based drinks on the market, so you’re also getting the strongest brew too!
Whether you’re a casual coffee drinker or a caffeine aficionado, there’s a brew of coffee out there for everyone. Whether it’s served in a cheap paper cup or use cute accessories to stir up excitement, coffee has truly turned into the lifeblood of the quick consumer.
