How Do People in the U.S. Take Their Coffee?

Most people know that coffee is one of the most beloved beverages in the U.S. as well as all over the world. We know this fact all too well at Torke Family Coffee Roasters, and we aim to share our love of coffee with our community through quality products, transparency, and dedicated service. 

If you drink coffee regularly, you probably like your coffee a certain way. For some, that perfect cup might be a simple fresh-brewed black coffee, while others might prefer a bit more cream, sugar, or foam in their coffee experience. 

Curious about the habits of other coffee drinkers in the U.S.? Here are a few stats about U.S. coffee lovers that might surprise you. 

Cappuccinos and Lattes Rank High, but Regular Coffee Ranks Higher

If you need a bit of creaminess and sweetness in your coffee to get the perfect flavor, drinking black coffee may boggle your mind. However, 38% of coffee drinkers in the U.S. prefer their beverages without sweeteners. 

Regular coffee wins out with most coffee lovers over specialized drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, or cold brew. Traditional iced coffee generally ranks higher than lattes and similar special drinks, but cold brew is near the bottom when it comes to most popular beverages among coffee drinkers.

The most popular specialty coffee drink is the cappuccino, which is slightly less popular than regular coffee. Lattes and mochas are also high on the list. The least popular espresso-based drink is the Americano, which is a combination of espresso and hot water. However, let the record show that the Americano is also one of the least-tried specialty drinks among coffee lovers.  

The Younger Generation Is Embracing Iced Coffee

You may think that a coffee drinker is a coffee drinker no matter their age. Still, there are some noticeable divides between the preferences of coffee lovers over 45 years old and under 45. 

The most significant difference is iced coffee. Iced coffee drinks are twice as popular among coffee drinkers under 45, showing that iced coffee is a more trendy beverage than other options on the coffee shop menu.

Regardless of your preference for coffee, the bottom line is quality. Make sure you always trust reliable brands like Torke Coffee for your morning cup!
