Nevada City Ranks Among the Top Best for Coffee Lovers
Mark your calendars because National Coffee Day is just around the corner; it takes place on September 29. The National Coffee Association (NCA) reported that 63% of Americans prefer coffee over any other drink, even water. In celebration of the beverage, the personal finance website WalletHub released its report on the best coffee cities in America.
WalletHub conducted a comprehensive analysis of the 100 largest cities to assess coffee culture’s strength in American cities. They evaluated these cities based on 12 key indicators, which included factors such as the concentration of coffee shops, coffee houses, and cafes per capita, as well as the average price of coffee packs. Each indicator received a rating on a 100-point scale. The overall rankings were determined by calculating each city’s weighted average across all these metrics, with a higher score indicating the best cities for coffee enthusiasts. The maximum score was set at 100.
Las Vegas Ranks in the Top 20 for Coffee Lovers
Las Vegas secured the 13th spot in the rankings. It stood out for having the most affordable coffee shops, coffee houses, and cafes per square root of its population. Additional cities in Nevada also earned their spots on the list. North Las Vegas came in at number 57, Reno at 36, and Henderson at 71.
San Francisco, California, was ranked at #1, followed closely by Portland, Oregon, at #2, and Seattle, Washington, securing the third place. Starbucks began at Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, establishing its first store before expanding into a global chain with over 35,000 locations. This historical association with coffee culture might contribute to Seattle’s high ranking.
The study also revealed that Raleigh, North Carolina, has the most budget-friendly average price for a pack of coffee at just $3.54. Meanwhile, in Fremont, California, households show the highest average annual spending on coffee, reaching $229.62. Over in Gilbert, Arizona, 31.51 percent of households own a single-cup/pod-brewing coffee maker. Lastly, Portland, Oregon, takes the lead with the highest number of coffee and tea manufacturers per square root of its population.
