According a new survey released by Good Earth Coffee
, over a quarter of people surveyed admitted they'd rather start their day with a cup of coffee than a kiss from their significant other. So goes our obsession with coffee.
We apparently are so obsessed with coffee that half of java junkies surveyed would rather give up their cell phone for a week than give up coffee, and 43% would give up going online or checking email for a day than miss their daily cup.
But the economy may be impacting even the strongest addiction. 41% admit to leaving a coffee shop empty handed because they thought the drinks were too expensive. (And 65% said they've left because the line was too long.)
Other things Good Earth found:
- One in five would rather have a cup of coffee as a travel companion than their significant other.
- More than half (55%), say coffee would be harder to give up than sweets.
- 60% believe coffee tastes better when it's served in their favorite mug.
- 56% think skipping morning coffee is more detrimental to their day than skipping breakfast.
- 96% of coffee drinkers who work in offices, drink coffee that was brewed there. And average 6 cups per week, or 312 cups of office-brewed java a year.
- 33% of java lovers drink more coffee per day than they drink water.
- 43% believe the way a person takes their coffee is a good indicator of their personality.
- 44% think that it's much more important to know how their significant other takes their coffee, than what size shirt they wear.
