This Map Shows the Best Coffee Cities Across America

Here's where to find happy coffee lovers across the country.

Americans drink around 146 billion cups of coffee a year, so it’s no surprise that nearly every city is dotted with coffee shops. From your local java joint to the ever-present Starbucks, it’s not hard to find a latte on every block. In fact, this is the best coffee shop in your state.

However, some places in the United States take their morning cup of coffee more seriously than the rest. The good folks at WalletHub decided to rank the 100 most populated cities in the United States based on 12 metrics, including the affordability of coffee, the percentage of adult coffee drinkers, and even doughnut shops per capita. (Because there’s nothing better than a freshly baked doughnut with your morning cuppa!) WalletHub also took into account the average price for a pound of coffee and the number of households with a coffee maker at home. If you’re one of those households, watch out for these ways you’re shortening the life of your coffee maker.

The winner was Seattle, which turned out to be the best city for coffee lovers. That’s no surprise—it’s where Starbucks got its start. Seattle was closely followed by San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. For another coffee curiosity, here’s why Starbucks sizes are Grande, Venti, and Trenta.

If you’ve got your heart set on delicious doughnuts, head over to Chicago, which ranked first with the most doughnut shops per capita. For a super-affordable cappuccino, move to Hialeah, Florida. Unfortunately, Toledo, Ohio, is a no-go for caffeine-lovers—it ranked dead last on the list.
