A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found coffee consumption has increased in the U.S. by 6.6% between 2008 and 2014.
Researchers found that coffee drinkers drank 1.3 cups (or 6 cups) per day from 2000 through 2013, a 3.5% increase from the previous year.
The number of Americans who drink coffee rose 5.9% between 2000 and 2014, from 6.9 million to 7.1 million, the study found.
The study found that consumption of caffeinated beverages was up across age groups, with white people drinking more than half of the caffeinated drinks and blacks consuming more than two-thirds.
The study found a 10% increase in women’s consumption of coffee, and a 12% increase for men.
The authors of the study also noted that while the researchers used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which covers people 18 years or older, the researchers did not have data from earlier NHANES surveys.
The NHANET is a national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the U of M, and the University of Michigan.
