coffee cupMen’s Health just released a top 10 list of coffee-crazed cities – Colorado Springs strikes again.

We’re No. 6! Which confirms what a snapshot of my work desk could tell you. Plus, Starbucks recently mailed me a gold card for my stellar ability to make a purchase at one of their stores almost daily. Seriously. Don’t judge. I refuse to feel guilty about one of the only vices I have left.

“Don’t really drink, don’t smoke, what do you do?”

You drink coffee, that’s what you do.

From the press release:

To determine the rankings, Men’s Health looked at the percentage of households
that own coffeemakers and buy coffee; household average spent on coffee; coffee
shops per capita (SimplyMap); percentage of people who drink coffee and who
drink five-plus cups a day (Experian Marketing Services). For full rankings and
methodology, visit: For more information visit MensHealth.com/metrogrades.
