Americans love a good cup of joe. According to the National Coffee Association, 62 percent of Americans drink coffee daily. But while coffee might hold beloved status throughout the U.S., not all places are created equal when it comes to finding a truly good cup.
Using Yelp data, the following is a ranking of the caffeine capitals in America based off each city's "Caffeine Score," which takes into account the total number of coffee and tea shops, the number of shops with at least a four-star rating (out of a possible five stars) and how the shops' Yelp ratings compare to the average rating of all restaurants in the city. The ranking only considers cities with at least 100,000 residents.
This list contains some of the usual suspects — Seattle, where Starbucks got its start in 1971, makes it into the top 10 — but the ranking does offer up some surprises.
