Sept. 22, 2012

Earlier this week, the National Coffee Association unveiled research that delved into the coffee habits of Hispanic-Americans. The study found that Hispanic-Americans consume "significantly" more coffee than non-Hispanics.

In a statement, the association said that the report, Ethnicity and Coffee, shows that 74% of Hispanic-Americans drink coffee daily, which is 12 percentage points more than other Americans.

The report also found that Hispanic-Americans appear to choose more premium coffee types than non-Hispanic-Americans; 46% said they drink gourmet coffee beverages daily versus 29% of non-Hispanics. The espresso figure was 32% versus 11%.
