Coffee Talk: Finland

Did you know that the Finnish consume the most amount of coffee each year? According to the International Coffee Organization via the BBC, per capita coffee consumption in Finland is 12.5kg. Yes, 12.5kg (aka 27.5 pounds) of coffee per person per year! Sweden comes in right behind Finland at around 11kgs (just over 24 pounds) per person.

In fact, Scandinavian/Nordic countries round out all of the top 5 spots (Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, respectively). I’d like to think that I’m doing my part to keep up the United States’s consumption, but alas the US doesn’t even make the top 20!

Guess I gotta start drinking more…
