This article is basically an ad for a product the author is selling. But I found it interesting, and believe it has enough stand-alone informational content to qualify for earthpages’ non-commercial status. Also, I’m not getting paid a cent for taking my time to post it. No connection whatsoever to the author. So I thought I’d just say this before posting (see FAQ about our stand on commercial vs. non-commercial info).  And yes, I’m drinking coffee as I post this… —MC

What Professions Drink the Most Coffee?

By Marcey Barichello

What Professions Drink the Most Coffee?

We all love to drink our coffee, lots and lots of coffee; however, there are certain industries that consume lots more coffee than others. Some industries are notorious for consuming coffee like it is water. So what are they?

  1. Journalists and other media staff
  2. Law officials (policemen)
  3. Teachers
  4. Plumbers and other trade workers
  5. Nurses and other medical professionals (doctors)
  6. Corporate executives
  7. Telesales professionals
  8. IT technical support
  9. Retail employees

10. Drivers (truck drivers, semi-trucks, etc)

So why do journalists and other reporters drink so much coffee? Imagine walking into a newsroom, you might see a large amount of grizzled journalists hunched over keyboards, neckties slightly loosened, sleeves rolled up, maybe a cigar, and a large mug of Joe. Well, newsrooms look rather different than that but you would be correct about the latter part. According to a new survey, Pressat, they surveyed a wide variety of industries and found that journalists drink the most coffee.

85 percent of the professionals, across all the industries, said that they consume at least three cups of coffee per day. Believe it or not, K-Cup coffee has played a big role in the amount of coffee consumed. Having three cups of coffee per day is well beyond the recommended 200 milligrams per day. The professionals in the high-stress jobs, like the ones in that list of 10, drink the most coffee.

It seems that consuming coffee while on the clock is a necessity in today’s professional world. Is it possible that people are being stretched beyond capacity and even working late or early will push professionals to drink more coffee?

70 percent of the people surveyed in this study believe that if they cut their coffee consumption, then their job performance will suffer; whether they cut the coffee out completely or reduce it, they believe quality will decrease. Men turned out to drink a bit more coffee than the women in the study, a whole 5 percent more coffee.

Looking at the list, you can see why coffee is a huge part of their lives. One would even think that medical professionals would consume the most; one may also be surprised to not find military on the list.
