Well, you can’t beat a cup of Joe, can you?
I love coffee, I love tea. I love the java jive and it likes me.
Turns out Dubliners have been using that song as their mantra (hold the tea), as we’re officially the second most cofee-obsessed capital city on earth, according to a new study by Brew Smartly.
Yes, we love the java liquid more than any capital in the whole wide world, apart from Dutch capital, Amsterdam.
Dublin has 181 coffee shops for every 100,000 people, only behind Pago Pago – capital of American Samoa – in the list’s top 10 on this measure. The full rating was calculated with this metric as well as the import value of coffee per capita. Moreover, Dublin’s average rating for their beloved shops was 3.91/5, with Amsterdam’s standing the tallest at 4.03/5.
“A city renowned for its love of Guinness is bound to need easy access to caffeine for the morning after. Luckily for residents and visitors of Dublin, there are 181 coffee shops per 100,000 people making the search for a brew effortless,” said Brew Smartly.
“These coffee shops receive an average rating of 3.91 out of five, which shows there is not just an abundance of coffee in this capital, but you can count on it being good too. For this, Dublin receives an overall score of 7.95 in our Coffee Index and is the second most coffee-obsessed capital in the world.”
Boasting 8 of the 10 top spots was Europe, making it the most coffee-obsessed continent. Dublin was joined by Amsterdam, Helsinki, Paris, Bern, Prague, Lisbon, and Copenhagen. Wellington joined Pago Pago as the only non-European entries to the list.
