Coffee Statistics

I don't know why but people (me as well) feel themselves much more comfortable when they are given dry facts from statistics on every occasion. It's strange how some exact (but more often approximate) numbers could help people relax and calm them on an issue.

statistics coffeeCoffee is an issue which really touches various people, no matter if they're "addicted" coffee drinkers or just persons interested in that subject for general development.

Which are the main priorities for people to look for when analyzing a coffee statistics list? For those who dislike coffee, health issues are essential – how many people went sick with coffee, its harmful sides, the countries it is banned, etc.

And people who really like this drink or are average drinkers, are interested in so many topics – where to find a proper coffee maker, what coffee is the best, coffee benefits, and many others.

In order not to torture you anymore, I give you the list with some facts which cannot be considered objective always. Why? Because people are humans with feelings and doubts, they cannot always guarantee a 100% correct answer and because those who make statistics cannot interrogate the whole world or even an entire country.
