Study Finds Amsterdam Is The Most Coffee Obsessed City In The World

This city is buzzing.

Walking around Amsterdam it’s obvious that we have something of a love affair with coffee. Everywhere you look there are cafes serving delicious brews and coffee shops selling delicious brews, plus weed. So it’s no surprise to us that Amsterdam has scored highly on Brewsmartly.com‘s coffee-obsession index, but it is a surprise that Amsterdam tops the index as the most coffee-obsessed city in the world!

They score cities according to several variables, including coffee shops per capita and import value per capita. Amsterdam got to the top of the list for a number of reasons. For example, there are 116 coffee shops per 100,000 people in Amsterdam, and we assume that includes weedy and non-weedy establishments. Now, that might seem like a lot of coffee places, but Pago Pago in American Samoa has 246.

However, in Pago Pago the import value of coffee per capita is only $0.24, which is pretty shocking compared to $220.44 in Amsterdam. So, we drink a lot of it here and there are certainly plenty of places to grab a coffee in the city. After Amsterdam, Dublin comes second, and it’s not too surprising to learn that Europe is the most coffee-obsessed continent. In fact, 8 of the top 10 coffee-obsessed cities are in Europe.
