Americans are setting records when it comes to drinking coffee. Nearly 65% of adults in the country have at least one cup of coffee every day, an increase from 62% in 2017 and the highest share of coffee drinkers since 2012.

Whether you like the smell or because it improves your focus, whether you find that it helps with your mood or because you like the taste of it, coffee is undoubtedly the go-to drink in the morning for most people.

One of the most popular caffeinated drinks is the cappuccino, especially in Europe. Originally from Italy, where it is usually consumed in the morning, a regular cappuccino contains an equal amounts of espresso, steamed milk, and foamed milk. A single shot of espresso in the beverage has between 6 and 8 grams of coffee.

The local price of cappuccino varies greatly across the world, even in countries with similar purchasing power per person. For example, Angola and Vietnam both have a GDP per capita of about $7,000, but price of cappuccino is 2.5 times higher in the Southern African country.

Finland drinks the most coffee per capita, with more than 26 lbs. per person a year, followed by Norway and Iceland. However, much of the coffee in the world is produced in developing countries, with Brazil being the top exporter, accounting for over 14% of the total coffee exports.
