Some of our faves for getting a caffeine fix
We want coffee. We need coffee. It’s the fuel that propels us to participate in that dreaded meeting with corporate and gives us the energy to immerse ourselves in errands. Sometimes that comforting jolt of java is the only thing that gets us through the day.
If you can’t live without your regular coffee treat, you’re not alone. According to the National Coffee Association, coffee consumption in the U.S. has hit a two-decade high, with 66% of Americans who report drinking coffee daily.
The same survey reports that at-home coffee consumption is up as well. This you?
If your morning ritual includes brewing up your own cup of joe, we have a suggestion you might want to consider.
To ensure you don’t get caught without your caffeine, try a coffee subscription (although prescription may be more apropos.) It’s a great option to make sure you always have your favorite brand handy when you’re craving a cup.
We’ve evaluated some top coffee subscription options. Each of them offers a monthly delivery of Here’s a rundown of four of our caffeinated favorites.
