The coffee chain that received 36 percent of the tally, or 9,000 votes, probably won’t come as a shock. It was Starbucks. However, the runner up was the “other” category, which might be very surprising. As it turns out, there were several additional options that prevailed among the comments of the poll.
The “other” category received 30 percent of the votes from 7,500 people. Many of them said that they brew their own coffee at home. For some, making coffee at home was because it was a cheaper option, while others explained it was a new habit due to the pandemic. Another popular write-in was local coffee shops which patrons felt they needed to support. As far as other chains that people wrote in, Tim Hortons, Caribou Coffee, Dutch Bros, and McDonald’s were among the most frequent additions.
So there you have it: a lot of options for coffee drinkers, and everyone has their favorite. No matter where you get your coffee though — whether at home, the local shop, or major chain — it should be the best way you can kick-start your day.
