Article – Coffee per year

Here’s an interesting graphic from The Korea Herald about how much coffee an average Korean drinks in a year. The interesting, thing, however, is not the amount. Look at what a small chunk of that cup brewed coffee, i.e. coffee made by a barista in a café, takes up! It’s only about 1/7 of the total coffee. Imagine if Koreans replaced their coffee mixes with more trips to the neighborhood café… Cafés would have to multiply even more. My school went from having 0 cafés nearby last year to 4 as I write in May 2017 [May 9 update: make that 5! another one just opened a few days ago]… this could easily go up to 10. We’ll see what happens…

  1. Hey, thanks for the like. Great blog. The thought that occurs to me is that coffee in Korea is much more expensive than in Canada/U.S. (and elsewhere I believe?) I mean, in a cafe its at least 2,000 won or more. Seems that it would be rather expensive for Koreans to buy more of their coffees at cafes! Cheers.
