Here’s a somewhat silly factoid to get you through Wednesday: According to a survey of 4,700 workers by Dunkin Donuts, the professions that consume the most coffee are, in order: scientists, marketers, PR people, education administrators, and editors and writers.
Of everyone who drinks coffee at work, 61 percent drink at least two cups a day. Workers in the northeast are most likely to drink coffee daily, and growing numbers of people aged 18-24 now say that coffee has helped their careers “by providing an opportunity to network with other co-workers,” Dunkin said.
Last, a disturbing trend: Writers and editors are also among those most likely to flavor their coffee. Yech.
