This map, created by Quartz using data from Euromonitor, reveals that the US doesn't even make into the top 15 coffee drinking nations. In fact, US residents average just 0.931 cups of coffee per day—which compares poorly with the Dutch, who top the leaderboard by drinking a jitter-inducing 2.414. Elsewhere, the UK, notoriously a nation of tea drinkers, lives up to its reputation, drinking just 0.389 cups a day. You can see the full run down in the bar chart below, also from Quartz. [Quartz]
