Coffee Crazed USA - Americans will cross mountains to get their coffee

Waterbury, VT, October 21, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) A survey conducted on behalf of Green Mountain Coffee® shows what many of us would already suspect: America is a coffee-crazed country. In fact, according to Green Mountain Coffee’s Fair Trade-Out Survey, nearly 1 in 10 Americans would “absolutely” walk from the North Rim to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, bike 100 miles or hike Mr. Rainier (9% for each) to make sure they got their daily cup. And one in six Americans would cry on Oprah’s couch on live TV (16%) or make an appearance on Jersey Shore (15%).

Furthermore, the survey indicates that 1 in 3 Americans confess that they believe they need coffee every day, and on average drink 2.6 cups of coffee per day. Approximately 1 in 4 (26%) drinks four or more cups daily.

But even with all the coffee drinking in America, it seems very few people know much about the coffee in their cup, including how to make it, where it comes from, and perhaps most importantly, how their choice of coffee can have an impact on communities around the world. Conducted in celebration of Fair Trade Month in October, The Fair Trade-Out Survey explores America’s relationship with coffee and aims to educate coffee drinkers on the benefits of trading out their coffee for Fair Trade Certified™ varieties. Fair Trade provides a fair, minimum price to coffee farmers for their beans, resulting in higher quality coffee, and a higher quality of life in coffee-farming communities.
