Seattle may be Starbucks’ hometown, but New York City still has the best coffee scene in America, according to a new report.
The Big Apple took the number one spot on WalletHub’s new list of the “Best Coffee Cities in America,” outranking Seattle, which took second place.
WalletHub took America’s 100 largest cities and compared “14 key indicators of coffee lover-friendliness” to arrive at its java-centric results.
“Our data set ranges from coffee shops, coffee houses and cafés per capita to average price per pack of coffee,” the finance site said.
Third on the ranking was San Francisco, followed by Portland, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Chicago, Miami, Boston and San Diego.
New York City had the most coffee shops, coffee houses and cafes per capita, as well as the most affordable coffee destinations with a 4.5+ star rating per capita, according to WalletHub.
On a non-coffee related note, New York also had the most donut shops per capita, WalletHub’s report said.
