Katie Nauman named CMO of Petco.

Ahead of National Coffee Day on Wednesday, Sept. 29, WalletHub released a list of the 2021 Best Coffee Cities in America, ranking the 100 biggest cities in America by their “coffee lover-friendliness.” 
The list used metrics including the number of affordable coffee shops, coffee houses and cafés, the average price of a cappuccino, the number of adult coffee drinkers and more to determine which are the best coffee cities in the U.S.
According to the latest survey released by the National Coffee Association, 62% of Americans drink coffee every day, and the top coffee cities probably won’t surprise you.
Portland, Oregon, home of U.S. coffee culture, was ranked No. 1; Seattle, Washington, where the first Starbucks opened in 1971, came in at No. 3; and Honolulu, Hawaii, where Kona coffee is made, at No. 6.
Although none of its cities topped the list, Arizona is the second most caffeinated state in the U.S., according to a Zippia survey. Of the 100 cities ranked, seven were in Arizona.
Scottsdale was ranked the best city for Arizona coffee lovers, at No. 32 overall. Tucson and Chandler came in at No. 56 and 57, respectively. And despite being Arizona’s biggest city, Phoenix ranked in the bottom half at No. 65.
Scottsdale was also ranked fourth-highest in the nation for the average amount of money each household spends on coffee, but among the lowest cities for its percentage of adult coffee drinks. Along with Gilbert, it was also one of the five cities with the highest percentage of households that own a coffee maker.
Meanwhile, Glendale was one of the cities with the fewest highly-rated, affordable coffee shops and was home to the third-highest average cappuccino price in the U.S.
