Shippo Reveals Most-caffeinated Cities for National Coffee Day

By: Shippo | September 28, 2018

At Shippo, we track everything—the number of orders processed on our shipping platform, what service levels and carriers are used, the order value of purchases, what types of e-commerce businesses are growing exponentially, and much more. This year, for National Coffee Day we poured over our 2018 data stacks to figure out which cities love sipping coffee the most, based on order information from online coffee retailers that use Shippo.

Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day making the United States the leading consumer of coffee in the world. Our user data suggests that more coffee roasters are buzzed to be moving online. This year, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York lead in placing orders from online coffee retailers.

“The steep and recent rise in online purchases of coffee for the home is a strong indicator that the market is just warming up”, says Matthew Berk, CEO of Bean Box and Shippo customer. “While our home city of Seattle is famous for its love of coffee (as well as more coffee shops per capita than anywhere else in the U.S.), customers nationwide are getting ever more comfortable with products and services being delivered directly to their doorstep. In the next 2-5 years, the appetite for buying coffee online is going to create the next big wave in coffee.”
