Did you get a chance to celebrate National Coffee Day on September 29th?  Do you love love love coffee and have to have it everyday?


NESCAFE Dolce Gusto actually conducted an online survey and had some interesting findings like the below:

  • Lattes before Love: 42% of coffee drinkers say that their last cup of coffee was more satisfying than their last “intimate experience”
  • The Real McSteamy: 59% of coffee drinkers agree that coffee drinkers are more attractive than non-coffee drinkers
  • Our Beverage BFF: 57% of coffee drinkers can’t imagine getting through at least one life experience without coffee – like starting a new job (34%), moving (25%), college (22%), having a child (15%) and getting married (15%)
  • Cup O’Smarts: On average, coffee drinkers think they gain 25 IQ points after they have a cup of coffee – and 14% of drinkers think they gain 55 to 99 points!


The NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research ( among 1,000 nationally representative U.S. adults ages 18+, between May 6th and May 14th, 2014, using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas have been set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the U.S. adult population 18+.
