Is your week dragging already? Is it time for a coffee break or a run to your favorite shop? If you look at the stats from across the globe, you're not alone. 

While there's often a great debate about which drink is healthiest for you, tea versus coffee, statistics show that we're a coffee-lovin' globe. Just think of this: Every second, there are more than 28,000 cups of coffee being consumed worldwide. And while you sip on your iced coffee for an hour, there are more than 100 million cups of coffee finished. (Imagine the amount of caffeine in that much coffee.)

The most recent statistics from 2011 show which countries are drinking the most coffee, and it's not who you might think it is. Despite a global appreciation for a good cup of coffee, from America to Italy, Greece to Austrailia, it's actually  Finland who drinks the most. coffee, with an average of 4.1 cups of coffee per day. Americans' coffee habit, in comparison, looks pretty reasonable. 

Check out the infographic from Statista to learn more about who's drinking coffee — we can always use more of an excuse to run out for a coffee.
