With so many cafes and restaurants closing permanently or temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are making food and drinks at home more often than they were before, especially coffee. Our friends at Starbucks shared the results of a recent survey done by YouGov on behalf of Nestlé. It was conducted online between April 28 and April 29 and was based on answers from 1,443 American adults. Here are some of the survey’s most interesting trends in at-home coffee during coronavirus quarantine.
The survey found that half of American adults aged 18 and over are drinking coffee at least once every day.
Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed said that they have perfected the art of coffee-making at home.
As important as it is to save money during quarantine and as cost-efficient as homemade coffee can be, one-third of people said they just aren’t able to replicate the freshness of the coffee they buy at a cafe or coffee shop. Millennials felt this even more so, with 51% saying they wish their homemade coffee was as fresh as what they’re used to from their favorite coffee shops.
Instead of using store-bought creamers, try making your own sweet, healthy creamer at home out of almond milk and dates.
While you may be tempted to make espresso due to its strong reputation, one serving of espresso, or 1 ounce, has just under 64 milligrams of caffeine, while a serving of brewed coffee, or eight ounces, has 96 milligrams. And that’s just one of many things you may not have known about coffee.
