So imagine my surprise when I saw that Seattle was booted off the top of the coffee-loving towns list for 2023.

Two other major cities managed to push Seattle out of the top spot and the top spot is a surprising leap to #1. 


To determine the best local coffee scenes in America, our friends at WalletHub compared the 100 largest cities across 12 key indicators of a strong coffee culture. The data set ranges from coffee shops, coffee houses, and cafés per capita to the average price per pack of coffee.


Seattle still sails in at #3, not a bad showing but for being the birthplace of Starbucks, that has to hurt a bit. It should come as no surprise that Portland Oregon was ranked #2 as the best city for a coffee lover.

San Francisco gets to wear the crown at #1 but you never know, Seattle could snatch it back at any time. You can read more from Wallethub's survey here.
