Irish people think drinking coffee has a positive effect on their sex lives
We're not only a nation of tea drinkers...
A new survey has found that we're quite addicted to our coffee in Ireland, with 62 percent of the population enjoying the beverage on a daily basis.
In fact, 63 percent of those have at least two cups per day.
Some people even think that drinking coffee affects their libido, with 19 percent of coffee drinkers believing it has a positive effect on their sex life. However, 9.7 percent think the opposite, saying it has a negative impact.
The survey was carried out by DID Electrical and saw that, as a nation, our coffee order of choice is an americano with 33 percent of respondents choosing it as their go-to.
However, there is a difference between the older and younger generation. 18-24-year olds prefer a cappuccino to an americano, while 25-34s place the cappuccino and americano neck and neck, with each drink getting 24 percent of the vote in that group.
We also spend quite a lot on coffee over a year; of those who answered, 27 percent buy at least 3 takeaway coffees per week, which adds up to approximately €468 per year. On the higher end of the scale, 4 percent buy 9 or more coffees per week, spending an estimated €1,404 on takeaway coffees in 12 months.
54 percent of us also think that having a coffee in the morning is super important and we wouldn't be able to probably begin our day without one.
