Coffee Drinking Habits at SMHS

18 million dollars were spent on coffee this year, with a total of 100 million daily coffee drinkers. So, every one in three people drink coffee daily, including SMHS bearcats.

There are numerous benefits of coffee. Coffee is filled with antioxidant plants like  flavonoids, and it reduces the risk for Type two Diabetes and blood sugar management a study confirmed by Journal of the American Medical Association. Coffee can also boost the health of your liver. Surprisingly, Coffee provides neurological health moderate coffee drinking can help fight against Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimers, and caffeine can reduce the risk of getting skin cancer.

But how unhealthy is coffee? People who have a regular caffeine intake can experience jitteriness, headaches, or irritability. If you drink too much coffee a day, it could cause sleep apnea, preventing your body from sleep, and not getting the rest it needs.

I took a survey at SMHS and of the 50 people I interviewed 28 people said they drink coffee on a regular basis, and over 60% of them said they drank coffee daily.

Some are skeptical about the benefits and taste of coffee. “I’m not a huge fan of coffee, but I see people drinking it all around me I don’t get it, coffee is really bitter why do people like it so much?” said John Scanlon, freshman. “I wish I could drink coffee,” said Brandon Huey, freshman.

On the other hand, there are those who survive on coffee. “I drink coffee everyday, like I live on Starbucks to wake me up in the morning,” said Shay Roupe, freshman. “I drink coffee everyday that’s why I’m really short,” said Orapin Senamuen, sophomore.

There are some who occasionally consume coffee. “I drink coffee frequently but I don’t consider myself to be a major coffee drinker like I don’t drink it everyday or anything,” said Sadhbh Buggle Flynn, senior. “Those Mocha Starbucks things are amazing, but I don’t drink them on a regular basis,” said Gene Kapel, freshman. “I drink coffee a few times a week,” said Alyssa Sims, freshman.

Most bearcats enjoy coffee and consider it a fundamental part of their life. Without coffee how would one out of three bearcats wake up in the morning?
