During a survey held by the National Coffee Association in 2014, more than half of the respondents said they drink coffee when they need to wake up, while a minority of the respondents said they drink coffee when they are thirsty or want to have a healthy drink. The same survey found that consumers want to limit their coffee consumption for various reasons. The most common reason (for 47 percent of respondents) was to limit caffeine intake. Interestingly, 17 percent of the survey respondents were worried about the carbon footprint of the coffee they drink and 16 percent were concerned about the economic inequality for those who grow coffee.
