How do Poles take their coffee?Central European Slavs are primarily drawn to coffee because of the taste. The leading reason in Poland is the flavor of the dark beverage. Moreover, outdoor coffee drinking is the norm, with a petrol station being a favorite consumption location for over 70 percent of people. Although chain cafés are also popular, they lose to different venues among Poles in every age group. Nearly every second Polish teenager likes to drink coffee in fast food chains, whereas older Poles have a tendency for visiting traditional restaurants.
Coffee chain wise, Starbucks is by far the most popular, with almost every fourth person in Poland showing their preference for the brand. The American coffee brewing giant’s popularity comes as no surprise, considering that it is also the largest coffee chain in the country. In 2019, Starbucks celebrated its ten-year anniversary in Poland. During this time, 73 Starbucks coffee houses were opened.
