Caffeine Consumption

We get about one-third of our daily caffeine hit away from home, according to dietary data collected by the federal government--from coffee shops, Coke machines, fast-food restaurants, and so on.

Men aged 20 to 29 get a larger share of their caffeine away from home (55 percent) than any other segment of the population. In contrast, only 38 percent of the caffeine consumption of their female counterparts occurs away from home.
