Which profession drinks the most coffee? You probably think it’s yours. And if you’re a journalist or media staffer, hoist a mug in your own honor, because you’re right.
According to a survey of professionals conducted by the U.K.-based PR company Pressat, journalists down more cups of joe — upward of four cups a day — than those working in any other profession. Ink-stained wretches are also drenched with java. Blame the long days, late nights and pressing deadlines.
Police officers and teachers, both with high-stress jobs as well, were also found to be big consumers of caffeine, coming in second and third, respectively, on Pressat’s list of the 10 top professions for coffee drinking.
