Published

(Reuters) – Two-thirds of Americans drink coffee, and many gulp down their first cup within an hour of awakening, according to a survey released on Thursday.

On average, the 65 percent of Americans who drink coffee each consume an average of 13 cups of coffee per week, and three out of five agreed with the statement “I need a cup of coffee to start my day.”

Timed to coincide with “National Coffee Day” next Thursday, September 29, this month’s survey of 1,009 Americans, which had a margin of error of 3 percentage points, was commissioned by the 7-Eleven chain of convenience stores. The stores will be giving out free coffee that day from 7-11 am.

Among the findings, 28 percent of coffee drinkers had their first cup within 15 minutes of waking up and 68 percent within an hour, 57 percent added sugar or sweetener to their brew, and 54 percent agreed that “coffee makes me feel more like myself.”

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
