Coffee may help slow effects of aging
Coffee lovers, your day is here.
Friday is National Coffee Day, and there are several places where you can get a freebie or discount on a cup of joe.
From Dunkin’ Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Peet’s and more, several companies are taking part in the event.
In honor of the day, a national credit report site ranked the best U.S. cities to get coffee. Sacramento is one of 100 cities that made WalletHub’s Best Coffee Cities in America list.
With a total score of 39.12, Sacramento ranks 31st on the survey. Among California cities, the capital city was ninth. San Francisco led the state and was No. 3 overall.
Seattle, the home of Starbucks, tops the list, with fellow Pacific Northwest city Portland, Ore., a spot behind.
Sacramento’s rating was based on 14 factors. While scoring high in presence of coffee-centric events (16th), the average price per pack of coffee here is $5.82, which is 82nd in the nation.
WalletHub used data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Yelp and Meetup, among others, to compile its survey.
