Cup of Coffee

Since the days of settlers in America and right here in Michigan, people have been drinking coffee.

The coffee cup or the way the coffee is brewed may have changed over hundreds of years, the one thing that has not changed is people's love for the java. Some people have even made coffee a hobby and have become coffee snobs.

They say the best part of waking up is that first cup of coffee but how do people in Michigan prefer to have their coffee?

Top Five Ways Michiganders Prefer Their Coffee

I have to admit that I am not a coffee drinker but I grew up with one, my Dad. As long as I have known my dad there has been a cup of coffee either in his hand or nearby. He will drink it on a hot day in the middle of the summer but he keeps his coffee brew simple.

There are a million ways to have a coffee today and lots of places to get a good cup but what are the five favorite ways Michiganders enjoy their java? Here is some research that was provided by Betway who researched the coffee habits of all 50 states including Michigan.

#5  Cold Brew

Michiganders chose cold brew coffee as one of their favorites. There is a process involved in cold brew called steeping coffee grounds in water at cool temperatures for an extended period anywhere from 12 to 24 hours. A cup of cold brew can be 60% less acidic and bitter than hot brewed coffee.

#4 Black Coffee

Tried and true is black coffee. Black coffee is simply coffee with nothing added. The world has been drinking it that since the 15th century and Michiganders still love it that way today

#3 Cappuccino

The cappuccino slides into the number 3 choice for Michiganders. A cappuccino is an espresso-based coffee drink that is traditionally prepared with steamed milk foam. There are tons of variations that include cream instead of milk, non-dairy milk substitutes, and even flavors like cinnamon or chocolate.

#2 Filter Coffee

Filter coffee is the same concept as espresso. You pour hot water over coffee grounds, the water passes through the grounds, and a filter of some form then falls either into the pot or cup. The brewing process takes longer but coffee drinkers say the results are heavenly.

#1 Latte

The results are in, Michigander's favorite choice of coffee is a latte. A latte is a milk coffee that is made up of one or two shots of espresso, steamed milk, and a final layer of frothed milk on top.
