Incorrect Statistic in “Consumption” Section[edit]

In the “Consumption” section, the first sentence states “ Over 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the world daily which amounts to 2.5 cups of coffee consumed per person on average.” The referenced source at the end of the paragraph does not contain this information, and in any case the math is incorrect. If 2.25 billion cups are consumed daily in the world, by a global population of around 8 billion, that would average to 0.28 cups per person. Additionally, 2.25 billion cups per day is a dubious figure that is not supported by a source. I think this sentence should be removed or at least reworded (if the source can be found that supports a 2.25 billion cups per day figure). 2A01:CB1A:4044:C034:C8F:643D:43EA:22EF (talk) 18:57, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Agree and revised. Zefr (talk) 19:22, 25 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Coffee sales =/= popularity[edit]

Opening paragraph “coffee is the most popular hot drink in the world” - links to a 2022 source that states coffee has the biggest market share of hot drink sales.

Conflating sales/revenue and overall popularity is possibly misleading and doesn’t take into account other factors, for example units consumed or population of coffee drinkers. There might be other data on overall consumption that is contrary to the statement.

This sentence could be reworded to something like: “coffee is the hot drink with the highest grossing sales in the world” (talk) 02:31, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Agreed, although revised differently. Zefr (talk) 02:39, 30 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
