This cool infographic from Mint.com shows that spending in coffee shops is up of late. Is this a sign of an improving economy? I don’t know. What I do know though is that I was pleased to see Kentucky is in one of the higher categories when it comes to coffee shop spending. Why does this please me? For some reason it just pleases me to have validation of what I have said for years: “Louisville is a coffee town.” The funny thing is that just two days ago I declared “I am on a budget and I’m a cutting back my coffee shop spending considerably. No more coffee shop meetings unless someone else is buying or I have a stack of Highland Coffee or Heine Brothers gift cards to work with.” Yeah, we’ll see how good I am with staying on a limited coffee shop budget. Despite the best of intentions I am weak when it comes to resisting coffee and coffee shops.
So are you fueling Louisville’s coffee economy? I know what my favorite coffee shops are but I’m curious to know which ones you love and why. Got a favorite? Drop it on us in the comments.
