According to a Kelton Global national survey[1], 82% of locals in Kansas (in particular Kansas City) say that they need a good cup of Joe to start their day off right. 41% of them say that need a morning coffee more than eating breakfast! However, 1/3 of coffee brewers in Kansas (in particular Kansas City) admit that they do not use the proper amount of grounds when they make java. 53% of them are willing to give up something for a year in exchange for a self-made, perfect cup of coffee every day – including exercising (16%), dessert (15%), and an hour of sleep every night (14%)!
