Stewert Lee Allen once said, “I think we all pray to the first cup of the day. It’s a silent prayer, sung while the mind is still foggy and blue. “O Magic Cup,” it might go, “carry me above the traffic jam. Keep me civil in the subway. And forgive my employer, as you forgive me. Amen.”
According to this infographic from CareerBuilder and Dunkin’ Donuts, 46% of all U.S. workers think they are less productive without coffee and 61% of workers have to drink two or more cups of coffee to get through the day.
