With International Coffee Day coming up this Saturday, September 29th, Dunkin’ Donuts and CareerBuilder surveyed the United States workforce to see which profession rely on coffee consumption the most.
Ranking at number one are Food Preparation and Service Workers with Scientists following at number two. At number five are Editors, Writers and Media Workers and at number eight are Teachers and Instructors for kindergarten to grade 12. According to a recent article in the Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, coffee is thought to be able to help reduce pain since caffeine blocks adenosine, “a brain chemical involved in pain processing.” This in turn makes employees less likely to immediately feel or realize certain early morning pains they’re experiencing caused by slouchy backs or curled over shoulders.
Unfortunately, International Coffee Day is on Saturday so there is no way we can tell our boss we need an extra coffee break to increase out ‘productivity.’
