Coffee Consumption in Canada


I have a researcher looking for any data or statistics on coffee consumption behaviour in Canada. Specifically it would be most helpful if he could break it down by urban vs. rural populations. Does anyone know of a survey that specifically includes coffee consumption in Canada? Or would I have to move from Stats Can into business/market research?


In the past it required moving into business/market research. 

I have, however, found, reference to the following study from the Canadian Community of Health Survey:

"Among people 50 and older, coffee was the most common beverage choice after water. About three-quarters of men and women drink coffee on any given day. As a result, more than 20% of men and 15% of women aged 31 to 70 exceeded the recommended maximum of 400 milligrams of caffeine per day."
