Another curious fact related to coffee consumption is that 85% of professionals stated that they drank up to 3 cups of coffee a day. Many recognized a certain level of dependency when considering that their work performance would be affected if they didn't take it. And finally, although we might think otherwise, women drink 5% less coffee than men. Focusing on the data obtained in Spain, 53% state that they ask for coffee with milk, 24.7% "cut" or spotted (with a drop of milk) and 22.5% black coffee or espresso.

Of course, Spanish workers who drink coffee in the office usually accompany it of some type of food such as cookies, cereals or pastries.

The most common time for the coffee break is in the morning, always outside of breakfast time, although there is another part that prefers it after eat. Regardless of the type of coffee chosen, what does not change is the time used to consume it and it is that the average is 19.3 minutes so it is clear which is considered as a moment of social interaction.
