Seattle is regarded as the world center for coffee roasting and coffee supply chain management. People in Seattle consume more coffee than in any other North American city. One study stated that there are 35 coffeeshops per 100,000 residents and it is nearly impossible to walk past a single block in a commercial area in Seattle without walking past at least one coffee shop. Coffee drinkers can get coffee at a local sidewalk stand, parking lot, tiny coffee houses, big coffee houses, drive-through, and even through delivery.
