The more stressful the job, the more coffee you drink, a survey by Pressat found.

Of the 10,000 people questioned, 85 percent said they drink at least three cups per day.

About 70 percent of people said their work would be affected if they didn’t have their daily cup.

Journalists and media staff drink the most coffee, according to the survey, followed by police officers, teachers, plumbers and trade workers, then nurses.

Men are technically the bigger coffee drinkers, but they consume only five percent more than women.
