Which Coffee Shop Chain Dominates Your State?

Is there any nation more obsessed with its morning coffee ritual than the United States? Once you admit to yourself that you’re a caffeine addict (you probably are), check out this map of American coffee chains so you know exactly who is profiting off your problem. Not surprisingly, Starbucks (the little green dots) have vomited all over the map, but that doesn’t mean it dominates every region. Dunkin Donuts and Tim Hortons take over a huge chunk of the country too. The map brings up a couple questions, though. West Coast, how are you surviving without the amazingness that is Dunkin Donuts? What on earth are Dutch Brothers and BLENZ? I’ve never heard of them. Are they better than Starbucks (I’m guessing yes)? Personally, Caribou Coffee is my favorite, though I’m not from Minnesota. For a closer look, you can see maps of individual companies here. [Gizmodo, Flowing Data]
