Drinking Hot Coffee Is Cool

(NEW YORK) — No one ever saw the Fonz with a cup of coffee in his hand but perhaps the King of Cool was missing out on something.

At least that’s what a lot of New Zealanders think when 1,500 were asked by the survey company Canstar for their attitudes about drinking coffee.

Twenty percent of the respondents believe that sipping coffee makes them appear more sophisticated.

What’s more, a third of millennials, those 18-to-34, say they look cooler when holding a cup of coffee.

There also appears to be a certain snobbery among a small group of coffee drinkers as 12 percent will actually judge a person by the brew they consume.

Overall, 52 percent admit that they’ll go out of their way for a good cup of joe and yeah, there are Starbucks in New Zealand.
