These North Texas cities rank among America’s best coffee cities

The study used 12 criteria, including the number of coffee shops per capita.

Six North Texas cities made WalletHub.com’s 2021 list of of the 100 best coffee cities in the nation.

Dallas came in 30th place and Plano in 34th in the new study by WalletHub.com, a personal finance website. Fort Worth ranked 40th and Arlington was 63rd.

Other North Texas cities that made the list were Irving at 73rd and Garland at 78th.

The ranking used 12 data points including the number of coffee shops, coffee houses and cafés per capita and the average price per pack of coffee. Other factors included were average spending on coffee per household, average price of a cappuccino, and the share of households that own coffee makers, and coffee-centric events.

The study was released the week of National Coffee Day, which is Wednesday. International Coffee Day takes place Friday. The Specialty Coffee Association of America values the U.S. coffee market at $48 billion. That indicates how much Americans are willing to spend on coffee and “signals business potential to aspiring entrepreneurs,” WalletHub.com noted.

Under WalletHub’s study, the top 10 cities in the nation were:

  • Portland, Ore.
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • Orlando, Fla.
  • Pittsburgh
  • Honolulu
  • Tampa, Fla.
  • Miami
  • San Diego
  • Boston

WalletHub also compiled a list of coffee retailers extending special savings in honor of National Coffee Day on Wednesday. The list is available here.
