Methodology: Bundle data comes from the U.S. government, from 20 million anonymous and aggregated spending transactions from Visa and Mastercard holders, and third party data providers. Coffee shop spending was determined by looking at transactions at the following coffee shops during the second quarter of 2011: Dunkin' Donuts, Blue State Coffee, Caribou Coffee, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Cuppy's Coffee, Gimme Coffee, It's a Grind Coffee House, Jittery Joe's, Lavazza, Peet's Coffee and Tea, PJ's Coffee, Port City Java, Seattle's Best Coffee, Starbucks, Stumptown Coffee Roasters, Tully's Coffee. The data was normalized so the average U.S. city would be at 1.0 — anything beyond that would show spending that's greater than the national average. Cities included are in the top 100 in the U.S. by population. Starbucks per 10,000 people data from StateMaster.
