Coffee Culture is Inextricably tied to Economic Development

I know this is true. You know this is true. But I need more than anecdotal evidence to prove it. I need facts. I need data. What would be a convincing statistic? The number of independent coffee houses a metropolitan area has, as compared to its year-on-year economic growth increase? Maybe this goes back to defining coffee culture. Does anyone know Richard Florida? Isn't this something he should be studying? Maybe I should call him...

Perhaps you could recruit some Weatherhead School grad students to do some studies. :-)

As George Nemeth posted to BFD, you should get in touch with Rebecca Ryan at Next Generation Consulting - this probably is one of her metrics... rr@nextgenerationconsulting.com

I would like to know how the study would fare. The outcome would be something to look forward to especially by coffee lovers.
