Hey Joe, Who Drinks the Most Coffee?

In a survey by Dunkin' Donuts and CareerBuilder, almost half (46 percent) of the workforce in the U.S. say that they are less productive without coffee and slightly more than that (61 percent) say that they drink two or more cups a day. 

The survey also identified the jobs where coffee consumption is highest.  The results are:

10. Financial Professional: No surprises here. Dealing with other people's money is almost as stressful, if not more, as dealing with your own.

9. Social Worker: High stress and low pay means a best buddy named Joe, as in Cup 'o Joe. 

8. Professor: Dealing with freshmen requires a lot of coffee, apparently. Professors are some of the most-caffeinated professionals. 

7. Food Preparer: It makes sense for those who work in the kitchen to drink coffee.  Location, location, location...that's where the coffee is, right?

6. Physician: Next time you visit your doctor, check to see if he or she is extra-energized. Chances are, there was some coffee involved.

5. Healthcare Administrator: Even more caffeinated than doctors, believe it or not. 

4. Editor/WriterType, type, type. Sip, sip, sip. Coffee is better than the drinking addictions some noted writers have had. Ernest Hemingway, I'm looking at you. 

3. Education Administrator: Oddly, education administrator, not teacher, made the top 10. 

2. Marketing/Public Relations Professional: You're always on, always dealing with a crisis and, apparently, always drinking coffee. 

1. Scientist/Lab Technician: Long hours, bright lights -- who wouldn't need coffee?
