MILAN – Millennials are less likely to drink coffee than their parents. But when they do, it’s not at home.

A New research from Alliance Bernstein shows that just under half of young adults (drank coffee in the past day, with a huge chunk of them opting for away-from-home coffee rather than home-brewed joe.

Forty-eight per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds consumed coffee in the past day, compared to 58% of older consumers, according to the survey.

Forty-two percent of the youngest cohort drank coffee away-from-home, compared to 31% among older groups, reported Business Insider.
