Arizona is ranked the 7th most Starbucks-obsessed state, according to new research.
With the U.S. having the largest coffee market worldwide and more than six times as many Starbucks locations as the whole of Europe, researchers at the price-tracking website Pricelisto.com crunched the numbers to see which state is the most Starbucks-obsessed.
Researchers calculated the number of Starbucks locations across each state and ranked them proportionally according to the number of residents per store.
Oregon tops the table as the most Starbucks-obsessed state in the country. Residents looking to get their morning caffeine fix have the choice of 401 branches, which means there is one store per 10,450 people in the state, the highest rate in the country.
Following closely behind is Washington state, ranked second most Starbucks-obsessed state. The state has 711 Starbucks locations, meaning there is one store per 10,710 residents.
The state ranked as the third most obsessed with Starbucks is Nevada. Nevada has a total of 276 locations across the state (making up 1.74% of the US total), meaning there is one store per 10,994 residents.
Colorado came fourth on the list of states most obsessed with Starbucks. It has the ninth-highest number of Starbucks stores in the US with 493, this makes up 3.09% of all Starbucks locations in America. There is one Starbucks store per 11,552 residents in the state.
Despite having the highest number of Starbucks locations in the US at 3,087, California ranked number five on the list. The state makes up 19.3% of all Starbucks stores in the country and has one Starbucks location per 12,814 California residents.
Even though Hawaiian Starbucks stores make up just 0.7% of the total number of stores in the country, Hawaii ranks sixth on the list. The population of the state is 1,440,196, meaning there is one Starbucks store per 12,858 residents.
Arizona is the seventh most Starbucks-obsessed state in the US. It has the sixth-highest number of stores out of any state and makes up 3.47% of all Starbucks stores in the country. With a population of 7,171,646, Arizona has one store per 12,945 residents.

A spokesperson for Pricelisto.com says: “America has the largest coffee market worldwide and this is clearly reflected in the number of Starbucks stores across the country.
To put it into perspective, we calculated 15,852 Starbucks stores across the US, whilst there are just over 2,500 stores throughout Europe. The sheer difference in these numbers shows the extreme demand for Starbucks in America.”
