While Italy and Morocco come to mind when one thinks of good coffee, Tassimo have taken it upon themselves to be the harbingers of a coming caffeine war between New York City and London. Tassimo has analysed the caffeine consumption habits of the Big Smoke and the Big Apple, providing tidbits of information about how much money New Yorkers and Londoners spend on coffee, as well as how many coffee shops caffeinate the streets every day.

Who do you think will win the coffee wars of 2014?
