Report: Seattle not best city for coffee lovers in America -- or even in Washington

SEATTLE -- Aside from the rain, Seattle's caffeine-crazed reputation includes the notion that there's "a coffee shop on every corner."

While that might be mostly true, a new study out says there are a few cities in America that have more coffee-related businesses per capita than the Emerald City.

Apartment Guide says Seattle ranks 4th nationally at 1 coffee business per 2,308 residents, ahead of Portland (5th) at 1 per 2,322 people.

But that ranks behind San Francisco and -- drumroll -- Vancouver, Washington, which checks in at second place at a coffee shop for every 2,224 residents.

No. 1 on the list? Berkeley, California. Just 59 coffee shops and cafes in town, which is home to a main University of California campus, but good enough for one spot to get coffee for every 2,073 people.

By the way, Everett also made the Top 10 list at No. 9, and Washington was well represented in the Top 30, including Spokane (13th), Renton (15th), Tacoma (19th) and Bellevue (28th).
