jobs drink most coffeeBy Vivian Giang

If you can't start your work day without a cup of joe, you're not alone.

Out of the 4,700 workers who were included in a survey conducted by CareerBuilder and Dunkin' Donuts, 60 percent of them said that they drink at least two cups of coffee daily and nearly half admitted that their productivity would be affected without their daily java.

The results showed that scientists and lab technicians are the heaviest coffee drinkers, followed by marketing and public relations professionals, education administrators, editors and writers.

The survey also showed that workers in different industries prefer their coffee prepared differently. Those in law - judges and attorneys - like it black and bitter; those in hospitality like theirs with cream and sugar; editors and writers prefer a little flavor with their daily intake.

The survey also said that those in the Northeast needed more coffee than workers living in other areas.

Japanese coffee-lover and blogger Ryoko Iwata created the infographic below based on the survey's findings:

I'm surprised cops weren't on the list. I come from a law enforcement family and they all lived on black coffee. I'm a funeral director and we all drink vats of coffee, diet coke too.

As usual, professional drivers are left out of the list. We not only like our coffee, but sometimes require it. If you don't believe me, stop at a truckstop or travel center that's out of coffee.

Exactly what I was going to write. I know my husband who is a night driver has to drink a lot of coffee. I don't know any other profession where the employer can work you for 14 hours straight so coffee is imperative to function!
