As the temperatures begin to decrease towards the end of November, the dilemma arises once again: hot or iced coffee in the winter season? Some believe that hot coffee should be drunk in the winter and iced coffee should be reserved for the warmer seasons. However, many students at Oakdale High School say that they prefer iced coffee, no matter the time of year. 

 

According to the National Library of Medicine, 75% of the United States population consumes coffee. There are over 120 varieties of coffee plants in the world and countless combinations of coffee drinks. So, the question of whether coffee drinks are more enjoyable during certain seasons comes about.

 

Freshman Mikayla Green discussed her insights, explaining, “I always prefer iced coffee no matter the weather.” 

 

Additionally, Green believes teenagers are more likely to drink iced coffee than adults, considering the current popularity surrounding iced lattes. Corporations such as Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts are favored among younger generations, especially high school students. 

 

Adding on, art teacher Maggie George enjoys both hot and iced coffee, no matter the weather. George continued, “I drink iced and hot coffee every single day. I drink the hot coffee in the morning, and then I take the iced coffee to work with me.” However, George later shared that she “will always choose iced over hot coffee. Any day.”

 

Though iced coffee has spiked in popularity over the past few years, it is undeniable that hot coffee has been a classic for decades. “I’ve always favored hot coffee. On a cold winter day, there’s nothing I want more than a hot cup of coffee,” teacher Heather Corridon shared. She argued that hot coffee feels cozier during the cold weather and that she is surprised people feel any other way.

 

Even though people have a tough time agreeing on what type of coffee is better, it is inarguable that coffee itself is one of the most superior drinks of the winter season. Hot or cold, flavored or bold, 10 billion kilograms of coffee are consumed each year, and that number grows each year.
