Coffee Addicts Start Young

The Zagat survey says the most popular age group to begin drinking coffee is age 15 to 19. You're not supposed to drink alcohol at that age, but you can start a coffee addiction! One in five coffee drinkers start the habit between the age of 10-14. That's crazy! Oh wait. I did that too.
