Portlanders Like Their Coffee Almost As Much As They Like To Sleep

Portland is known for great coffee, but new data shows that we like our beds a little more than our daily cup of joe.

According to data collected by the alarm clock app, Sleep Cycle, Portlanders spend the most amount of time in bed when compared to other major U.S. cities.

The app monitors movement during the night to wake users when they’re in the lightest sleep phase.

On average, Rose City residents are getting about seven hours and nine minutes of shut eye each night — that’s nearly a half hour longer than Miamians, who get the least amount of sleep.

Our northern neighbors in Seattle come in at No. 4, getting about five minutes less sleep than Portland.

But all that sleep isn’t enough to curb our coffee addictions. Sleep Cycle found that Portland is also No. 2 in coffee consumption nationwide, behind Boston. We’re trailed by other fast-paced metros like Washington, D.C., Chicago and New York, and we’re the only Northwest city in the ranking.

The app also found that Portlanders have the fourth earliest bedtime nationwide and get the eighth “best” sleep in America.
