Back of the envelope calculation: Coffee edition
One of the things I remember hearing when I moved to Carrboro was that the tiny town of Carrboro had a higher human-to-coffee-shop ratio than Seattle. There are 35 coffee shops per 100,000 residents in Seattle. This reduces to 0.00035 coffee shops per human. In Carrboro, I would say we have 6 coffee shops (Johnny’s, Open Eye, Looking Glass, Weaver St., Miel Bon Bon, Jesse’s) and a population of 16,782. This amounts to 0.000357 coffee shops per human. According to my highly technical back of the envelope calculation, Carrboro does have more coffee shops per person than Seattle, seven millionths more coffee shop per person to be exact.
