If you're flying out of O'Hare International Airport and you're desperate for a cup of coffee, you won't have to walk to far to get your caffeine fix.

According to a new report from Upgraded Points, a website that provides information on rewards and travel points for different credit cards, out of the 50 busiest airports in the U.S., O'Hare airport ranked as the airport with the most Starbucks locations.

According to the report, O'Hare has 14 Starbucks locations across the airport. Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas is a close second, with 12 Starbucks locations, and Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu came in third.

Here's the list of airports that Upgraded Points says has the most Starbucks locations overall:

  1. O'Hare International Airport, Chicago: 14 Starbucks locations
  2. Harry Reid International Airport, Las Vegas: 12 Starbucks locations
  3. Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Honolulu: 10 Starbucks locations
  4. Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte: 8 Starbucks locations
  5. George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston: 8 Starbucks locations

  8. Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles: 7 Starbucks Locations
  9. Newark Liberty International Airport, Newark: 7 Starbucks locations
  10. St. Louis Lambert International Airport, St. Louis: 7 Starbucks locations

But just because O'Hare has the most Starbucks locations doesn't mean it's the easiest airport to get a cup of coffee at. According to the study, based on the number of annual passengers per Starbucks location and the number of Starbucks locations per mile, the airport that gives you the best chance to grab a coffee before or after your flight would be at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas.

The airport that gives you the worst chance based on those same factors? San Francisco International Airport.
