A Day to Celebrate Coffee!
Yes, I know, isn't EVERY day Coffee Day? But October 1st is International Coffee Day - a day for everyone around the world to celebrate and enjoy our favo(u)rite beverage.
International Coffee Day was established this year by the International Coffee Organization. October 1, 2015 being the first international day to celebrate coffee, it may be confused with some National Coffee Days, especially those celebrated on September 29th.
International Coffee Day is a day to both celebrate coffee and to acknowledge the hardworking farmers who bring our fave elixir to market. Countries that helped to establish International Coffee Day are both coffee drinking (importing) countries like Canada and the USA and coffee producing (exporting) countries.
The list of Coffee Day partners include some countries that I wouldn’t have expected - like Liberia and Philippines. And Timor-Leste: that's a country? My bad, I didn't know that's the name for East Timor now that it's independent. Regardless, I bet Timor-Leste produces some amazing coffee!
