It’s International Coffee Day!!!!!

This is one celebration I can get behind anytime of day! My first coffee experience was in my baby bottle. I’m sure it was a dab but gramps said I had to have what he was drinking. I believe it knowing how close we were.

Where did it all start?

International Coffee Day is an occasion that is used to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage, with events now occurring in places across the world. The first official date was 1 October 2015, as agreed by then International Coffee Organization and was launched in Milan. This day is also used to promote fair trade coffee and to raise awareness for the plight of the coffee growers. On this day, many businesses offer free or discounted cups of coffee. Some businesses share coupons and special deals with their loyal followers via social networking. Some greeting card companies sell National Coffee Day greeting cards as well as free e-cards.

Here’s a hot or cold toast of coffee to you! Here’s to the farmers who keep us going each and every day.

  1. Happy International Coffee Day Mel! I’m with you – this is one day I can definitely get behind. My Hubby says I’m a professional coffee drinker lol. I don’t drink that much; usually no more than 3 cups max in a day, but I sure do love it! Now I want a mocha from Starbucks….
