International Coffee Day – 1 October
Every year, on 1 October, we celebrate International Coffee Day.
This day is an occasion that is used to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage. This day is also used to promote fair trade coffee and to raise awareness for the issues that coffee growers face.
The International Coffee Organization agreed to celebrate this day for the first time on 1 October 2015. And they launched it in Milan, Italy.
Coffee on International Coffee Day
Coffee is a drink made from roasted coffee beans. These beans are the seeds of berries of certain species of the Coffea plant. Coffee (the drink) is darkly coloured, bitter, and slightly acidic. It has high amounts of caffeine, which is a kind of chemical that can relieve or prevent drowsiness and improves cognitive (thinking) performance. However, too much of it is not beneficial.
Today, coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world and you can drink it in a number of ways. And especially with sugar and milk. While hot coffee is the most common, many people also like to drink it chilled or with ice. Moreover, many people also like to put coffee in desserts such as cake or chocolate.
Coffee is grown in over 70 countries and Brazil is the largest coffee producer in the world. However, despite its popularity, many growers of coffee live in poverty. Many forests are also cut down to grow coffee. So, International Coffee Day promotes awareness of all these issues.
