The date of October 1, 2015 will be one for the history books and everyone around the world will be taking part, celebrating the inaugural International Coffee Day.
National coffee days are nothing new, numerous countries throughout the world select a day and use it as an occasion to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage. In March, 2014, the concept for a well-unified International Coffee Day was first brought forth to International Coffee Organization member countries in an effort to bring the global coffee industry together.
A decision was then made by the ICO to hold an annual world-wide celebration of all things coffee and the kickoff festivities are taking place in Milan, Italy as part of Expo 2015. Per the organization’s request, the day will be focused around the concept of “caffè sospeso,” in which coffee drinkers buy coffee for strangers in need.
International Coffee Day is recognized by the 75 Member States of the International Coffee Organization as well as dozens of associations and businesses as they celebrate coffee’s journey of diversity, quality and passion.
