International Coffee Day 2021: Date, history and significance

Coffee is one of the most loved beverages and happens to be the favourite of millions. Most of us find it really tough to kick start our day without a cup of hot coffee. So, it is not at all surprising that we dedicate an entire day to this beverage.

Every year on October 1, International Coffee Day is observed to celebrate and promote coffee as a beverage. This day is also celebrated to educate people about the benefits, history and popularity of coffee. On this special day, people celebrate and recognise the hard work and efforts of those who are associated with the coffee industry. From Cappuccino to Double Espresso, a true coffee lover knows there are different types of coffee and the list is countless.

International Coffee Day: History

In 2014, the International Coffee Organisation (ICO) decided to dedicate International Coffee Day to all coffee lovers. But it was in 2015 that the ICO launched the first official Coffee Day in Milan. However, different countries in the world celebrate their own national coffee days at different dates throughout the year.

The term ‘International Coffee Day’ was first used by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum during a press conference in 2009 to announce the first New Orleans Coffee Festival. Many business establishments offer discounted drinks, freebies, coupons and organise social media campaigns to promote the beverage on this day.

The ICO first celebrated International Coffee Day in China in 1997 and Taiwan celebrated it for the first time in 2009. In Nepal, International Coffee Day was first observed on November 17, 2005.

International Coffee Day: Significance

The main aim of International Coffee Day is to promote the fair trade of coffee and educate people about the plight of coffee growers across the globe. The day is dedicated to appreciate millions of farmers who go an extra mile to produce coffee for us. People celebrate this day by gaining knowledge about the history of this aromatic crop, try various types of coffee and dishes made out of its beans and organise various events in coffee shops and chain outlets.
