About Coffee Holidays

If you are a coffee lover (and who isn’t?) then you might very well be interested in learning about coffee holidays. Coffee is, without a doubt, the world’s most popular drink. We consume this beverage by the gallon on a weekly basis, gather at coffee houses to chat and do school work, wake up and brew a pot as soon as we get out of bed, and use coffee to keep going during a long and stressful day. It is no wonder, then, that many countries across the globe have holidays to celebrate coffee. This article will tell you about coffee holidays around the world. Who knows? Maybe you will participate in one someday!

Learning About Coffee Holidays in North and South America

Coffee is a wonderful beverage, and for many, growing it is a good way to make a living. Several countries in the Western Hemisphere depend on coffee as one of their main exports and crops, so it is natural that they celebrate this drink and plant with a holiday. In Brazil, for example, National Coffee Day is May 24th. In Costa Rica, the day for celebrating coffee is September 12th. In the United States, National Coffee Month is August, and the National Coffee Day is July 24th. On these days, people who are coffee fans gather and drink – what else? – coffee and enjoy the richness and splendor of this marvelous beverage. If you are traveling through the Western Hemisphere on these days, make sure to pack a mug.

Learning About Coffee Holidays Elsewhere

Coffee is also widely celebrated elsewhere and recognized for the marvelous contributions it gives to millions of people worldwide. In Japan, the first of October is the official Coffee Day. This is a time at which many coffee producers and distributors have sales and discounts on their products to celebrate coffee. In Ireland, September 19th is National Coffee Day. They also celebrate a beverage that was invented in Ireland – Irish coffee. Indeed, the fourth week n January is National Irish Coffee Week.

Learning About Coffee Holidays: Ways to Celebrate

If you want to get in on the fun and toast the creation of coffee in your own way, there are a few things that you could do. For example, February 17th is National Café Au Lait Day. On this day, drink a café au lait – which is basically strong coffee or espresso with steamed milk. You can also throw a coffee party. Just invite your friends over and give them a wide selection of flavored coffee to choose from, complete with chocolate and caramel sauce, whipped cream, and other tasty additives so that each person can customize their own cup of coffee. You can also bake foods, believe it or not. Coffee cake is delicious and can be baked in a variety of ways. It would make a great snack for your Coffee Day celebrations. Most importantly, do not be afraid to experiment and try something different. You never know; you just may like your new beverage.

Now you know all about coffee holidays in the world. You also have a few ideas for your own Coffee Day festivities. All that is left is to open up a pack of coffee, brew it, pour it into a mug, sit back, and enjoy the coffee!
