Calling All Coffee Lovers: September 29th Is National Coffee Day!

By

National Coffee Day: I Love CoffeeAttention coffee lovers! Today, September 29th is your special day! It's National Coffee Day!  National Coffee Day  happens to be one of my two most favorite "food related" days of the year (the other being World Chocolate Day).

 

For all the "coffee-holics" out there (like me), what a great excuse to go out and celebrate with an extra cup or two of coffee! And if you know some truly serious coffee lovers, why not surprise them a free e-card to celebrate National Coffee day? 

 

 

Facts About Coffee:

 

  • More than 400 BILLION cups of coffee are consumed annually worldwide! (Have you ever wondered... how  they count those cups?)

  • Coffee was discovered in Ethiopia around 800 AD.

  • As a commodity, coffee is second only to oil.

  • 83% of Americans drink coffee regularly according to The National Coffee Association. 54% drink coffee every day. Some 150 million Americans drink three cups of coffee every day. (I know I do my share to contribute to these statistics.)

  • 40% of the world's coffee is produced in Brazil.

  • Coffee beans are not actually beans, but fruit pits.


 

Coffee "Freebies" On National Coffee Day:

Brewing The Perfect Cup Of Coffee:

 

It seems to be a never-ending debate amongst coffee lovers... how to best brew a cup of coffee. I grew up drinking coffee that was percolated on a stove top (and still think that's the tastiest coffee I ever drank). Unfortunately my mother's percolating skills did not pass down to me. Over the years I've tried all the methods--percolating, automatic drip machines, manual drip, coffee presses. When we built our home in 2006, I installed a built-in Miele coffeemaker and have never looked back. There's just nothing like a freshly brewed cup each and every time. The major drawback to this machine (besides how expensive it is) is  that you can't use flavored beans in it. So when the mood strikes me for a flavored cup of coffee, I go back to my automatic drip machine.

 

Whatever your favorite method of preparing coffee might be, here's information on how to brew that perfect cup of java:

 

 


 

Cooking With Coffee:

 

Being the "coffee-holic" that I am, I love absolutely anything coffee-flavored. So if you're like me, here are some resources for great recipes using coffee:

 

 


 

Coffee Quotes:

 

Did you know there are a tons of quotes about coffee?  Two of my favorite quotes, which totally define my personal relationship with coffee, are:

 

"Coffee is a language unto itself." ... Jackie Chan

"I can't imagine a day without coffee! I can't imagine!" ... Howard Schultz

It's National Coffee Day today... so whether you're a "coffee-holic" like myself, or not, why not go out and celebrate the day with a great cup of coffee! (And by the way, if you miss celebrating National Coffee Day today, you can make up for it on January 20th when "coffee-holics" observe National Coffee Break Day.)

Lynnea Miller good morning, Lynnea... a good cup of Kona is hard to beat! I'm not much of tea drinker, myself, unless I'm where I know I won't get a decent cup of coffee.

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... there's virtually nothing I don't love about coffee... the aroma, the taste. I've had this love for coffee since I was a child even though no one would let me drink it then.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel good morning, Alexandra... I'm very fussy about my coffee, as well... although no one makes it for me, but me! Now that I'm in Russia it will be two weeks of tea as there's not much chance I'll find a really good cup of coffee.

Hi Nina,
I missed that yesterday was Coffee Day but I do celebrate it every day. I love all the info you provided about coffee.  One of the most interesting facts was that coffee is second to oil as a commodity.  It makes sense, though, now that I think about it.
