International Coffee Day 2019: History And Significance
Boldsky | 1st Oct, 2019 03:08 PM

Mornings are incomplete without drinking a cup of coffee and its aroma is enough to charge you up and jumpstart your day. Every year on 1 October, International Coffee Day is celebrated to acknowledge the farmers, roasters, baristas, and coffee shop owners, etc. who work hard to create and serve the beverage in its consumable form.

India is the only country that grows all varieties of coffee, that possess an exotic taste and a fine aroma. In India, the largest producer of coffee is Karnataka which accounted for 74% of the total production of coffee during 2017-2018. Every day 3 billion cups of coffee are consumed all over the world, a number which continues to rise.

History Of International Coffee Day

The International Coffee Organization launched its first official International Coffee Day in Milan on 1 October 2015. However, the exact origin of International Coffee Day is unknown.

Significance Of International Coffee Day

The day highlights the necessity of fair-trade coffee and its main objective is to raise public awareness of the working conditions of coffee farmers. The day is also aimed at strengthening the position of coffee sustainability.

Despite the growing demand for coffee, producers receive prices more than 30% below the average in the last ten years, thus threatening the livelihoods of coffee farmers and their families. Therefore, the main objective behind celebrating International Coffee Day is to help the farmers attain a fair living standard.
