National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day National Coffee Day this year (2014) is September 29th.  This day of recognition is to give inspiration to celebration and enjoyment of the popular beverage and to promote fair trade coffee and to increase awareness for the betterment of coffee growers.

National Coffee day is observed annually on September 29th as well as in other countries worldwide.

Many businesses will offer free or discounted cups of coffee, even sharing some coupons and special deals as part of the national coffee day celebrations.

The “Japan Coffee Association” were the ones that promoted International Coffee Day, and celebrated the day for the first time in Japan in 1983. The term “International Coffee Day” was first used by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum (New Orleans) during a press conference held on October 3, 2009 aiming at ‘International Coffee Day’ and to declare the first New Orleans Coffee Festival.

On September 29, 2014 the museum has a new home, and you can read about it here on their web-site: Cut the Ribbon at SoFAB’s New Home! , they even have a clock counting down. How fitting that the 29th is ribbon cutting day, the day they coined the term “International Coffee Day.”
