The world embraces coffee on International Coffee Day

The world is celebrating International Coffee Day which is celebrated to appreciate the coffee’s journey from farms to local shops.

The annual celebration was first launched in 2015 by the International Coffee Organisation (ICO), an intergovernmental organisation in the UK promoting coffee sustainability.

Coffee has a rich history and is considered a part of a vast number of societies, especially in social gatherings.

It is also one of the world’s most traded commodities, with millions relying on its cultivation for their livelihood.

The drink is rich in antioxidants, protecting body cells from damage, along with enhancing alertness and cognitive function.

The coffee beans history can go back to a legend in Ethiopia, with the first record in history being in Yemen in the 15th Century.

The beans were then grown in Yemen and by the 16th century it spread to Egypt, Persia, Syria, and Türkiye.

According to NESCAFÉ, there are now over 30 types of coffee combinations across the world.

From the middle eastern and Arabian coffee to western and Italian coffee there is sure to be a cup of coffee for everyone.
