Coffee in the morning to start our day; coffee at work to keep us alert... coffee with friends to catch up; going for coffee with a loved one or a future loved one – we drink coffee morning, day and night. Whether you favor espresso, americanos, lattes or cappuccinos; iced, decaf, instant or filter – Coffee Day is the day to savor and appreciate your beverage.
International Coffee Day is fast approaching. The International Coffee Organization has chosen a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it. Have you ever thought about how many women it took for you to be able to drink your daily cuppa?
The idea for the 2018 campaign goes beyond paying homage to women! We want to highlight the need for equity and equality in the coffee sector, from bean to cup, and that can only be achieved by empowering women to the benefit of the whole coffee sector.
Last year’s celebrations were very successful with coffee events held in over 45 different countries across the globe. This year we want to do even better, so join in on this very important occasion to celebrate ‘Women in Coffee’!
