Happy International Coffee Day!
International Coffee Day is a special day to celebrate the world’s second most popular beverage…COFFEE! Second, of course to water. This day was first celebrated in Japan, in 1983. Not only do we honor our favorite beverage, but we also recognize the coffee farmers, because without their hard work, we wouldn’t have our daily brew. With most commercial brands, the farmers only get a very small wage, which is frequently less than $1 per day. Be a part of the solution, and look for ethically sourced coffees. These are identified by various certifications, such as Fair Trade. Many roasters have created their own certification of sorts, known as ‘Direct Trade’. This practice is predicated on creating the most direct trading relationship with the growers as possible.
