International Coffee Day: Our well-deserved break
On October 1st, we would like to celebrate everyone working in this business to provide the best coffee. Go to the Magnifico Food website if you are looking for an excellent Italian Espresso.
History of International Coffee Day
Fall has just begun. We are experiencing the first cold weather after a long warm season, and many of us have already made the traditional "closet change" from summer to winter. It is always a bit traumatic to go from August/September to October. But one good thing for all seasons is to start the morning with the aroma of coffee coming out of the moka. October 1st is International Coffee Day. There is no place in the world where coffee beans cannot be found. People around the world have been brewing coffee for more than 500 years. In the United States, people started talking about International Coffee Day not so long ago. Many think it was first celebrated in New Orleans in 2009. Actually, every country celebrates its own Coffee Day. But internationally, it was in 2014 that the member states of the International Coffee Organization decided to organize this "holiday" on October 1st "to create a single day of celebration for deep coffee lovers around the world," their website says. "International Coffee Day is a celebration of the coffee sector's diversity, quality and passion. It is an opportunity for coffee lovers to share their love of the beverage and support the millions of farmers whose livelihoods depend on the aromatic crop", Ico.org report.
Millions of people are involved in the coffee business
Today is a good moment to remember what's behind our "tazzina di caffè," our cup of coffee. Many depend on this business. Coffee farms employ over 25 million people worldwide. We are talking now about the farms, but at this number, you have to add all the people who work in the post-production to bring the best coffee to your home or your table at the bar.
Espresso and coffee, always a good excuse to meet friends
It's unbelievable the number of people involved. Today we celebrate them, but let's take a few minutes to think about all the good memories associated with coffee. In our Italian culture, for example, when we want to meet someone, we say: "let's have a coffee" or "come home for a good espresso," meaning "let's meet." Coffee is an excellent excuse to meet: almost everybody loves it, and it is cheaper than dinner or aperitivo. You can call it espresso, latte, cappuccino, moka, café au lait; there are so many ways to use and name coffee, but the power of bringing people together is the same.
Magnifico Food has the best selection of espresso
Magnifico has a great selection of coffee. Visit our website to learn more about one of the most important brands in Italy: Miscela d'Oro, which has a superb blend of coffee with full body, great aroma, and a velvety cream.
