Today is September 29, International Coffee Day. Also known as Coffee Day or National Coffee Day in some parts of the world. This day is celebrated worldwide on September 29. However, in some countries, the date has been different. On this day, coffee lovers drink their favorite drink with enthusiasm.
History of National Coffee Day
Many legends tell how coffee was born in the first place. However, the earliest reliable evidence of drinking coffee or knowing about coffee trees appeared in the Sufi monastery near Moka, Yemen, in the mid-15th century. Here, the monks first roast coffee seeds and brew coffee, just as we prepare them today. Yemeni businessmen brought coffee from Ethiopia to their hometown and started planting seeds.
In 1670, Baba Budan tied seven seeds to his chest and smuggled coffee seeds out of the Middle East. The first plants that grew from these collected seeds were planted in Mysore. Later coffee spread to Italy and other parts of Europe, Indonesia, and the Americas.
Although Brazil produces more coffee in the world than any other country, Colombia is close behind. In addition, coffee is also grown in more than 50 countries in the world. Therefore, we choose from a wide range of flavors, allowing connoisseurs to enjoy the steaming black drink.

Meet and greet at the cafe
National Coffee Day encourages people to gather in their favorite coffee shops for conversation and Java. After all, this was the original function of the cafe as early as the 1700s. In England, cafes are called “university for a penny” because for a penny, people can drink a cup of strong coffee and find smart, engaging conversations-just like today!
Try a new brewing method
If you are ready to surpass the old coffee machine, then it’s time to take a risk. Many Americans swear by the taste of the coffee produced by French presses. Others prefer a Chemex beer machine, a Turkish coffee maker, or a cold brew drip machine. No matter which method you try, make sure that the coffee is of good quality because this is what really matters!
Surprise someone with a cup of Joe
Pick up a cup of coffee for colleagues, friends, family, classmates, and even the security guards you pass by on the street every day. Don’t forget to wish them a Happy National Coffee Day during the handover!
