International Coffee Day is a marker of the long history of this drink. The first coffee beans allegedly found in Ethiopia, East Africa.
Coffee beans are actually holes found in berries or cherries. The story initially, a 9th century goat herder noticed the stimulation effect of the seeds on the goat and then began experimenting. The culture of drinking coffee was originally popularized in Arabia around the 15th century which then spread throughout Asia, then to Italy and throughout mainland Europe, then to America, and finally to our coffee cups today.
Today, coffee is one of the largest farms in the world, so it is important to consider buying ethically grown coffee. Make sure we can be selective in buying a cup of coffee and supporting ethical trade.
International Coffee Day is said to be a celebration of coffee lovers in the world and invites all to share their love for coffee. The trick is to support millions of coffee farmers whose lives depend on this industry.
This year, the International Coffee Organization highlights the condition of coffee farmers, as well as the threats they face in their lives. The price of a cup of coffee in a modern café may be expensive, but the price paid for coffee farmers producing coffee beans is still very low.
This makes the farmers do not have enough income for their lives and their families. In fact, they could one day leave the world of coffee production, thus disrupting the sustainability of the coffee drinking trend.
