National coffee day is meant for the celebration and enjoyment of the popular beverage coffee and to promote fair trade coffee and to increase awareness for the betterment of the coffee growers.
National Coffee day is observed annually on October 1st. On this day many business all around the world offer free or discounted cups of coffee and some share coupons and special deals as part of the national coffee day celebrations. Greeting cards will also be available in the market to help celebrate the occasion.
It’s tough to trace the exact origin of National Coffee Day though many countries celebrate this event. It was The All Japan Coffee Association that promoted International Coffee Day and celebrated the day for the first time in Japan in 1983. The term "International Coffee Day" was first used by the Southern food and beverage museum during a press conference held on October 3rd 2009 aiming at 'International Coffee Day' and to declare the first New Orleans Coffee Festival.
