International Coffee Day

International Coffee Day is a global celebration of coffee, aimed at recognising the efforts of those involved in the complex supply chain, as well as promoting the love for this popular beverage. The annual event brings together millions of people, from coffee farmers to consumers, in various activities designed to showcase the importance of coffee in our daily lives and its impact on the economy and society.

International Coffee Day was officially launched in 2015 by the International Coffee Organization (ICO), with the United Kingdom being one of the key participants in the celebrations. In the UK, coffee is a vital part of the culture, with a rich history dating back to the 17th century. Today, the nation is home to a thriving coffee scene, with numerous independent and high street coffee shops serving a diverse range of coffee beans and brews. The UK also takes pride in its talented baristas, craft roasters, and the many innovative products that have emerged from the local industry.

In the United Kingdom, International Coffee Day is observed through a variety of events and promotions, often focusing on raising awareness of fair trade and sustainable coffee practices. Coffee shops, roasteries, and distributors take this opportunity to host special offers, tastings, workshops, and talks on the multifaceted world of coffee. United Kingdom has no specific dates for the observance, but typically follows the global date of 1st October for International Coffee Day to engage with the larger international celebration.
