International Coffee Day Today!

I heart coffee

Need an afternoon caffeine fix?

The morning rush to work is over, but if you’re dozing off after a big lunch, it’s a great time to head to your favourite Ballarat barista to get your afternoon caffeine fix because it’s INTERNATIONAL COFFEE DAY!!

A day that is used to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage, with all sorts of events occurring right across the globe.

The first official date was 1 October 2015, as agreed by the International Coffee Organization and was launched in Milan.

This day also promotes fair trade coffee and aims to raise awareness for the plight of coffee growers. 

On International Coffee Day, some businesses offer free or discounted coffee and some share

coupons and special deals with their followers through social networking.
