Customers always enjoy fun facts of their favorite hot and iced beverage. Hawaii is the only state in the United States that grows coffee beans. The rest of the country imports it. If someone is sighing about the consumption of coffee in a day, defend the habit. The coffee bean is actually formulated from the pit of a berry – which makes coffee a fruit. Explain to naysayers the fulfillment of the daily fruit intake (make it work!)
The coffee industry is pretty intense; caffeine helps 80 percent of the country wake from a work slumber and keeps them on the go. In addition to 80 percent of Americans consuming this delightful brew, it counts as one the highest traded commodities in the world at $60 billion annually. The health benefits of coffee has been controversial but like anything, moderation is key.
National Coffee Day finally received their just desserts as an official Holiday in 2005. The Holiday is so well-loved, even countries like Ireland and Switzerland celebrate it in September. From a latte, mocha, espresso, iced or Americano- enjoy the delights and immerse in a big cup of happy. The businesses are sharing a moment of free solidarity with the many caffeine seekers around the country. When at the shop, look around for any specials on bags of brew.
