Cup of Joe, Java, Dirt, Mud, Go Juice, Brain Juice, Rocket Fuel, Morning Jolt, Liquid Energy – these are just some of the names people have given to that very important breakfast beverage: coffee.
Over the decades, coffee has becoming increasingly popular (and important!) to daily life, particularly here in the U.S.
Therefore, it stands to reason that people would set aside a day to celebrate coffee, and is why we now have National Coffee Day.
To get you ready to celebrate this very special event, read on to learn why this beverage is so popular and how you can enjoy this special day.
Appreciating Your Cup of Joe’s Origins – Coffee’s History
Coffee as we know it started in Arabia in the 13th Century. Its stimulant properties helped Muslims devote long periods of time to prayer, thereby making it a very popular beverage.
In the 18th century, coffee made its way to the Americas, though it didn’t become really popular until after the Boston Tea Party.
Coffee continued to rise in popularity during the Civil War, where it was used to give soldiers a boost of energy. Teddy Roosevelt is even said to have coined the “good to the last drop” phrase that became Maxwell House’s signature slogan.
Since then, coffee – particularly specialty coffees like mochas and lattes – has turned into the most popular beverage choice. And not just for breakfast either. Americans love drinking their coffee morning, noon, and night.
How to Celebrate National Coffee Day: 3 Fun Options
Pammie’s Sammies wants to help you celebrate National Coffee Day (along with International Coffee Day, which is on October 1). Here are three ways to honor your Cup of Joe in 2017.
1. Surprise Your Friends with Their Favorite Coffee Beverage
Get your friends involved with National Coffee Day. Surprise them by picking up their favorite type of coffee and taking it to their house or place of employment.
2. Try Something New For a Change
This is a special occasion – why not try something new and interesting? If you drink black coffee on a daily basis, try a latte instead. This is a special time of year for the coffee industry. Shake things up a bit by trying a pumpkin latte or some other seasonal drink.
