International Coffee Day is fast approaching. The International Coffee Organization has chosen a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it. Have you ever thought about how many women it took for you to be able to drink your daily cuppa?

The idea for the 2018 campaign goes beyond paying homage to women! We want to highlight the need for equity and equality in the coffee sector, from bean to cup, and that can only be achieved by empowering women to the benefit of the whole coffee sector.

Last year’s celebrations were very successful with coffee events held in over 45 different countries across the globe. This year we want to do even better, so join in on this very important occasion to celebrate ‘Women in Coffee’! To learn more, please visit our blog.

Annual Review, published in four languages and posted online.

What is International Coffee Day?1 October 2018

Many countries around the world celebrate their own National Coffee Days at various times throughout the year. In Brazil, the biggest coffee producer, it is celebrated on 24 May. In the USA, the biggest coffee consumer, on 29 September. Every day is a good day for celebrating our favourite hot beverage. However, to try and unify all these celebrations across the globe, the Member countries of the International Coffee Organization and their coffee associations chose 1 October as International Coffee Day so that everyone can join in and celebrate together!
