The International Coffee Day 2018 celebrations around the world exceeded expectations and there are plenty of events still taking place!

This year, the ICO and its 77 Member States recognized in particular the role of women in coffee. The theme was chosen as this year’s thematic focus because of the growing importance of women across the coffee value chain and to promote the empowerment of women to achieve gender equality and to increase productivity, supply and sustainable consumption, particularly in a climate of low prices.

You can check on the successful stories that event organizers have been sharing on our blog.

Promotional video, poster, postcard and infographics are available to download and to share.

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!
