Coffee day? Understand the dates and which are the ‘official’ ones – 05/23/2023 – Café na Prensa
This Wednesday (24) is celebrated National Coffee Day. But you might be thinking, “Again?”. Yeah, the drink is so popular that it has more than one date to call yours. However, do you know the difference between them and which ones actually matter?
Two of the dates are the most accepted by the sector, and are even officially recognized by the entities that represent the industry, in Brazil and internationally.
National Coffee Day was established by Abic (Brazilian Coffee Industry Association) in 2005. The date represents the beginning of the coffee harvest in most parts of the country.
On October 1st, there is International Coffee Day, in which countries around the world celebrate the drink. The date is recognized by the ICO (International Coffee Organization) and by the 77 Member States of the entity.
According to the ICO, the date is “an opportunity for coffee lovers to share their love of the drink and support the millions of farmers whose livelihoods depend on the harvest”.
In Brazil, there are still those who celebrate a so-called World Coffee Day on April 14, but the date is not really recognized internationally.
