International Coffee Day

International Coffee Day is an annual observance to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage.

On March 3 to 7, 2014, the International Coffee Organisation made a decision to launch the first official International Coffee Day in Milan as part of the EXPO 2015, a universal exposition in Milan from May 1 till October 3. The International Coffee Organisation was set up in London in 1963 under the auspices of the United Nations because of the economic importance of coffee.

Many countries around the world celebrate their own national coffee day on various dates throughout the year. The International Coffee Day creates a single day for coffee lovers and drinkers around the world to celebrate.
