This Monday 1st October people from all over the world will be celebrating International Coffee Day by showing their appreciation for coffee.


But did you know that there is a lot of work that goes into your cup of coffee, from the coffee farms to the supermarket. International Coffee Day toasts the hard work that goes into the whole process. There are 77 Member States of the International Coffee Organisation and on Monday they will all come together to celebrate the event, which has now been running for 3 years.
