Today is International Coffee Day!

Coffee is certainly something to celebrate! It’s a day to bring coffee lovers globally to share their love of coffee. We also need to remember the farmers it takes to bring us this wonderful brew.

This year, the International Coffee Organization would like to focus on the fact that despite the higher prices for coffee, farmers are not all paid a fair wage for their work. This in turn puts the availability of coffee at risk since the coffee farmers cannot even provide for their families through their work.

There are a lot of people involved in making that cup of coffee. Starting with the farmers, the pickers, the washers, the dryers, sorting and grading, then the roasters, assessing for flavor. Then the stores, the employees, the addons like sugar and creamer.
