About 2018 International Coffee Day

International Coffee Day was celebrated for the first time on October 1rst 2015 in Milan, and it was organized by the International Coffee Organization – ICO through emphasizing coffee's journey from the manufacturer to coffee lovers. Coffee (Coffea arabica L.) is a tropical plant which fruits are berries that in maturation become dark red in color and have two seeds inside themselves. The color and scent of coffee partially depend on the time used for baking its beans, and the quality of this drink depends on the manner of grinding the beans. The two most popular sorts are: Coffea arabica (typica and bourbon) and Coffea canephora (robusta). It comes from Ethiopia, from the Kaffa region by which it got its name. The legend says that the drink was discovered by a shepherd named Kaldi that noticed that his goats were more energetic after having nibbled on the red berries. After tasting the coffee berries for himself he concluded that they gave him additional energy, so he shared his discovery with Coptic priests in a nearby monastery. Through them, coffee expanded to the Arabic peninsula where the process of preparation, serving and drinking coffee was developed. In Europe coffee appeared in 1570 when the Venetian traders transported it to Venice along with tobacco. (Željka Šaravanja).
