Stand up place for Milanese coffee—Milan is where International Coffee Day was launched.  Here’s a staff favorite: Camparino Bar in Galleria. This small bar in Galleria Vittoria Emanuele II beside Piazza Duomo is famous for its aperitivo drinks. It also serves a mean caffeè macchiato. Make sure you drink standing up at the bar inside like the locals to ensure to avoid tourist charges.

GUEST BLOG / By Cath Feeney--Holy Guacamole, we missed the annual avocado dip day on September 16, but blimey we're not going to let International Coffee Day go by without a mention.

Yes, yes, it’s a made-up day not quite achieving the made-up day status of Mother/Father’s Days but it is an occasion that is used to promote and celebrate coffee as a beverage, with events now occurring in places across the world. The first official date was 1 October 2015, as agreed by the International Coffee Organization and was launched in Milan.

This year Coffee Day events worldwide will be held on Sunday, September 29. THAT'S TOMORROW!  Check your local coffee communities for spiels of coffee deals. Free cups of coffee has to be a good idea.

Oddly, Starbucks is ignoring International Coffee Day, but it reminds folks of Starbucks Happy Hour(s) on Thursdays.
While not free, Starbucks offers a buy-one-get-one-free offer.

Between 3 p.m. and closing Thursday, September 27 buy any grande or larger handcrafted espresso beverage or Frappuccino and get one free. The offer is available at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Dunkin' Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Peet's, McCafe, Caribou Coffee—are just a smattering of the countless cafes offering a steaming cup of joe almost anywhere in the USA. Many cafes even offer free coffee on National Coffee Day!

Remember coffee is good for you.

Coffee isn't just a beverage that perks us up. It actually helps our brains produce dopamine and adrenaline, thereby improving our capacity to remember things. Studies show that regular coffee consumption can reduce the likelihood of developing dementia by as much as 65%!
