NATIONAL COFFEE DAY: SEPTEMBER 29

 

"I can't imagine a day without coffee! I can't imagine!"

... Howard Schultz

 

September 29th is a special day for coffee lovers and admitted coffee-holics! That's me! It's National Coffee Day!  National Coffee Day  happens to be one of my two most favorite "food related" days of the year (the other being World Chocolate Day). Click for THE ULITMATE GUIDE TO DIFFERENT COFFEES.

 

I love coffeeFor all the "coffee-holics" out there (and I'm unabashedly one, firmly believing that coffee should be its own food group), what a great excuse to go out and celebrate with an extra cup or two of coffee!

 

"Sometimes I go hours without drinking coffee. It's called sleeping."

... Anonymous

 

If you know some truly serious coffee lovers did you know you can send them an e-card to mark the day, so why not surprise them with a free e-card to celebrate National Coffee Day?

Coffee Facts:

 "No matter what historians claimed, BC really stand for 'before coffee.'"

... Cerise Sinclair

  • 2.25+ BILLION cups of coffee are consumed DAILY worldwide! (By the way, have you ever wondered... how they count those cups?) I know I contribute to that number... as I'm now on my fourth cup of the morning... and the day is still young! 

  • Specialty coffee sales are increasing by 20% per year and account for nearly 8% of the $18 billion U.S. coffee market.

  • Coffee has been around since 800 AD, having been discovered in Ethiopia.

  • As a world commodity, coffee is second only to oil.

  • 83% of Americans drink coffee regularly according to The National Coffee Association. 54% drink coffee every day. Some 150 million Americans drink three cups of coffee every day. (I know I do my share to contribute to these statistics.)

  • Brazil produces 40% of the world's coffee. There are 25 million small producers who make a living from coffee.

  • Coffee beans are not actually beans, but fruit pits.

Coffee is its own food group

"Caffeine and sugar... the two basic food groups."

... Laurell K Hamilton

How To Brew The Perfect Cup Of Coffee:

"Adventure in life is good; consistency in coffee is even better."

... Justina Chen Headley

 

It seems to be a never-ending debate amongst coffee lovers... how to best brew a cup of coffee. I grew up drinking coffee that was percolated on a stove top. I still think that's the tastiest coffee I ever drank. And, oh, the aroma of that percolating coffee! Sadly, my mother's percolating skills did not pass down to me.

 

Over the years I've tried all the coffee brewing methods--percolating, automatic drip machines, manual drip, coffee presses. When we built our home in 2006, I installed a built-in Miele coffeemaker and have never looked back. There's just nothing like a freshly brewed cup each and every time. The major drawback to this machine (besides how expensive it is) is  that you can't use flavored beans in it. So when the mood strikes me for a flavored cup of coffee, I go back to my automatic drip machine.

 

"Life is too short for bad coffee."

... Joseph Baumel

 

Whatever your favorite method of preparing coffee might be, here's information on how to brew that perfect cup of java:

 

 

 "I believe humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee."

... Flash Rosenberg

 


 

Cooking With Coffee:

 

Being the "coffee-holic" that I am, I love absolutely anything coffee-flavored. So if you're like me, here are some resources for great recipes using coffee:

 

 


 

Coffee Quotes:

 

Did you know there are a lots of quotes about coffee?  Four of my favorite quotes, which totally define my personal relationship with coffee, are:

 

"Coffee is a language unto itself."

... Jackie Chan

"My birthstone is a coffee bean."

... Unknown

 

"The powers of a man’s mind are directly proportional to the quantity of coffee he drinks."

... Sir James MacKintosh

 

“As long as there was coffee in the world, how bad could things be?”

... Cassandra Claire

 

"Never trust anyone who doesn't drink coffee."

... AJ Lee

 

"Everyone should believe in something. I believe I will have another coffee."

... Anonymous

Bob "RealMan" Timm I guess it depends on how big your coffee pot is... I know I have three cups each morning and most afternoons another cup.

Joan Cox hi Joan... the onions, I get. Bacon... not so much. In fact it's one reason I rarely make it... hate having that smell in my house for the rest of the day.

Nina I love my cup of coffee in the morning, especially at this time of the year when I can give it a shot of eggnog.

Ok, the quote about going a few hours without drinking coffee made me laugh out loud.  I may have to borrow that one soon.

Hi Nina- I am on my third cup of coffee for the day and there will be more to come. When our power was out for 2 1/2 days in February I went a whole day without coffee. Never again!! We have had a Jura since 2004 and I love it.

Kathy Streib hi Kathy... I can always do a drip through a filter if I lose power. Fortunately, haven't had to do that for some years, though!

Nina Hollander, Broker

Kathy Streib smart thinking, Kathy! It's one thing to lose power... a whole other thing to lose coffee! :)))
