International Coffee Day 2016 Logo

1 October is #InternationalCoffeeDay.

This year we chose a very special theme for this year’s celebrations: ‘Women in Coffee’. Women play as important a role in the whole of the coffee chain as men, from planting the seeds to processing to trading to brewing… and drinking it.
