Celebrated on October 1 each year, International Coffee Day helps us give thanks for a world that knows coffee

On International Coffee Day, it's time to celebrate once more the fact that the world has coffee to make things better. Not just a beverage or a morning ritual, coffee brings people together. It can be a conversation starter, a culture builder, a stress-buster, a way to connect; sometimes, it can even mend relationships. 

When the pandemic broke out last year and lockdown trends were taking over the internet, Dalgona Coffee became the trendsetter on the world wide web; in India, coffee lovers across the country came together to enjoy this new style of coffee even amid a global crisis. 
The strong, unmistakable aroma of coffee unites coffee enthusiasts  across the globe on October 1 every year as we celebrate International Coffee Day
