10 Coffee Facts for National Coffee Day

Sept. 29 is National Coffee Day. A day to celebrate a drink that many people can’t start their day without. There were numerous stores, like Dunkin’ Donuts, who had given out free or discounted coffee on this day, but when you got your cup o’ Joe, did you know the interesting facts about coffee:

1.) A dancing goat discovered coffee. Well, farmers in Ethiopia noticed that their goats would get all jumpy after eating coffee beans, so they decided to try it for themselves.

2.) Coffee was a food before it was a drink. Before people figured out how to brew coffee, they used to eat it. The Oatmeal reports that African Tribes used to eat “energy balls” of coffee beans and fat.

3.) Coffee grows on tree. I’ve never seen one, but coffee trees can grow up to 30ft tall. Farmers cultivate coffee trees to about 10 feet.

4.) A “cup of Joe” was first coined in World War II. Soldiers, known as “Joe’s,” were identified as big coffee drinkers.

5.) Only two types of coffee tree are widely cultivated. 70% of the world drinks coffee from Arabica coffee trees. The rest drink coffee from Robusta trees.

6.) According to Herritage Coffee, there is only one product that gets traded more than coffee – Oil.

7.) A coffee tree takes about 5 years to mature. The average annual yield from a coffee tree is only enough for one roasted pound of coffee.

8.) Americano is another coffee term coined during World War II. American soldiers would order espresso with water to cut down on the bitter flavor.

9.) Coffee has been used as a beverage for about 700 years. Instant coffee was invented in 1906 by George Washington, but not that George Washington. The man who invented instant coffee was from Belgium.

10.) Gomestic reports that an average of 1400 million cups of coffee are consumed every day around the world.
