Coffee is celebrated each time a cup is prepared, bought or shared with others. But it is not so much the coffee beans than it is the ritual of coffee, and what it symbolizes for different people, that makes international coffee day so significant. It is the one day of the year people get to unashamedly consume as much coffee as they can. To celebrate international coffee day 2021, we rounded up our tiny team of coffee lovers to describe how coffee sustains them in their day to day lives.
Mommy survival juice
Being a mom and a wife could easily be considered two separate jobs on its own. Add in a fulltime day job and you have an overworked, constantly tired millennial woman. For many of these women, family comes first and they would sooner run themselves down before seeing their family lack anything. When asked what gets them through a typical day, our social media manager’s reply was “seeing my kids smile and lots of coffee throughout the day”. For moms, coffee isn’t just about the taste but more about remembering to take regular breaks during which they are able to appreciate the stillness and become re-energized. Even superheroes need to rest.
Breakfast Blend (Medium roast) Hello sunshine
Our founder and editor adores coffee, obviously. When we asked him what he loves about coffee his response was that coffee literally makes him a better person. Although research is inconclusive, he believes that coffee improves his mood. So much so that he is better off having a cup of coffee before communicating with anyone else. A good cup of black coffee in the morning is what he calls his true “ray of sunshine”.
Bali Blue (Medium to dark roast) Energizer
With constant deadlines, crisis management and an often overloaded work schedule, our communications manager can always be found at her desk with a coffee mug nearby. In the days leading up to International Coffee day, we were unsurprised that our comms manager was the most enthusiastic. Without asking, she explains that coffee is what keeps her going throughout the day and often nights too. Working in a fast-paced environment certainly does test one’s energy levels. In addition to her high daily coffee cup quota, she also advocates for healthy eating of which coffee, plays an integral role, she claims.
6 Bean Blend (dark roast)
Working in a small team can be an amazing experience but it is also a ton of work. The rest of our team are not regular coffee drinkers but they love a coffee cocktail experience. To accommodate everyone, coffee day this year was a fun-filled coffee experiment. From cold brews, decaf, cocktails and iced coffee – we tried them all!
