National Coffee Day is almost upon us! Who doesn’t love the chance to celebrate the nation’s favorite beverage, whilst getting freebies, sending a gift, or simply just enjoying drinking it in the process? September 29th is the day to do just that! The opportunity to celebrate for a second time comes just days later with International Coffee Day on October 1st, a day which aims not only to promote coffee globally, but to recognize the efforts of people from around the world whose work ensures we can enjoy our daily caffeine-fix - farmers, coffee shop owners, tasters, roasters, baristas, the list goes on.
The United States are a nation of avid coffee lovers. We’ve got the Boston Tea Party of 1773 to thank for that – the year coffee took over from tea as the nation’s undisputed favorite! 7 in 10 Americans drink coffee every week, whilst over half drink it every day – that’s more than water! This puts us in the global top 25 largest consumers of coffee per head! There’s no wonder, then, that National Coffee Day should become a special day for all of us – 150 million daily coffee drinkers to be exact. With this, comes endless opportunity to use branded merchandise to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Maybe you own a coffee shop or café and wish to make someone’s visit extra memorable this National Coffee Day? Not only that, but if you’re a company who offer a coffee loyalty rewards scheme, why not give out a free gift along with free coffee! You may think that coffee-themed merchandise is only relevant for coffee-themed businesses? Of course, if you are a coffee shop, it may be more obvious to utilize merchandizing during this special day, but any business can get involved to gain valuable brand exposure. After all, it isn’t just people who visit coffee shops that drink coffee – studies have shown that on average, office workers drink around 20 cups of coffee whilst at work every week! A useful staple in every office, coffee products are sure to make a great choice for corporate gifting, whether that be at your next event leading up to National Coffee Day, or simply showing appreciation to your client.
