Celebrate International Coffee Day in Hitchcock House

Sandra Yager – October 1, 2019

Congratulations to Nafi Sall, selected as winner in our International Coffee Day trivia contest.
No one correctly guessed that Finland was the country with the highest per capita consumption of coffee so we did a random drawing to select a winner. Thanks for all who participated!

Who knew?! Yes, today is International Coffee Day. This day celebrates one of the world’s favorite hot beverages, which is enjoyed and celebrated around the world. Call it what you like: coffee, Java, cup of Joe, or any of dozens of names. Billions of people around the world drink billions of cups of coffee on a daily basis.

Can’t wake up and be alert without your first cup of coffee? You’re not alone. It is estimated that 88.8 gallons of coffee is consumed annually per person. We suspect that some folks we know consume a whole lot more than average! How about you?!

Stop by Hitchcock House today to answer our coffee trivia question and enter your name in a drawing for a coffee mug!
