Travel the world this International Coffee Day!

When you work with coffee, there’s not much that can get you down – after all, we get people moving, brighten their day and give them the chance to take a moment for themselves. On Monday 1 October 2018, International Coffee Day, the whole world will come together to celebrate the role coffee plays in their lives. We’re excited to share the joy of one of the world’s most favourite commodities and at Di Bella, every day is International Coffee Day.

 

When you think about it, coffee is a universal language with majority of the world either producing it or consuming. Sure, we all have our unique take on how we like our coffee, for example if you head to Vietnam their specialty is the egg yolk and condensed milk coffee, or you can get a shot of Irish whiskey added to your brew in – you guessed it – Ireland! And, just like its beans, coffee grounds you.

To celebrate the universal language of coffee, I have compiled my five favourite international coffee recipes. I’ve kept them nice and simple, so you can try them for yourself at home or at work. Enjoy!
