Woohoo, it’s almost here! The greatest day of the year! National Coffee Day is coming up on September 29th! Okay, okay, so maybe it’s not THE greatest day of the year, but if you understood my absolute love for coffee, you’d realize why it’s pretty close! Did you know that Canadians consume an average of 2.8 cups of coffee every day? I’m not even going to tell you how far over that average I go. I’m one caffeinate mama, though, let’s just say that!

To celebrate this most fabulous day, we’re sharing a few fun facts about coffee that I think you’ll love. Then read on for tips from our friends at Church & Dwight to fight coffee stains on both your clothes and your teeth!

5 Fun Facts for National Coffee Day

  • Coffee is good for your memory. Numerous studies, including one at John Hopkins university, found that the caffeine in coffee may actually help enhance your long-term memory! You don’t need to consume as much as I do to see the effects. Just about 200mg of caffeine a day is enough. That’s equal to one strong cup or two not-so-strong cups. This isn’t news to those in Yemen and Arabia, where coffee has long been used as a brain tonic.
  • Coffee helps fight the symptoms of the common cold. While coffee can’t fight off the virus that causes a cold, it can help you better cope with the symptoms by alleviating some of the sluggishness that comes with them. Caffeine is also a bronchodilator,  which means that it helps open up your airways and may soothe that cough.
  • It’s not really native to North America. Did you know that Hawaii and Puerto Rico are the only places in North America where coffee is grown? Hawaiin coffee is pretty tasty!
  • There are two main species that go into making your morning cup of Joe. If you’re drinking brewed coffee, there’s a very good chance it comes from the Coffee arabica tree. These trees are known to produce the highest quality coffee. Prefer instant? You’re most likely drinking Coffee robusta, which has heartier beans and contains between 40-50% more caffeine.
  • It takes a lot of trees to fuel the world! Each Coffee arabica tree only provides between 1-2 pounds of coffee per season. The robusta tree gives off slightly more at 2-3 pounds. Goodness, that means an entire coffee tree forest is required just to keep me going all year!

Love the coffee, lose the stains!

  1. I am one of those crazy lover of coffee and I love them in any form anytime. A National Coffee Day sounds amazing and it feels so good to hear about all those fun facts as well behind it.

  2. I don’t drink coffee unless it is sweetened to the point that it doesn’t even resemble coffee, lol! I wish I liked it though–could use the energy!
