National Coffee Day is right around the corner—and what better way to celebrate than with your favorite Peach Valley pick-me-up and some fun coffee facts? Read on to learn more about this delicious drink in honor of the big day on September 29th.
It might just be our favorite fruit
Coffee isn’t just our favorite drink for breakfast (and brunch, and lunch, and the mid-afternoon slump…). It also happens to be a fruit! Well, sort of. To be exact, coffee “beans” are actually the seeds of the cherry-like coffee fruit grown in sunny, tropical regions of the world.
Coffee is the best blank canvas
Whether you have a sweet tooth or prefer your drinks on the drier side, coffee is the quintessential blank canvas! Take yours sweet, flavorful and delightfully cold, like you’ll find in our Café Iced Caramel Latte, or classic, warm and strong, like our go-to Espresso built for busy days and early starts.
It can even make midday naps better…
We often turn to coffee as an alternative for quality sleep on busy days—but did you know that coffee and zzz’s can actually be combined to help you feel even more rested? Have a cup of your favorite coffee and then turn in for a quick power nap of about 15 to 20 minutes. This is the amount of time it takes for caffeine to be absorbed by your body, so that you can wake up feeling rested and ready to go! (Of course, this is no replacement for regular sleep—you should strive to get your full eight hours every night! But on days when you just need a quick pick-me-up, coffee can turn your afternoon nap into something even more powerful.)
… and unites foodies around the world
Coffee may be the a.m. drink of choice here in the United States, but it boasts a passionate following all around the globe! The ways different countries take their coffee range from the sweet—like the frothy Greek frappe—to the surprising, like Finland’s kaffeost, in which hot coffee is poured over (and absorbed by) spongy cheese curds for a beloved treat. When you feel like traveling the world or expanding your cultural horizons, you can start by simply switching up your coffee routine!
