How and Where to Celebrate National Coffee Day in The Treasure Valley
National Coffee Day is celebrated every year on September 29th. Coffee is one of the worlds most popular beverage Coffee beans are native to tropical parts of Africa and were discovered in the 11th century. According to Guinness World Records, the largest cup of coffee was 22,739 liters (6,007 US gal). It was brewed by Alcaldia Municipal of Chinchina in Caldas Colombia on June 15th, 2019. It took 50 people more than a month just to build the cup. The world's most expensive coffee is the kopi luwak with prices ranging from $100 US to $500 US, per pound. The coffee is produced when Civets (kind of like a cat looking racoon thing) eat coffee cherries and their digestive enzymes break down specific proteins in the beans. It is later defecated and collected for coffee. So the most expensive coffee in the world is made from poop. Just so we're clear on that....
