How to Celebrate National Coffee Day

September 29 is National Coffee Day in the United States. It is not a national paid holiday on par with Memorial Day and Labor Day, but we can work on that. In the meantime, we owe it to ourselves to make the most of National Coffee Day – both at home and at the office.

We can think of no better way to celebrate the day than bringing office coffee service into the workplace. Galaxie Coffee is here to help you with that. Whether you have never had coffee service before or you are looking to replace your current provider, let us talk.

While we wait for your call, here are some creative ways to celebrate National Coffee Day 2019:

Try a New Coffee

We will start small for those of you celebrating your first National Coffee Day this year. For you, the easiest way to celebrate is to just try a new coffee. Let’s say you normally drink only hot brewed coffee, and you only drink it black. You might want to try a delicious cold brew with just a hint of cream. You will discover it is an entirely different taste experience.

Take a Friend to a Coffee Shop

September 29 is a Sunday this year. That means most of us will not be working. Why not take advantage of the day off and spend some time with a friend at a local coffee shop? There may be no better way to celebrate National Coffee Day than investing in a friendly conversation over a hot cup. It will be time well spent.

Go in Search of a Great Deal

Many of the other holidays we celebrate involve shopping of some sort. You can apply the same thing to National Coffee Day by searching around town for the best coffee deals you can find. Make a game of it. Challenge your friends or coworkers to see who can come up with the best deal. Whoever wins gets to share his or her find with the rest of the group.

Go on a Coffee Crawl

There are food crawls and pub crawls, so why not a coffee crawl? Spend the day visiting as many cafés, bistros, and restaurants you can in search of that perfect cup of java. If you are feeling especially festive, try writing a short review of each establishment you visit. You can then share those reviews with your friends and family members.

Buy a Cup for Someone Special

Another fantastic way to celebrate National Coffee Date is to buy a cup of coffee for someone special. It’s amazing how just one little act of kindness can mean so much, even when that act is wrapped in a paper coffee cup. You could make a real difference in someone’s life just by showing you care enough to buy them a coffee.

There are endless other ways to celebrate National Coffee Day. In the meantime, let us talk about getting Galaxie Coffee service up and running at your office.

Coffee: The Miracle Drink

More and more we are hearing researchers refer to coffee as the ‘miracle drink’. Why? Because ongoing studies continue to point to coffee’s ability to help reduce the risks of certain kinds of diseases and illnesses. Some studies indicate that coffee even lowers mortality rates in general. No one quite knows why yet, but coffee seems to be one of the more healthy beverages one can drink.

It should be noted that we are talking black coffee here. Once you start adding sweetener, creamer, and all the other things people are adding to their beverages these days, the benefits of coffee can easily be outweighed by the negatives of those other ingredients.

Coffee Consumption and Heart Disease

We are thrilled to know that coffee is considered a miracle drink. But let us talk specifics. According to the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, numerous studies have shown a link between regular coffee consumption and reduced risk of coronary disease.

One cited study from 2014 suggested a reduced risk of as much as 7% for moderate coffee drinkers. A Dutch study that followed more than 37,000 people over 13 years showed that the lowest heart disease risks were observed by people who drank between 3 and 5 cups per day.

Coffee Consumption and Body Fat

Moderate coffee drinkers can take comfort in the fact that regular coffee consumption helps regulate body fat. Apparently, the human body contains two kinds of fat: WAT and BAT. The former is the kind of fat that we do not want. The latter is fat we do want because it helps to moderate body chemistry. Studies suggest that coffee consumption stimulates BAT to do what it does. And one of the things it does is encourage the body to burn WAT.

Other Benefits of Coffee Consumption

We could go on and on here, but hopefully you get the point. Science shows that coffee offers us a lengthy list of benefits including reduced risk of stroke, improved brain health, and reduction of the types of inflammation that cause aging. Coffee appears to be so beneficial that it has been linked to an overall reduction in mortality.

One study following 500,000 coffee drinkers showed an inverse link between moderate coffee consumption and mortality. Simply put, regular coffee drinkers are less likely to die – in general – than non-coffee drinkers. The study was carried out in the UK over a 10-year period ending in 2016.

It could be that coffee is so beneficial because it contains more than 10,000 different compounds believed to be important to human health. At any rate, science is discovering more and more benefits of coffee with each passing day. That is why they call it the miracle drink.

We would love the opportunity to introduce your office to the many ways we provide the miracle drink. Galaxie Coffee has a long history of serving the tri-state area with fine coffees, teas, and other beverages. We also supply beverage equipment and break room and janitorial supplies.
