Coffee is more than just a drink, it’s an experience. Around the globe, different countries and different cultures enjoy coffee in different ways. From elaborate ceremonies to tricky taboos, coffee can be an excellent conduit to experience different global cultures. To celebrate International Coffee Day, here are some unique coffee rituals and traditions from different parts of the world.

Ethiopia

Perhaps more than anywhere else on Earth, in Ethiopia coffee is an event. An Ethiopian coffee ceremony is a ritual that can take as long as two hours — with coffee as the star of the show. Ethiopia has some bragging rights to coffee as it’s widely considered the birthplace of this beloved beverage.

The ceremony starts with the roasting of raw beans over an open flame — usually performed by the youngest woman of the household. Guests are often offered snacks during this phase and encourage to interact. At the core, the Ethiopian coffee ceremony is meant to connect participants in conversation.

After the beans are ground super fine by hand, they go into the jebena, a clay pot with slender pouring spout, to brew. The coffee usually goes through three different brews, with each participant receiving a cup of each brew. The first is the Abol (the strongest and most important), second is the Tona (little more water), and the last is the Baraka. Each stage has significance attributed to the occasion — addressing a conflict in the Abol and finding a resolution in the Baraka, for example.

The drawn-out nature of the process encourages participants to slow down and enjoy life — while the coffee keeps coming.

Italy

Coffee is so deeply rooted into the Italian culture the country has developed some deeply rooted rules and taboos to follow. When consuming coffee in this beautiful mediterranean country, be careful not to accidentally perform a faux pa in one of the many fantastic bistros.

Italians have built their eating and drinking traditions around certain ideas about digestion. The pre-dinner drink, for example, is thought to warm up the digestive system to receive heartier items in a meal.

For this reason, it has become a taboo to order a cappuccino — frothy milk and coffee — after the morning. Order up a cappuccino after 11 am in Italy and there’s a good chance an Italian will shake their head in scorn — feeling sorry for your digestive system. The heavy milk is believed to be hard for your body to digest — and therefore should be consumed in the morning to process throughout the day.

Coffee is also meant to be an experienced in cafes in Italy — not in a foam to-go cup. (You will actually not find a single Starbucks in Rome for example.) Native Italians tend to go for their own version of the to-go coffee, a shot of espresso enjoyed while standing up at the counter or bar.

Turkey  

Coffee in Turkey is, like in Ethiopia, a reason for a celebration. In social gatherings, the Turkish people often hand grind their coffee and mixed with cold water in sugar. Traditionally, Turkish coffee is boiled and brewed in a cezve, a pot made of copper or brass.

This handmade coffee is similar to many other traditions, but the people of Turkey take coffee grounds to another level. As the grounds settle, they are saved and used to tell fortunes of the coffee drinkers. While the fortune telling is often just for fun, many do take it seriously when it comes to matters of choosing a partner or other big life events.

How will you be celebrating International Coffee Day? Do you have your own cultural, family, or personal tradition?

What Sets ORGANO™ FENIX XT™ Apart from Other Energy Drinks

Mainstream energy drinks have an image problem. They have too much sugar. Too much caffeine. They have even been linked to heart problems! But not all energy drinks are created equal. ORGANO™FENIX XT™ is the new way to enjoy an energy drink — with less sugar, less caffeine, and more healthy ingredients.

So how is FENIX XT™ different from mainstream energy drinks? Let us count the ways:

1.  Less sugar. The main culprit of bad health in mainstream energy drinks is the ridiculous amounts of sugar. FENIX XT™ only has 5 grams of added sugar. That’s less than a glass of orange juice and much less than many sugary energy drinks that can contain more than 80 grams of sugar.

2.  Less caffeine. A serving of FENIX XT™ has 100 mg of caffeine. That’s equivalent to about ⅔ of one cup of coffee. In one study, researchers found energy drinks with as much as 242 mg in a serving — with many energy drinks containing more than one serving in a can or bottle.

3.  Arginine. This amino acid helps regulate nitrogen levels in the muscles to support rigorous activity.

4.  Rhodiola. A secret of Olympic athletes for years, rhodiola is believed to enhance endurance.

5.  Vitamins. FENIX XT™ has a healthy dose of B Vitamins and Vitamin C to help boost your immune system and fight free radicals from exercise and the environment.

6.  Convenient delivery system. FENIX XT™ is packaged into convenient sachets rather than canned. This means you could have multiple servings at home, work, or in your gym bag without hauling around heavy cans. Just mix with water or your favorite beverage and enjoy!

7.  Ganoderma lucidum. This magical mushroom is the secret powerhouse behind many of the ORGANO™ products. Ganoderma has been used by centuries because of the health benefits of its unique amino acids and triterpenoids.

Already with less sugar and caffeine, FENIX XT™ sets itself apart from other energy drinks by delivering even more. With the list of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids this energy drink has raised the bar for the industry. It will deliver long lasting energy without the crash that comes from overconsumption of sugar and caffeine.

Added bonus, it’s delicious! FENIX XT™ comes in a mango peach flavor that’s yummy without being too sweet.

Have an awesome day and keep healthy!
