I heard recently that every day is Coffee Day, but then it was pointed out to me that this only happens once a year; can someone please clarify this for me?

Is every day Coffee Day?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because I haven't had my morning coffee yet. – yannis Aug 27 '15 at 6:39

I think your confusion results from the misunderstanding the criteria: only days ending in "day" are coffee days.

This is how coffee day is determined. Any other days do not count.


As a devoted Coffeeist, I can only say that the tradition of Coffee Day is far too powerful for one single day, possibly too great for an entire year! I think we all know the answer to this question, we know it in our gut, and we know it in our heart.

As sure as the sun will rise every day, so will the coffee in our cups. Have a Happy Coffee Day everyone, and have it every day.

As the creator of Coffee Day, I can canonically tell you that Yes, every day is Coffee Day.

  • This answer commits the "appeal to authority" logical fallacy. Can you present any evidence in support of your claim? – Lightness Races in Orbit Mar 10 '16 at 17:27

I love hot meta posts. Coffee is hot. In conclusion it is coffee day.

    @durron597 - clearly, you need some more coffee. Because that's the number one ("1") and not the letter "i". – user53019 Aug 20 '15 at 17:51

This statement is incredibly inaccurate and whoever pointed its incorrectness out to you is absolutely right (not to say an utter genius!).

As can be read on Wikipedia the official International Coffee Day is on a specific set date. So depending on where you live, you still have to wait a few weeks with any celebrations.

    You would tell me I can't have coffee for weeks!?! Begone foul demon! – Jimmy Hoffa Aug 20 '15 at 13:37

    who downvoted? if we want this in Hot Meta Posts, every answer should be voted up not down – gnat Aug 20 '15 at 13:37
