Did you know that today, September 29, is NATIONAL COFFEE DAY? Don’t worry, I didn’t either, despite my severe addiction to this glorious brown liquid. Whether it is the caffeine I can’t do without or the fantastic taste of a dark-brewed blend containing outrageous amounts of sugar and milk, the truth is this brown liquid keeps me company every morning. Now, I do not usually take time to discuss documentaries when we have a bright, new TV season to play with, but when I saw that CNBC will be providing an inside look to my greatest addiction, I had to take a look.
Coffee has been called The Social Drink and it is the jolt that gets us through the day, and the one we can’t seem to live without. Once just our morning fix, it has become an American cultural obsession in a nation that consumes 400 million cups of it—every day! It is also an $70 Billion global market. On National Coffee Day, CNBC presents a special one-hour documentary titled “The Coffee Addiction,” on Thursday, September 29th at 9PM ET/PT. This report allows us to see the journey of the coffee bean from the jungles of Peru as it makes its journey to ultimately end in our cup. We will get an interesting look at the major players (like Starbucks), the way this commodity is traded, and even peek into the health effects. It will be hard to look at my morning coffee in quite the same after this. And don’t worry about that 9pm time interfering with your other programs; if you check the listings, you will see multiple airings of this program. Details on it follow.
