Today is National Espresso Day for all of the coffee lovers out there. Rich and powerful espresso is a fantastic boost to the day and a go-to for coffee drinkers who are looking for a way to get through those long hard days.

HITC explore whether coffee giants Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts will be offering customers any deals to celebrate National Espresso Day.


What is National Espresso Day?

In Turin, Italy in 1984 Angelo Moriondo created an innovative machine that found a way to separately control the passing of steam and water through the coffee.

Of course, coffee existed before this point but this creation made it possible to extract the fullest potential from the humble coffee bean.

National Espresso Day was created to honour Moriondo’s invention and the man who made it possible!
