Ah, the perfect cup of java. According to an expert cupper (a professional coffee taster), there are four components of a perfect cup: aroma, body, acidity, and flavor.
From the moment the average coffee lover opens a fresh bag of coffee beans, the aroma beckons, percolating the senses. Even those who don’t drink coffee tend to enjoy the fragrance a roasted bean casts.
When determining the body of a coffee, the bean, the roast, and the brew are all factors. The bean affects the texture of the coffee, whether its silky, creamy, thick or thin on the tongue and throat. However, the darker the roast and how it is brewed will alter the feel of a coffee’s body, too. Grandpa’s motor oil blend versus the coffee shop around the corner’s silky smooth, well-practiced grind have entirely different bodies.
National Chocolate Milk Day is observed annually on September 27. This is a day to enjoy a tall, frosty glass of chocolate goodness.
Chocolate milk is loved by people of all ages!
Invented by Hans Sloane in the later 1680s, chocolate milk can be purchased premixed or it can be made at home with either cocoa powder and a sweetener or with melted chocolate, chocolate syrup or chocolate milk mix.
While Sloane was in Jamaica he encountered cocoa where the locals there drank it mixed with water. After trying it, he was reported to have founded it nauseating. Sloane then found a way to mix the cocoa with milk to make it more pleasant tasting. Upon returning to England, he brought the chocolate recipe back with him. Now people enjoy this delicious drink everyday.
The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups who worked to establish the charitable service day as a forward-looking way to honor the sacrifice of those who were lost and those who united in response to the tragedy.
In 2009, Congress designated September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) with supporting this effort across the country.
This year Americans of all ages and backgrounds will participate in activities to pay tribute to 9/11 victims and heroes and honor their memory by joining together in service projects to meet community needs.
Observed annually every third Tuesday in September, National IT Professionals Day is set aside to honor the venerable geeks of the world we all rely on to keep us connected. The IT (information technology) professional is the unsung hero of modern business, but often under-appreciated by it. Whether it be desktops, laptops, mobile devices, applications, servers, networks, databases or cyber security, IT professionals keep business humming. However, there is often a lack of understanding by business leaders and end users of the important role they play and the difficulties and complexities associated with modern IT.
National Grandparent's Day is a secular holiday celebrated to honor grandparents for their contribution to our lives, and to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children's children. As the number of grandparents continues to grow so does the impact they make on the lives of their grandchildren.
In the United States it is observed since 1978 when it was officially proclaimed on August 3rd.
