September 29th is National Coffee Day. But let’s face it, for many Americans, no national day is needed to validate the importance of the brew. According to the National Coffee Association, Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee each day. Some of us don’t even consider the day as officially starting, until we’ve had that first cup of Joe. Whether your preference is espresso, latte, frappe, or just plain old coffee, it’s a beverage at the very heart of many people’s daily lives. 40% of 18-24 year olds said they drink coffee daily, while 54% of 25-39 year olds said they drink coffee daily.  If you grab your coffee on the go, chances are, its staying hot while your hand stays cool thanks to a polystyrene foam cup—like the kind you get at most fast food restaurants. In celebration of National Coffee Day, and the foam cup’s role in delivering so much of the java we love, our good friends at the Polystyrene Foam Food Service Group posted a very cool blog with info on polystyrene foam food packaging. Check it out. And, want to see more cool coffee packaging? Check out our new coffee packaging Pinterest board, celebrating coffee– fresh to you, with a little help from plastic packaging!
