Happy National Coffee Day

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – It’s National Coffee Day!

If you’re a coffee drinker, go ahead and indulge. This day is celebrated annually on September 29.

According to Harvard School of Public Health, 54% of Americans over the age of 18 drink coffee daily.

The consumption of coffee is also a big business.

Harvard reports Americans spend $40 billion annually on their daily Cup of Joe.

When it comes to health benefits, experts suggest coffee drinkers are less likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, heart rhythm problems, stroke and certain types of cancer.

If you like to brew your coffee at home, WNCT’s Maria Satira shares several DIY coffee recipes in her Make It Monday series:

Pumpkin Spice Latte
