If you’re a decaf coffee drinker you’re probably used to looking for that recognizable orange coffee pot whenever you’re at a restaurant, diner, coffee shop, or in line at Dunkin’. But why is it orange?
It actually started back in 1923 as a marketing strategy by the coffee company, Sanka. They were the first ones to make decaf coffee and the label on the package was that bright orange shade. To promote their brand the started sending out orange coffeepots to coffee shops and restaurants as branding. Then it just stuck ever since.
