Where to Get Free Coffee for National Coffee Day 2012

Get your caffeine on and celebrate with a free cup of coffee.

Where to Get Free Coffee for National Coffee Day 2012

If the first words out of your mouth every morning are, “I’ll have a large coffee”—or if you can’t even speak until after you’ve had your java fix—there's a national holiday created especially for you.

America will put staunch tea drinkers to shame on National Coffee Day on Sept. 29, when coffee fiends can rejoice and celebrate their beloved coffee bean with free brew from national chains.

Coffee was first brought to America in the mid-1600s in a shipment en route to “New Amsterdam,” now known as New York, according to the National Coffee Association. We have that shipment and the Boston Tea Party to thank for turning the nation into coffee drinkers. 

So where can you get a free cup of Joe?

Stop by McDonald's restaurants in Cumming - the fast-food chain is giving away free 12-ounce coffees through Sept. 29. No purchase is necessary, and coffee will be available in the drive-thru or in the restaurants.

Dunkin Donuts announced on its website that it will be selling coffee for $5.99 per pound on Saturday and Sunday at participating locations.

Krispy Kreme is offering one free 12-ounce House Blend Coffee per customer at participating stores on Sept. 29, with no purchase necessary. The company is also holding a contest in conjunction with their 75th anniversary. Participants will have a chance to win two free bags of coffee per month for the next year.

What’s your favorite blend, and where do you get it? Tell us in the comments.
