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.
Thank your local coffee joints—like Crossroads Coffee House in Roxborough or Cafe Volo in Manayunk—by popping in and showing your appreciation.
Regional National coffee chains will also be giving out free cups of coffee during the week of Sept. 23.
McDonald's restaurants along the East Coast——including the one in Andorra—will be giving away free 12-ounce coffees every day from Sept. 23 through Sept. 29. No purchase is necessary, and coffee will be available in the drive-thru or in the restaurants.
It’s CofFREE Day at 7-Eleven, which means a free large coffee for anyone who stops by a participating 7-Eleven store between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sept. 28. Check out one of the shops up and down Ridge Avenue.
If you print this coupon out, Dunkin Donuts, which three shops on Ridge Avenue, will sell you a 99-cent hot or iced latte.
Additionally, sign up to receive a free 16 ounce iced latte at Wawa. The coupon will be emailed to you and it is valid until Oct. 2.
