Normally, we have a very low tolerance for fake national food holidays, but we can’t ignore the crucial fact that many, many cups of coffee today are discounted or complimentary because it’s “National Coffee Day.” Predictably, it’s mostly chains going in on this, but here you go.
Dunkin’ Donuts: A medium-size Dark Roast coffee is free today, then goes to 99 cents for the rest of the week.
Krispy Kreme: Customers can get a free 12-ounce House, Dark Roast, or Decaf coffee, or for $1, upgrade to a mocha, latte, or iced coffee.
McDonald’s: Participating locations have been running this deal since last week, but small coffees are free today during normal breakfast hours.
Tim Hortons: Any size regular or dark roast coffee is $1.
The Original Brooklyn Water Bagel Co.: Free hot or iced coffee with any purchase.
Kangaroo Express: Customers at the Southeast chain’s stores can grab a 12-ounce Bean Street coffee for a penny.
LaMar’s Donuts: Free 12-ounce coffees all day.
Peet’s Coffee & Tea: Participating locations are running a buy-one-get-one-free deal all day good on drinks that aren’t juices or bottled beverages.
Starbucks: Starbucks is doing free samples of its Ethiopia Coffee Blend.
