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 Saturday, 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.
Coffee Labs joined the spirt of the day with co-owner's Mike Love's guest appearance on a radio show...in Georgia on Thursday at 2 p.m. He offered tips on "how to brew the best cup of coffee." Click here to tune in to WCON FM.
National coffee chains with branches here will also be giving out free cups of coffee this week.
The Tarrytown McDonald's will be giving away free 12-ounce coffees Friday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Sept. 29, all day both days. No purchase is necessary, and coffee will be available in the drive-thru or in the restaurant.
It’s CofFREE Day at 7-Eleven, which means a free large coffee for anyone who stops by the Tarrytown 7-Eleven store between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sept. 28.
