It's CofFREE Day at 7-Eleven on Friday, At Krispy Kreme on Saturday

Various coffee purveyors are offering free coffee on Sept. 28 and 29.

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.  

Many businesses are participating in the national celebration.

You’ve heard the phrase vote with your dollars, well, now you can stretch that a bit into voting by way of coffee cup choice. While you’re at it, enjoy a free cup o’ joe on 7-Eleven on its CofFREE Day on Friday.

Participating stores will give away a free large coffee from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sept. 28.

You choose a blue cup or a red cup as your vote in the company’s 7-Election campaign.

The company’s 7-Election website will keep tabs on who is winning.

Nearby stores participating include these locations:

  • 2335 Winchester Blvd.
  • 262 W Sunnyoaks Ave.
  • 2223 S. Bascom Ave.

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.

I don't like coffee, but maybe hubby and I will go for a nice walk down to 7-Eleven to get him a free cup of joe!

Hahaha! I'm not a big fan of their coffee but a free cup? How do you argue with that? :)
