If we’re being honest, I’m not exactly what you’d call a coffee aficionado, considering I only really committed to drinking it in the past couple of years to keep me awake from 9 to 5. Once I discovered those cool designs that baristas could make on my latte, though, my enjoyment definitely increased. On top of that, watching everyone else in the office argue about the way they like their coffee is endlessly entertaining to the girl who still doesn’t really give a shit whether she’s drinking a mocha or an iced coffee or whatever else. Some like it so hot it’s practically boiling, others prefer lukewarm with tons of sugar (me, that’s me) and still more prefer it iced and black. But there’s one type of coffee I think we all can agree is awesome, and that’s the free kind.
For those of you living under a rock next door to a pineapple under the sea, tomorrow is National Coffee Day. Before you go looking for a coffee tree (yeah, that’s a real thing) to take a picture of for Insta, let’s talk about the real reason the day is going to be great. Practically every place you can think of that sells coffee is having a giveaway of some kind tomorrow, and we’re here to direct you toward all the freebies you can hold in your greedy little paws. I plan on getting so caffeinated that people mistake me for a coke addict.
But, not all giveaways are created equally. Some of the best ones include Krispy Kreme, which has locations giving out free small coffees AND a free donut tomorrow, because what’s a goddamn small coffee without a glazed original? That’s right. It’s nothing. Another top of the line deal comes from Wawa, with free self-serve coffee in a bunch of different flavors, and if you feel like being a Good Samaritan for the day, head to Caribou Coffee. They will donate free coffee to health and hospital caregivers for every cup of Amy’s Blend coffee sold tomorrow.
Let the games begin. Here are a few more options to get you prepared for tomorrow’s festivities. Keep in mind that pretty much all of these are at participating locations only, so maybe double check before you sprint inside demanding free shit.
