National Coffee Day: Free Coffee at Caribou, McDonald's

Get your caffeine on and celebrate with a free cup of coffee.

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.  

Coffee chains will be giving out free cups of coffee on Sept. 29.

Get a free small coffee at one of the Caribou Coffee shops in Minnetonka, or try out the new one on County Road 101. The free coffee will be Amy's Blend. Caribou donates 10 percent of all Amy's Blend sales to CancerCare.  

McDonald's restaurants will be giving away free 12-ounce coffees on Friday and Saturday. The restaurant has announced that no purchase, and no coupons are necessary, just pop into your local participating restaurant and demand your free cup of Joe.

What’s your favorite blend, and where do you get it? Tell us in the comments.
