Where to Get Free Coffee for National Coffee Day 2012
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.
Many local businesses are participating in the national celebration.
Some national coffee chains have been giving out free cups of coffee all week.
McDonald's restaurants are giving away free 12-ounce coffees every day through Sept. 29. No purchase is necessary, and coffee will be available in the drive-thru or in the restaurants. McDonald's has Ashburn locations at Ashburn Village, Junction Plaza and Southern Walk.
It’s CofFREE Day at 7-Eleven, which means a free large coffee for anyone who stops by a participating 7-Eleven store between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Sept. 28. There are 7-Eleven stores in Ashburn at Pipeline Plaza and in Old Ashburn.
Duncan Donuts is selling a pound of cofee for $5.99 this weekend, Sept. 29-30. Duncan Donuts has a new location at Ashburn Village.
