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 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.
National coffee chains will be giving out free cups of coffee during the week of Sept. 23.

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.
On Saturday, you can swing by Caribou Coffee shops for a free small cup of limited-time-only Amy’s Blend coffee using the attached coupon, either printed or on your smart phone.
