Today is National Coffee Day — which means it's possibly the most caffeinated made-up food holiday of the year.
The best part of this day is the fact that many stores and restaurants are giving away java. So whether you need some morning joe or an afternoon pick-me-up, take advantage of these coffee deals.
Note: These freebies are good for today only (Thursday, September 29), and a few require a purchase.
Brooklyn Water Bagel Company
In honor of National Coffee Day and Buck, the beloved German Shepherd and mascot of Brooklyn Water Bagels, stop into any Brooklyn Water Bagels from today, September 29 through October 5. When you purchase any coffee product, a dollar will be donated to Tri-County Humane (a buck for a Buck — get it?) In addition, you'll get a pass good fro one dollar off any coffee product all week long!
Crema Gourmet Espresso Bar, located at 169 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, is offering patrons a free Illy coffee with a purchase of a breakfast or lunch item. Coffee lovers can drop in anytime from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to enjoy their choice of a free shot of espresso, a macchiato, cappuccino, latte, or freshly brewed coffee.
Cumberland Farms is giving customers Farmhouse Blend or Bold coffee, hot or iced, in any size all day long. Just text the word FREECOFFEE to 64827 using your smartphone to receive a mobile coupon for a free hot or iced coffee in any size.
Della Test Kitchen at the Wynwood Yard
Della Test kitchen is offering a free cold-brewed La Perla coffee to anyone who purchases a bowl. The offer is good for dine-in patrons only.
America's doughnut-and-coffee shop turns 66 this year, and to celebrate the momentous occasion, you can get a medium coffee for 66 cents on National Coffee Day. The offer is good all day, and no other purchase is required.
Always more than generous, Krispy Kreme is giving out a free glazed doughnut and 12-ounce coffee at all participating locations. No purchase necessary — just ask nicely.
Get a $1 nitro shot all day when you order through Speedetab! Offer good at all Panther Coffee locations.
Segafredo Cafe will offer complimentary shots of coffee all day. The offer is good at Segafredo L'Originale (1040 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach) and Segafredo Bayside (401 Biscayne Blvd., Miami). In addition, take a selfie and tag Segafredo on Facebook to enter to win free coffee for the entire month of October. The winner will be announced Friday, September 30.
Alas, no free-coffee love from Starbucks. The chain will, however, plant a tree for every customer who purchases a brewed Mexican Chiapas coffee in participating stores today. The One Tree for Every Bag Commitment is an effort by Starbucks to help combat coffee rust in Latin America. The fungus attacks trees, making it nearly impossible to grow coffee. So far, the company has donated enough funds to plant 18 million rust-resistant trees.
In honor of National Coffee Day, W Miami (485 Brickell Ave.) invites you to get your java fix via complimentary Illy coffee from 8 a.m. to noon in the lobby.
