National Coffee Day is a day in which you can celebrate all things coffee! No one seems particularly clear about who started this celebration for coffee. Who cares? It’s coffee time!
But it does seem to have been going on since about 2005! And it is celebrated in a number of other countries on this date, including the UK, Switzerland, Canada & Australia. Taiwan is now getting in on the day! Enjoy!
It’s a great way for coffee companies to drum up business in what is the transition between drinking ice coffee in the summer, and the need for real hot coffee in the coming winter months. So you’ll perhaps see some great coffee deals from the different coffee brand retailers.
Look for deals from the coffee chains, rather than the supermarkets, for the best coffee of the day. In 2014, Dunkin Donuts was serving free cups of coffee. Starbucks offered free samples & McDonald’s was particularly generous! I don’t have a lot of news yet on 2015’s specials… let me know if you find something! (There are links at the bottom!)
Of course, you could argue that every day is National Coffee Day… given the amount of coffee that America consumes on a daily basis!
A Quiet Coffee instead of National Coffee Day
But if you’re looking for a quiet cup of coffee during the day, perhaps your refuge will be away from the ‘happening’ coffeeshops, in a place like Starbucks, anyway!!
Drop me a line in the comments below with deals that you see. Have you seen anywhere offering a particularly good deal this year, apart from Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kreme & McDonald’s?
Okay, I’m going to keep you up with deals so far.
Deals on National Coffee Day!
So far I’ve only found a lot of local coffee shops doing this. Why not use this opportunity to try some of the local coffee shops in your areas! It builds diversity! I also found:
- Dunkin Donuts
