Here's How To Get Free Coffee On National Coffee Day

Photographed by Nicole Maroon.
Where would we be without coffee? Asleep, for starters. The simple combination of beans and water has grown to include an array of beverages from fancy espresso drinks to our standby cold brew. It also is something we can both categorize into the "need" and "want" categories of our lives. We need it to keep our eyes open as we stroll into work every morning, but we also want to enjoy a cup of it on quiet weekend afternoon.
Cleary it is a drink that deserves to be honored. That's why this Friday, September 29, many of our favorite coffee chains are celebrating National Coffee Day. But instead of giving coffee a day off or flowers and a card, they're observing the day by giving back to us, the coffee drinkers.
