National Coffee Day is this Sunday, Sept. 29. If you’re dragging a big, you can get a free cup at a number of local coffee shops. Here are some of the deals and Alexandria-area locations:
Caribou Coffee: the closest location is at the Village at Shirlington, 4115 South Campbell Avenue. You can download and print out the National Coffee Day coupon from Caribou Coffee’s Facebook page and bring it with you to get a free cup of coffee. Or, show it on your cell phone when you order.
Dunkin’ Donuts, 7611D Richmond Hwy and 1500 Belle View Blvd. Download the Dunkin’ Donuts mobile app, which is free, and look under “offers.” You can get a free hot or iced coffee with the mobile app.
Starbucks, 7696 J Richmond Hwy, 6754 Richmond Hwy and other locations. Participating locations will offer free coffee tastings of their new Ethiopia blend. Also, if you purchase a one-pound bag of the Ethiopia blend, you will receive a ceramic cup (while supplies last).
The National Coffee Association says 83 percent of Americans have had a cup of coffee in the past year.
