There’s nothing like that morning cup of coffee. Some of us may have an old-school brewer with a timer set to wake us up (we all remember how Peter woke everyone up on Christmas morning with his Folger’s coffee). Others may get fancy with a pour-over or French Press method. Or perhaps you leave it to the professionals and go to your favorite local chain or coffeehouse.
Either way, for any of us who genuinely appreciate our coffee, National Coffee Day is a day to be celebrated — and celebrations are happening, as nationwide, there are amazing deals and freebies to be had in honor of the occasion! Just in time for the holidays, this isn’t limited to cups of coffee. There are gift sets, multipacks and even full-on coffee machines.
It’s like a caffeine addict’s wildest dreams come true! Time to scroll down and stock up on all that caffeinated goodness.
