As a coffee addict of course I have to celebrate national coffee day which happens to be today - September 29th. So if you haven't had a cup of coffee yet today you better grab one and celebrate!
National Coffee Day has no history and no tradition, but coffee establishments are using it as a marketing tool and we all benefit. At Starbucks, customers get a free sample of Ethiopian coffee to celebrate the birthplace of coffee.
You can score a free cup joe on Sunday at Starbucks (which is where I heard about national coffee day) You can learn about other offers from coffee houses here: http://blog.al.com/wire/2013/09/september_29_is_national_coffe.html
I'll use any excuse to get myself a cup of coffee. It happens to be another gray, dreary day here. Perfect weather to curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee. :)
