According to the National Coffee Association’s 2021 National Coffee Data Trends Report, 85 percent of us enjoy at least one cup of coffee at home and an average consumption of two cups per day. And most of us buy at least one cup of coffee a week from some of these outlets offering freebies and discounts on National Coffee Day.
National Coffee Day freebies and deals In alphabetical order, because that’s the only fair way. And we are including chains with no location in NYC, because we have followers across the USA.
