The most important holiday of the year is on Thursday, Sept. 29: National Coffee Day. Start it off on the right foot by grabbing a free (or nearly free) cup of coffee from the following participating coffee shops.

  1. Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf: Get a free espresso shot when you download The Coffee Bean's new mobile app. Select locations will also offer surprises, like free tumblers and the chance to win free coffee for a year. The Los Angeles location at Sunset and Hayworth is giving away free coffee for life to one customer.
  2. Peet's Coffee: Get a free medium coffee from Peet's Coffee when you purchase a select food item, including any artisan baked good, a Simply Oatmeal, or a Fresh Food item.
  3. Dunkin' Donuts: Dunkin' Donuts isn't quite giving away free coffee, but it is selling medium drip coffee for just 66 cents in honor of its 66th year in business.
  4. La Mar's Donuts and Coffee: If you purchase a La Mar's Donuts and Coffee traveler coffee mug for $1, you can get it filled for free through Sept. 29.
  5. Birch Coffee: NYC coffee chain Birch Coffee is offering free coffee 7 a.m. to 10 a.m.
  6. Stewart's Shops: All locations of upstate New York coffee shop Stewart's Shops will offer free hot and iced coffee from 12 p.m. to close on National Coffee Day.

  10. Maui Wowi: Order online at Maui Wowi Coffees and Smoothies with the code "ALOHACOFFEE" and receive 50 percent off your order.
  11. Starbucks: OK, so Starbucks isn't giving out free coffee, but it's doing something even cooler! Starbucks will donate a free coffee tree to a coffee farmer in need for every cup of brewed Mexican Chiapas coffee sold on National Coffee Day. It's a win-win for caffeine addicts everywhere.
