Need a caffeine jolt? You’re in luck. Today is National Coffee Day, and several locales in the area are serving up free cups.

More than 60 percent of Americans drink coffee every day, according to the National Coffee Association, and Coffee Day seems perfectly timed for a midweek pick-me-up.

So where can you find a deal? At Dunkin’, DD Perks members can pick up a free medium hot or iced coffee with any purchase. The offer is available all day, and nonmembers can sign up online.

Au Bon Pain is serving up $1 hot or iced cups today through Oct. 1. This Boston-founded chain is encouraging people to pay it forward by purchasing a cup for guests behind them in line.


Alltown Fresh, with several locations across Massachusetts, loyalty members can receive a free cup of coffee using the app. The local chain is also running a sweepstakes to give away free coffee for a year.

Peet’s Coffee shops are offering a few discounts to celebrate National Coffee Day. Coffee-lovers can get a free small drip coffee with any purchase Thursday, at participating locations. Or, if you prefer to make your coffee at home, pick up beans, K-Cup pods, and espresso capsules at 20 percent off on their website.

In both downtown Boston and Cambridge, Bluestone Lane is offering customers a free coffee valuing up to $5, if they order on the app.

Panera Bread is offering new subscribers of its Unlimited Sip club two months free if they join Thursday, and existing members will get $2 off select beverages on the app.

If you find yourself in Back Bay, check out Cafe Landwer for a free coffee, with the purchase of any coffee drink.

And at Barnes & Noble, customers can get a free tall hot or iced coffee with the purchase of any baked item.
