And on National Coffee Day, that ritual becomes a whole lot cheaper. On Sunday, September 29, several food and beverage brands are celebrating coffee by giving away free and highly discounted cups. 7-Eleven is offering coffee for $1 in any size; at Krispy Kreme, you can get free coffee with no purchase necessary, and try a new limited-edition product, too.
