Hooray for National Coffee Day!

Today is National Coffee Day. Americans have been celebrating this occasion in honor of the Nations favorite beverage since 2007. Other countries celebrate but it may be a day before or after the 29th of September. While most of the population doesn’t need a reason to drink coffee, this provides an excellent reason to drink free coffee.

There have been many offers in the community of free coffee, reduced price coffee and coupons. Just some of these offers include Krispy Kreme offering a 12 oz cup of their newly introduced Signature House Blend. 7 Eleven convenience stores are offering free medium coffees, cappuccinos, and lattes until supplies run out. Others in the generous mood include coupons or buy one get one free offers from Barnes and Nobles, Starbucks, Caribou Coffee and Thornton’s.

If you are at home and can get on Facebook, Kikkoman Co., yes the soy sauce people want you to try their new Pearl Organic Soymilk Coffee. To have a free package delivered to your home, simply follow the directions on-line. Here as an offer you won’t need to drive to get.

Want to know more about your favorite fix? The legend of java’s beginnings stems from Ethiopia. A herd of goats kept a poor herder awake all night fighting and playing after eating the berries off one particular tree. Anyone who has a cup before bed understands this phenomena well. Knowledge of the coffee tree and its affects spread from Africa to the rest of the Middle East and by the sixteenth century the beverage derived from the berries was being served worldwide.

There are several medical uses from the active ingredient in coffee. We all depend on its stimulatory actions. Many an all-nighter at college occurred thanks to the help of coffee. It has an effect on mood as well. A medical journal reported that women who consumed caffeinated coffee had less depression than women who didn’t drink coffee or drank decaffeinated coffee. Coffee helps asthmatics breath better because caffeine is chemically related to a drug that opens up breathing passages.

No matter how you take it, coffee is an integral part of most everyone’s daily life. National Coffee Day is an excellent tribute to a beverage that generates 18 billion dollars a year in the U.S. and is growing 20% each year. So grab a free cup while you can.
