On National Coffee Day, it’s only natural to celebrate the magical liquid that turns us from curmudgeons into tolerable co-workers.
Even better: Free coffee and coffee discounts. Here’s what some local coffee shops and national chains are doing today.
Krispy Kreme is celebrating National Coffee Day all weekend. Customers can get a free hot coffee in any size, or a small iced premium blended drink today through Sunday. The one Krispy Kreme in our area is at 5692 N. Blackstone Ave., Fresno.
Actually, you can get free coffee at the truck stop as it’s also giving away a free small cup of Pilot brand coffee, hot tea or cappuccino.
Lanna Coffee is selling $1 drip coffee and $2 espresso drinks at a special event at its downtown Fresno location from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The warehouse-turned-coffee-roaster is at 617 Broadway St. Clovis-based Sunshine & Sugar Bakery will provide coffee-themed baked goods.
Yellow Mug Coffee at Champlain Drive and Perrin Avenue is selling its fall drinks for $4 today, including its “jack o’ latte.”
Hi-Top Coffee, which opened last week at 1306 N. Wishon Ave., is giving away free stickers today. The stickers are by the same local artist, Quinn Bowman, who did the mural inside the Tower District coffee shop, which is in the former Cafe Corazon spot.
The Revue, the coffee shop at 620 E. Olive Ave. in the Tower District that recently reopened, is serving discounted coffee today. It will sell $2 12-ounce cold-brew coffees and cold-brew floats with Ampersand ice cream for $4.50.
Rare Earth Coffee is discounting all its coffees by $1 today. That includes the coffee shops inside Johnny Quik stores at Avenue 7 and Highway 99 in Madera, Willow and Alluvial avenues in Clovis and Clinton and Blythe avenues in Fresno
Dutch Bros. isn’t doing any discounts – can you imagine those lines getting any longer – but it is doing something philanthropic. Today, all five locations in Fresno will donate $1 from each drink purchase to Boys & Girls Clubs of Fresno County.
