National Coffee Day

Today is National Coffee Day! Are you one of the millions who will celebrate? Start by sending a free Coffee Day eCard and then find out where you can go to get a free cup of joe. There are number of local and national businesses offering free or discounted cups of coffee to celebrate Coffee Day 2013.

Some of the National Coffee Day deals include: If you show the National Coffee Day offer via the Dunkin' Donuts app on your mobile phone, you'll receive a free small hot or iced coffee at participating Dunkin' locations. Krispy Kreme is giving away a free cup of joe to any customer - no purchase required - on Sunday at participating locations. And Starbucks will be giving out free samples of their Ethiopian blend coffee. Don't forget to pay attention to social media as some businesses plan to share coupons and specials with their loyal followers.

So, where did coffee come from and how did it become so popular? According to legend, a sixth-century Ethiopian goatherd named Kaldi discovered his goats frolicking from one coffee shrub to another. He realized the coffee berries had a stimulating effect, and he began to experiment with the seeds. A century later, brewed coffee emerged in Arabia and the popularity of coffee grew at an exponential rate.

Today, over 400 billion cups of coffee are consumed each year. It is a world commodity that is second only to oil. Don't forget to take a coffee break (or two) to celebrate this historical and important beverage!
