If all those morning coffees are burning a venti-sized hole in your pocket, then take today off of worrying about it and enjoy a freebie. Today is National Coffee Day, for those of you who didn’t know, and our friends over at Grub Street have rounded up all the spots in New York City where you can score a free or cheap cup o’ joe today. At some spots, like Krispy Kreme, donuts are included!

The list of participating shops includes Dunkin Donuts (66 cents/cup), Krispy Kreme (free + donut), Peet’s Coffee (free drink with any food item) and more.

Admittedly, free or cheap coffee means you might have to settle for crappy chain coffee instead of your usual third-wave espresso, as there aren’t so many indie coffee shops taking part in the holiday. But Toby’s Estate (125 N. 6th St.) is offering 20% off their Black and White pre-bottled cold brew, so hey, that’s something. And who wants to sit in one of those wifi-limited coffee shop libraries today, anyway! Grab yourself a shitty free coffee on the go, and save the extra few bucks for something better tomorrow.

What’s better than a bar that has curated craft beer and whiskey, great food and cool art on the walls? A bar that has all of that plus good coffee, and as of this week, Sugarburg is it. Better yet, they’re giving it away for free next week. (more…)

We now know at least one good thing is happening in 2015. via Facebook

So, it’s officially 2015, in the sense that you can no longer revel in New Year’s Day or post-New Year’s Day haze where you said you were just too tired to work or act like a normal human. Back to the same soul crushing grind you had last year, oh well. At least you can start your awful grind it with a free pick-me-up this year, as Fort Greene Focus points out that Fort Greene coffee shop Baba Cool (64B Lafayette Avenue) is giving away coffee weekday mornings for two weeks to start the year.

And no, it’s not from McDonald’s.

To celebrate the opening of their new Clinton Hill cafe on Friday, October 3, Brewklyn Grind (557 Myrtle Ave) will be sharing free coffee and an assortment of pastries (delivered fresh from Balthazar!) starting at 8:30am and running until 10am. If you miss the free festivities, a cup of drip coffee is only $2, so you’re not breaking the bank supporting a local business. One that presumably will talk less about the Illuminati and Jews than some other coffee shops. (more…)

Waking up to your alarm’s angry buzzing Monday morning is always a downer. Mornings are rarely luxurious, between navigating the bathroom schedule and making the daily commute. Shake up your routine next week by checking out the new Kaffeehaus coffee bar located inside Black Forest Brooklyn (733 Fulton) though, because between 7am and 9am you can get your much needed cup of joe for free, according to Fort Greene Focus.

You may not be getting artisanal cold brew free everyday, but Panera Bread is generously pouring out a close second to hype up their new Bay Ridge location: free coffee! We know, Panera Bread. Still, anything free and caffeinated in general should not be scoffed at, so you may as well take it. (more…)

It’s the summer, so all you hip young people with your flowing hair and cool offices might be biking to work now and need some help with bike upkeep. Also, you lousy freelancers with non-air conditioned apartments might want to go somewhere with air conditioning without having to pay for the privilege. Because of your desirable demographic characteristics, Levi’s will be helping both classes of people with their Williamsburg Levi’s Commuter Workspace pop-up, where you can get free coffee, free wifi, free bike repair and free air conditioning until the end of July.

As you may recall, Olso Coffee suffered a huge fire last year, that caused the store to close for some time. But, you can’t keep a good coffee shop down, and they’ve clawed their way out of the ashes. Throughout, the surrounding community was good to them, so now they’re being good to the surrounding community by letting you choose how much to pay for a cup of coffee on the one-year anniversary of the fire.
