Every day, really, is coffee day.
Especially in the Pacific Northwest, where we are collectively coffee-obsessed.
But Friday is coffee’s official American holiday. It’s National Coffee Day.
To celebrate, a bunch of establishments are giving away coffee or offering other special promotions. This is where to go to for free or cheap coffee – or coffee with a social justice component – on National Coffee Day in and around Spokane.
Spaceman Coffee is giving away one free small brewed coffee all day. Customers can also receive a dollar off a bag of whole beans Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 228A W. Sprague Ave. (509) 312-9824. spacemancoffeepnw.com.
Thomas Hammer is handing out 12-ounce cups of its Limited Edition Reserve coffee for free from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. – one per person – while supplies last. It’s a lightly roasted Rwanda Ejo Heza with notes of cranberry, nutmeg and baked pear. And, said drink training manager Christopher Anderson, “It is just as delightful as it sounds!” For locations, visit hammercoffee.com.
