National Coffee Day is Sunday, Sept. 29. If you’re dragging a bit, you can get a free cup at a number of local coffee shops. Here are some of the deals and Severna Park area locations—check ahead to ensure they are still participating in the national promotion:other locations. Participating locations will offer free coffee tastings of their new Ethiopia blend. Also, if you purchase a 1-pound bag of the Ethiopia blend, you will receive a ceramic cup (while supplies last).
The National Coffee Association says 83 percent of Americans have had a cup of coffee in the past year.
While there are some health concerns about over-consumption of caffeine, “for most people the health benefits [of consuming coffee] outweigh the risks,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
In moderation, coffee may help prevent Parkinson’s disease, Type 2 diabetes and liver cancer. It also contains antioxidants. In some instances, unfiltered coffee may elevate cholesterol in people with certain genetic mutations. Read more about the health benefits (and risks) from drinking coffee here.
