Free Caffeine Alert: National Coffee Day in and Around Seattle

Parenting and free coffee: the best combo ever

Parenting and coffee — at least in the Seattle area — go together like peanut butter and jelly, but do we really need a "national day" to celebrate the joys of caffeine? Sure, if it involves freebies and deals.

Thursday, Sept. 29, is National Coffee Day and in honor, many coffee shops are offering cool caffeine deals that Puget Sound parents should particularly appreciate.

Here's a short list of freebies and deals offered. Check back, as we will add more as we find them. (Did we miss one? Post in comments.)

Also, probably the best overall source for the latest National Coffee Day news is twitter.com/#nationalcoffeeday.

Peet’s Coffee & Tea:  Free medium drip coffee with the purchase of any fresh food item. You can also enter a Facebook contest to win a Peet's sweatshirt and gift cert. 

Krispy Kreme: Free 12-ounce drip coffee and a free signature glazed doughnut at participating locations.

Top Pot Doughnuts: According to Twitter, all Top Pot Cafes will be giving away free cold brew coffee throughout the day while supplies last.

Whole Foods: Whole Foods is donating $1 for every cup sold to help alleviate worldwide poverty. You can also get $1 off an Allegro Pumpkin Spiced Latte through Nov. 1 at participating stores (and learn more about coffee here).

Starbucks: You can feel good about your Starbucks purchase on Thursday. Hometown coffee giant will donate a coffee tree start to a coffee farmer in Central American for every bag of beans or ground coffee purchased.

Dunkin' Donuts: For our national readers: Get a medium coffee for only 66 cents (in honor of Dunkin' Donuts' 66th anniversary).
