It's here, it's here! It's National Coffee Day! Although in my world, every day is National Coffee Day, today holds an extra special place in my heart — and because I love you, I've gone ahead and made a list of 10 National Coffee Day deals that will surely help quench your thirst. Not only is it a great day for coffee (not unlike every other day of the week), but on this day, lots o' places are offering a cuppa joe for cheap or even free. Free! That's the best number ever. 

It should come as no surprise that so many companies are partaking in the hoopla that is National Coffee Day. After all, as of 2013 (as reported by USA Today), the National Coffee Association concluded that 83 percent of adults in the United States drink coffee — a 10 percent jump from the previous year.

If you want to be a part of the java magic and grab you discounted beverage to celebrate the holiday, head to one of these places. Or all of them. I won't judge. We're talking about coffee, people.
