Free Coffee, Anyone?

I love coffee, but sometimes a good cup is hard to find, especially if you don't want to make it yourself or spend a small fortune. One place that I think makes a great cup of joe is McDonald's. Ever since they started brewing Green Mountain Newman's Own Organic coffee, they are my go-to place on Saturday mornings before work.

There was a webcast earlier this week giving the story behind the partnership between McDonald's, Green Mountain Coffee, and Newman's Own. Nell Newman, daughter of the late philanthropist, Paul Newman, started the organic division of the Newman's Own brand in 1992 and was a part of the webcast. The webcast is available for viewing here.

This week until Saturday, September 29th, National Coffee Day, McDonald's is giving away free coffee. If you miss out this week,  you can get great coffee in ANY SIZE for only $1 throughout the year! 

There is even an opportunity to win free coffee for a year! Here's how to enter!

The three ways to enter:
1. Follow on Twitter @McD_Maine and tweet about it using hashtag #FreeCoffee4ME
2. Post a picture with a cup of McDonald's Newman's Own Organics coffee on Twitter or Facebook
3. Take a quick survey here

Good luck and enjoy some McDonald's Newman's Own Organics coffee!

  1. gotta love coffee - but I'm a coffee snob. Will it stand up to my k-cups? I guess I'll have to try it out!

  2. What an irony that I now work for Green Mountain Coffee and do NOT drink coffee. Ever. Fortunately, they have other drinks that I do like :) What great advertisement, thanks!
