September 28 is National Coffee Day and 7-Eleven stores across the country are planning to help patrons get their daily cup free of charge.
Stores are celebrating the day with their own "National CofFree Day" on this election year dubbed "7-Election 2012." Customers can drop by any of the 6,000 participating 7-Eleven stores from 6 to 10 a.m. on Friday to get a free cup of hot coffee, latte or cappuccino while supplies last.
Local 7-Elevens can be found at 602 Laurel St.,and 3036 Portola Dr. (See map below).
7-Eleven also wants folks to vote for their favorite presidential candidate and look at the unofficial poll for each state via their site.
The national celebration of the caffeinated beverage follows a 2011 Harvard University study that found that coffee reduces the risk of depression for women. Women who drink two or three cups of caffeinated coffee per day lowered their risk of depression by 15 percent. Those who drank four or more cups every day had a 20 percent lower risk.
