Java, joe, bean juice — whatever you call it, coffee is one of the world’s favorite drinks. And millions of American drinkers purchase their morning, midday or evening rocket fuel from shops, bakeries and cafes.

The cost quickly adds up, but — fortunately — you don’t have to pay for every cup.

Here are several places to score free coffee — or coffee-related freebies — right now, or any time of the year.
