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.

But you don’t have to wait for free coffee. Here are 10 places to score free coffee — or coffee-related freebies — right now, or any time of the year.
