WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Krispy Kreme Doughnuts announced that it will spread the joy of National Coffee Day over an entire weekend, offering guests one free cup of coffee each day, Friday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 1.

Customers can enjoy any sized hot brewed or small iced premium blend coffee for free at participating Krispy Kreme shops across the United States and Canada.

“For the first time, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is giving National Coffee Day a new name – National Coffee Weekend,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Marketing Officer of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. “That means more opportunities, more choices and more fun. With three days to try our doughnut-worthy coffee for free, guests can enjoy hot brewed, iced or both!”

Krispy Kreme’s coffee is designed to be the perfect complement to its freshly-made Original Glazed® doughnuts and other treats – a combination that’s deliciously inseparable. During National Coffee Weekend, customers can select from Krispy Kreme’s premium Smooth or Rich blend hot brewed coffee or enjoy a small iced coffee of their choice, all made from 100 percent Arabica beans and brewed fresh all day long.

Lightly roasted with a subtle blend of Central and South American beans, the Smooth blend is crafted to produce a smooth, balanced body for easy drinking and a naturally sweet finish. A bold alternative, Krispy Kreme’s Rich blend is an aromatic and flavorful medium-bodied blend, creating a lush, well-rounded flavor and satisfying finish. Guests can also enjoy Krispy Kreme’s iced coffee, which is available in a variety of premium flavors ranging from vanilla to caramel.
