NO FREE COFFEE, BUT...

Starbucks will not be celebrating International Coffee Day by giving away free coffee, but will instead use its menu boards for to shed light on the role of coffee farmers, and bring awareness to the challenges they face, including coffee leaf rust and climate change.

On its website it explains why: "Instead of the traditional menu boards, participating Starbucks stores in the United States will showcase the good that comes from every cup of coffee through Sunday, October 1."

Burger King and Busy Bee have also decided to do something different this year, by donating 100 percent of every cup of coffee purchased September 29 to the Red Cross for Hurricane Maria relief.

Tomorrow is #NationalCoffeeDay- this year our Burger Kings and Busy Bees will bee doing something different. See the attached flyer! pic.twitter.com/NTBJLkh7sJ
