Free caffeine will be flowing across New York from Harlem to Fort Greene and we will be partying it up in true CUPS style. If you have a CUPS plan then it won’t subtract a cup when you drink and if you don’t have a plan then you are still in luck – just download the app and use it to purchase drinks at participating locations. We believe in free coffee for all, so as long as you have CUPS app then you are golden! We will announce the daily participating coffee shops on social media from May 11th- Sunday, May 17th at 7am so make sure to follow us to find out where you can get your free coffee!

Where: All over the city (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens) How: First, DOWNLOAD CUPS! Every day, CUPS will announce on social media a list of about 15-20 CUPS locations that will be FREE when you pay via CUPS app. The list of coffee shops will change daily, so be sure to stay tuned! When: May 11th at 6am – Sunday, May 17th at midnight Who: Anyone with CUPS app on their phone!
