HARRISONBURG, Va -- Coffee has its own day for us to recognize its goodness. National Coffee Day is Saturday, but businesses in the Valley are giving away free coffee this week to celebrate.
One coffee shop owner said coffee has become an important part of our culture.
“I get a lot of people from surrounding businesses that come in here. We chitchat, and it's almost like they're family. It's kind of a cool kind of thing to drink your mocha, or latte, or regular-brewed coffee and just chitchat,” said Jeremiah Young, owner of Court Square Coffee in Harrisonburg.
National Coffee Day also celebrates fair trade coffee growers.
