With temperatures in the high 80s, we're forecasting a huge increase in your iced coffee budget.

Stocking a box of cold brew in your fridge is never a bad idea, but going out for a fresh cup of ice cold coffee never hurts either.

CUPS, the coffee subscription app which boasts awareness and business to NYC's independent coffee stores, is celebrating its first full year in the city with the best anniversary gift of all: free coffee!

All you have to do is download the CUPS app and check which of its partner coffee shops in Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn will be giving out free coffee each day. You can then select which type of coffee and size you want, show your phone to the barista -- don't forget to tip! -- and enjoy all that free java.

CUPS also offers subscription coffee plans and discount pre-paid coffee packages to bring you back to all those great independent coffee shops you discover this week.

 

Happy Birthday CUPS and thanks for all the free coffee!
