New England Coffee turns 100 this year, and it will bestow free coffee upon you to celebrate.

On Thursday, September 29—incidentally, National Coffee Day—the Boston-born company will park its “Mug Mobile” in Dewey Square to hand out free New England Coffee samples and commemorative merchandise. Caffeine fiends can also enter to win a $100 Visa gift card, and more daily prizes from September 30 to October 21.

In honor of its centennial, New England Coffee is also putting up a mural in South Station painted entirely with its espresso roast. The piece was created by artist Gerard Tonti, who is know for using coffee and tea in his work. It will be displayed in South Station until November, when it will be moved to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center until early next year.

Boston is one of many stops on the coffee car’s Extraordinary People Campaign, a New England tour celebrating the coffee drinkers that helped the company reach 100 years of business. New England Coffee will be set up in Dewey Square from 7 a.m.-6 p.m., so don’t miss your chance to stop by and fuel up.

But NEC’s birthday party isn’t the only place you can grab a discounted cup of java on National Coffee Day. Breakfast and lunch at Davio’s To-Go Shop come with a free cup of its custom Fazenda Coffee blend until 4 p.m. on Thursday. You can also get a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts hot coffee for 66 cents on the caffeine-laden holiday.

And/or, start your morning at Dig Inn’s new Back Bay spot, where you can snag free coffee from 7-11 a.m. every weekday until Friday, October 21.
