- The National Coffee Day (woo-hoo!). You probably already know that over a third of U.S. workers consumed two or more cups of coffee during the day, and that about 40% of employees say they are less productive without coffee. But what you probably did not know is that you can get a coffee or tea shops joe Wednesday at Dunkin 'Donuts to get, and will be holding a portion of the proceeds of the sale, even donating to Special Olympics.
