FORT MYERS, Fla. (Sept. 25, 2017) –Bennett’s Fresh Roast will celebrate 2017’s National Coffee Day with free coffee.

On Friday, Sept. 29, 2016, from 6 to 10 a.m., Bennett’s will offer a free 12-ounce Sumatra Mandehling Estate coffee, while supplies last. 

Bennett’s is known as the premier in-shop coffee roaster in Southwest Florida. They skillfully roast their coffee in micro batches as soon as the day before it’s ground, brewed and served, avoiding off flavors like bitterness and rancidity so often present in coffee roasted by less experienced roasters.


National Coffee Day is celebrated annually on September 29. People across the United States celebrate one of the most beloved morning beverages on this day. There are many legendary accounts of how coffee first came to be but the earliest credible evidence of either coffee drinking or the knowledge of the coffee tree appears in the middle of the 15th century in the SUFI monasteries around Mokha in Yemen.  It was here where coffee seeds were first roasted and brewed, similarly to how it is prepared today.  Yemeni traders brought coffee back to their homeland from Ethiopia and began to cultivate the seed.


Bennett’s Fresh Roast has prided itself on its fresh-from-scratch donuts made daily. In addition to fresh roasted coffee and hand-cut-from-scratch donuts, Bennett’s also offers fresh desserts from Grissinger’s own recipe book including praline bread pudding and lemon bars, giving area residents an alternative for afternoon treats. It also features packaged whole bean or ground coffees, breakfast muffins, oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches. On the weekends, Bennett’s Strata (a layered baked breakfast dish) is a regular sellout. Tea lovers may choose from a large variety of Harney & Sons Fine Teas. Lunch offerings, including paninis, soups, sandwiches, three signature salads and Bennett’s  ‘Lobster Roll’, ‘Chicken & Donut’ and ‘Donut Dog,’ are available Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Bennett’s is located at 2011 Bayside Parkway and is open Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.
