You can get a completely free Costa coffee today.
The national chain has said that today, October 1, it will be giving away free coffee from its Express machines at its 8,500 stores up and down the UK.
You can pick anything from its menu – such as Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte and hot chocolate.
“The coffee industry is booming with no sign of our love affair with the drink slowing, as it’s estimated 95 million cups are consumed a day,” said Scott Martin, managing director at Costa Express.
However, for years, self-serve drinks machines have carried a certain stigma. Freeze-dried coffee, long life milk, clumpy soups and bland hot chocolate were readily stocked in machines across the late nineties and early noughties, so we can imagine how one poor experience is enough to put someone off for life!
“We at Costa Express don’t believe this is acceptable and have worked tirelessly to revolutionise the self-serve experience. Our machines serve the same fresh signature Mocha Italia coffee beans and fresh semi-skimmed milk you would expect in our Costa Coffee stores, so the quality of your experience is never compromised.
“We’re so confident that once you’ve tried a cup from Costa Express that it’ll fast become a regular part of your routine, so for one day only, we’re giving away a free drink to all.”
The offer kicks off at 00:15am on Tuesday October 1 (or whenever your nearest shop with an Express machine opens), ending at 00:15 on Wednesday October 2.
Costa Express machines can be found in locations such as convenience stores and petrol forecourts all across the country – find your nearest machine here .
