If you’re struggling to wake up today we’ve got some good news for you - Costa is giving away a free coffee or hot drink to everyone in the UK.
That’s right, today, Tuesday October 1st, the coffee chain is giving out free drinks at its Costa Express machines nationwide.
There are over 8,500 Express machines taking part in the offer, and they’re usually found in petrol stations, convenience stores, leisure centres and supermarkets.
They serve up a range of classic coffees and hot drinks, and you can grab an Americano, Espresso, Latte, Cappuccino, Hot Chocolate, while the newer machines also have Flat Whites, Cortados and Flavoured Milks.
Costa's Managing Director, Scott Martin, said:
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.
He added: "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."
All you need to do is head to a participating Costa Express machine in the UK - excluding Northern Ireland - at some point before 00:15 on Wednesday October 2nd.
