Costa Express Machines Are Giving Away Free Coffees For Everyone Next Tuesday
One of life's simple pleasures is coffee, and we all know that everything tastes better when it's free, which is why you're going to thank Costa next Tuesday. You guessed it, they're giving away free coffees.
Yes, the coffeehouse has announced that all of its Costa Express machines across the UK (sadly excluding Northern Ireland) will be completely free to use next Tuesday 1st October.
Customers will be able to use any of more than 8,500 participating machines to grab themselves an Americano, Latte, Espresso and Cappuccino, or hot chocolate on the house.
You'll be able to tap away at the sophisticated touch screen to order your coffee, where can you also personalise your coffee if you like by adding extra shots or syrups to your drink.
Coffee lovers can grab their free cuppa joe from 00:15am (or whenever the shop with an Express machine in opens) on Tuesday 1st October 2019 until 00:15 on Wednesday 2nd October 2019.
Express machines can often be found in supermarkets such as Tesco and Sainsbury's.
The coffeehouse also recommends people sign up to their Costa Coffee Club app. Anyone who has the app and bags their free coffee next Tuesday will be entered into a draw to win free coffee for a year. Just scan the app when prompted at the Express machine.
So why the kind gesture, Costa? The company's Managing Director Scott Martin said its all to do with changing the perceptions of instant coffee machines.
"For years, self-serve drinks machines have carried a certain stigma," he said.
"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."
We're prepared to put aside our preconceptions for this one. Cheers Costa!
