You Can Get A Free Costa Coffee From The Express Machines Today
Whether you're an Americano, cappuccino or latte lover, your prayers have been answered for one day only - and that day happens to be here.
That's right, you're entitled to a free cup of coffee today (1 October) from one of the Costa Express coffee machines that can be found in many supermarkets and petrol stations.
There will be over 8,500 Costa Express machines across the country where coffee enthusiasts (or those giving it a whirl for the first time - what better excuse?) will be able to serve themselves a cup and won't even have to put their hands in their pockets.
You'll be able to choose from classics such as Americano, latte, espresso or cappuccino. Hot chocolate and delicious syrups are also on the menu, so consumers can personalise their drinks to their tastes. This just gets better and better.
Express machines don't take money so you can make your trip a quick one, up until 00.15 tomorrow (2 October 2019). Probably for the best if you don't absolutely hammer it though...
It wouldn't be completely unreasonable to think that there's a catch behind the move from Costa but the company is simply trying to encourage people to sign up to its 'Coffee Club' app.
When purchasing your free drink, make sure you remember to scan the app - everyone that does so on Tuesday will be entered into a prize draw. The top prize is free Costa Coffees for a whole year.

Managing Director, Scott Martin at Costa Express said: "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.
"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."
