To mark International Coffee Day on Tuesday, 1st October 2019, Costa Coffee have today announced that they will be giving away free drinks from any of their 8,500 Costa Express coffee machines, for the entire day.
You do not get something for nothing very often, but next Tuesday you can get a free coffee, Cappuccino, Espresso, Latte, Americano, or even a hot chocolate. As the Costa Express machines will not be taking money, or coins. If you like to add syrup to your drinks, you are in luck, as there will also be no charge for personalising your drinks, so you can get your coffee exactly how you like it.
With more than 8,500 Costa Express machines participating in this offer across the UK (not Northern Ireland, sorry!), you should be able to find one near you and take advantage of this great celebration of International Coffee Day. The offer is available from 00:15 on Tuesday 1st October and runs through till 00:15 on Wednesday 2nd October.

If this news brought a smile to your caffeinated face (or decaffeinated, we don’t judge), there is more! If you scan your Costa Coffee app when you get your free drink, you will automatically be entered into a free prize draw to win free Costa Coffee for a whole year. Talk about the cherry, on top of the icing! So make sure you have downloaded and signed up to Costa’s app before the 1st October.
Explaining why Costa Coffee have decided to be so generous, Scott Martin (Managing Director) 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!
Scott went on to say:
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.
In fact, Costa Coffee are so confident that you will love their Costa Express coffees, they are prepared to put their money where their mouth is.
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.
So there you have it, have you had a coffee from a Costa Express recently, or any coffee machine for that matter? No, well maybe they have changed, maybe they are great, and with Costa giving you the opportunity to try for free in celebration of International Coffee Day on Tuesday 1st October, it is not going to cost you anything to find out.
You literally have nothing to lose!
P.S. Don’t forget to scan your Costa app, you just might win free coffee for a year as well!
