International Coffee Day: how drivers can claim a FREE drink

International Coffee Day free costa

It’s International Coffee Day today (October 1 2019) and a popular coffee vendor is offering free hot drinks for drivers. Here’s how to claim yours.

If you’re at a petrol station with a Costa vending machine, be sure to take advantage of this promotion. All hot drinks are free from these machines for one day only.

“We’re so confident that once you’ve tried a cup from Costa Express, it’ll fast become a regular part of your routine. So for one day only, we’re giving away a free drink to all,” said Scott Martin, MD of Costa Express.

8,500 express coffee locations

Tesco, Esso and Shell are three of the UK’s fuel vendors to feature these machines. In total, Costa says there are 8,500 Express machines across the UK. The deal will end at a quarter past midnight on Wednesday October 2.  

“The coffee industry is booming with no sign of our love affair with the drink slowing. It’s estimated 95 million cups are consumed a day. However, for years, self-serve drinks machines have carried a certain stigma,” continued Martin.

“We at Costa Express 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.”
