As the temperatures continue to soar, more and more of us are turning to iced coffee to keep us cool and caffeinated. And whether you love a milky latte or a punchier Americano, this Friday you can get your fix for free, courtesy of Pret A Manger.
Yes that’s right – between 10am and 11am on Friday 19 July, your local Pret will give you an iced latte, Americano or cup of its new Cold Brew totally free of charge, without the need to purchase anything else in store.
Briony Raven, Head of Coffee and Packaging at Pret, said of the deal: ‘Given we are set to see some sunshine this week, we wanted to ease our customers into the weekend with an iced coffee on us.
‘Our organic espresso is just as great served cold, over ice, as it is hot, while our new Cold Brew is delicious, full-bodied and velvety smooth. It combines a milk chocolate sweetness, with a mellow citrus acidity and a clean, refreshing finish, making it perfect for the summer months.’
If you don’t consume dairy, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can ask for your coffee to be prepared with alternative milk options to ensure that all dietary requirements are catered for. Plus, all of the brand’s iced coffees are served in a recyclable cup with a paper straw, to make them as eco-friendly as possible (well, if you don’t have your KeepCup in your bag, that is).
So, how do you go about claiming this glorious freebie? All you need to do is head to Pret’s social media channels (@Pret on Twitter; Pret A Manger on Facebook and @Pret on Instagram) on 18 July to find out the ‘password’. Once you have it, you can visit a branch the next day between 10am and 11am to share it with the staff, who will whip up your refreshingly cold coffee for free. Happy Friday!
