There are 120 free cups of coffee available at each store across Victoria but you’ll have to be quick as the offer is only available while stocks last. To redeem your free coffee, you must make a purchase from the bakery. It’s that simple.

While also providing delicious cakes and sweet treats to give us the sugar-hit we so desperately require, the charm of Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses is that their expertly brewed coffee perfectly pairs with their selection of goodies, making this giveaway that much sweeter.

Whether it’s a slice of cake in the afternoon, or a warm Sausage Roll at lunchtime, Ferguson Plarre’s custom blend of beans will go down a treat, combining single origins from the finest estates (across the bean belt) in Brazil, Ethiopia, India, Guatemala and Tanzania.

Dubbed the ‘Otto’s Espresso’ (named after the founder of the business, Otto Plarre), this cup of java is a rich and full-bodied blend of flavours that provides different people with different sensations. Using a combination of four beans, customers are privy to a diverse and complex flavour profile, with accents of nuts and dark chocolate, and rich, caramel and hazelnut notes to linger on the palate.

With a flavour profile like that, you’re guaranteed good tasting, smooth coffee that will go brilliantly with any of their treats, from a classic jam donut and a chocolate éclair to a French vanilla slice and custard tart.

It’s truly coffee that takes the cake. Pop in for a free coffee in any style you want, from long blacks and soy flat whites to skinny cappuccinos and regular mochas.

Boasting more than 80 stores across Melbourne and Victoria, the free coffee offer makes up just one part of their birthday celebration giveaway, where they’re giving away free treats every Thursday in August.

Already they’ve given away free YoYo Biscuits last week, coffee this week, with more to come including a free jam donut on August 19, and a mouth-watering free cupcake on August 26.

Please note, free items are available in participating stores only. Limited to one item per person with purchase while stocks last.
