Apps That Prove the Extent of My Coffee Addiction

Surround yourself with people who make your soul feel caffeinated. - karen salmansohn.

If you're a self confessed coffee addict like myself, you'll understand the importance of always having a mug at hand, cafe's nearby and a weekly allowance to stay fuelled. Since I've had my new phone I've seen an array of apps build up, dedicated solely to fulfilling this need (laugh it up, guys).


I know this doesn't need much explaining but it's surprising how many people don't know that Costa have an app. Not only can you scan the app to earn rewards (more coffee? yes pls) and add the barcode to your apple wallet but you can also search the area for nearby branches which is so useful to me when I travel for work as much as I do.


I'll be the first to admit that Starbucks is incredibly overrated, sorry not sorry. However, no matter where I am I can guarantee there's a Starbucks near by and if that means buying overpriced coffee but earning rewards, count me in. Coffee tastes better when it's free, you feel me?

Best Coffee

This app is a new one for me but I've instantly fallen in love with it. Not only is the layout of it incredibly pleasing but it's super handy when I'm travelling and looking for a good coffee place with little time to spare. All the cafe's listed have been tested and approved so you never have to worry about paying an arm and a leg for bad coffee. I love to favourite the coffee shops that I rave about and save the ones that I'd like to visit.


The last of the reward apps is the Greggs app. The reason this one has made the list is because Greggs is my go-to when it comes to cheap coffee (beside Prett, of course, because 99p for a coffee- hello)and the rewards on here are insane. I got my first coffee FREE just for installing the app and also a bottle of Coke Zero. Can't go wrong, really. I was also a huge fan of collecting the stamps from their reward scheme where you'd buy 10 coffees and get the 11th free. On the app, however, you only need to buy 7 and then your 8th is free. Amazing. I also have an allowance setup on the app where I can send money over to the account straight from my bank account and so always have money set aside for caffeine. Priorities, eh?


The final app to make the cut today is an app called Coffitivity. If you're like me and do a lot of online work you'll understand the importance of a productive work space. This could be as simple as working from a desk instead of your bed or as dedicated as heading over to a shared office work space. For me, I also felt most inspired at a coffee shop. Sipping on a good cup of coffee, hooking up to the free WiFi. There's something about the sounds of chatter from other busy people that motivates me. Sometimes, for whatever reason, I haven't been able to access a coffee shop so failing this I'd work from my usual set up at home and use the Coffitivity app. I'd hook my phone up to some speakers and use one of the installed sound clips of a busy coffee shop. Don't knock it before you've tried it.

I have many more reward type apps dedicated to coffee shops but I only shared a few of my favourites that I know other people may use and benefit from as much as I do.

Ah. I'm so blessed to have my own corner of the internet where it's semi acceptable to write an entire post about apps dedicated to coffee...
