PUT the kettle on and raise a mug to celebrate International Coffee Day.
We don’t really need an excuse to get our daily coffee hit, but it can grind a hole in your finances. Buying just one coffee every working day at around £2.50 a cup adds up to more than £50 a month.

But you can mocha the most of your money with my piping hot tips . . .
BEAN FOR YOUR BUCK: A survey by Vouchercloud.co.uk found Greggs Americano gives the most caffeine for your money, at 140 milligrams per £, followed by McDonalds Latte (122g per £). Download the Greggs Rewards app because it gives you a free hot drink — it will appear in your rewards section when you sign in.
MORE REWARDS: Caffe Nero is the best value rewards scheme on the high street as you get a stamp for every coffee you buy and an extra one every time you use a reusable mug. Pick up nine and get your tenth free. New customers who download the Costa Coffee Club app receive 100 bonus points, that’s £1 towards your next coffee. Starbucks has a similar scheme, once you’ve collected 15 stars, you’ll get a free one.
BRING YOUR OWN: I’ve mentioned the great Caffe Nero deal but with a travel mug, enjoy 50p off at Pret and 25p at Starbucks to start with.
At Pret, pick up a filter coffee in your mug and, with the discount, it will be just 49p.
KEEP IT SWEET: If you’ve got a sweet tooth, forking out on those extra syrup shots can pricey. Instead, buy your own syrups and keep them at your desk. A four-pack syrup collection from B&M is £2.49, down from £2.99, far cheaper than 50p for single shots.
HOME BREW: For when you need instant coffee, remember to shop around. Poundland sell large jars of classic roast for £1.
For something a bit more special, you’ll need to invest in a coffee machine.
B&M sell Bosch Tassimo machines for £39.99, down from £49 and you can get 96 Aldi Latte coffee pod capsules for £14.94, which works out at 16p a cup.

TO save cash on my daily coffee fix I like the glass reusable KeepCup – but Primark’s version is just as good and lets me save even more cash.
