Java. Joe. Wakey juice. The brown magic water that turns hangovers into productive mornings and makes early starts just bearable. We're talking about coffee (obviously), and if you worship the blessed bean, you’ll be stoked to know that one of the best coffee dispensaries in Sydney is giving out free cups of the stuff this afternoon. From 3-4pm today, The Grounds of Alexandria will be putting all coffees on the house to celebrate their 100k milestone on Instagram (you guys love their snaps as much as you love their coffee it seems).

If the changing seasons have made you blue, head down to the Grounds for a mid-afternoon pick me up — you'll be able to take it away completely gratis (and feel free to sub in soy or almond milk if needed). There’s a few conditions, though: you'll need to follow @thegrounds on Instagram (as if you’re not already) and order your takeaway coffee from The Garden bar. And in order to prevent the caffeine jitters, there’s a limit of one per customer.

If you arrive a little earlier and get into the cafe before the kitchen closes at 3pm, kick off autumn right with a pumpkin salad with red quinoa, radicchio and pine nuts ($11.50) or go balls to the walls with a slow braised lamb shoulder wrap with chilli yoghurt dressing and slaw ($11). Then head out for your coffee to stave off hibernation.

Grab your free coffee from The Grounds of Alexandria, 7A, 2 Huntley Street, Alexandria, between 3-4pm today, Tuesday, March 1. Terms and conditions apply, read 'em here.
