Want to bag yourself a free coffee AND a chance to find true love ? Best get yourself along to a newly-opened coffee shop in London.
“Espresso Yourself” is opening up in Shoreditch, east London (where else?) and teaming up with dating service Match.com. It’s offering lovelorn singles a free cuppa with the profile picture of one of six potential dates printed onto it.
At this café, when patrons receive their drinks, they will see the face of a single person 3D printed onto the milk foam. If you’re looking for more than just a pretty face, don’t worry because facts about the person will appear on the side of the coffee cup, as well. The cup will also include a link to the person’s Match.com profile, so if you’re enjoying the taste of your coffee and liking the looks of their profile, you can head online to connect and set up a date.
If you happen to see a potential match IRL while you’re at the cafe, there’s also an option to print your own face on a coffee and give it away.
“We’re encouraging singles to have the confidence to be bold and put themselves out there in a way they hadn’t before. At the same time, we wanted to make finding a date as simple as ordering a coffee, so we’ve teamed up with six of our members to help make it happen.” explained Vicki Burtt, a dating expert from Match.
