Customers are being given the chance to nab a free coffee machine worth $99 when they buy coffee capsules.
The offer ends on September 1, so get in before then to get your free machine when you purchase six packets of 16 Lavazza capsules for $11 each.
This means customers get a saving of $33 and have almost 100 pods to use as well.
Customers took to the Markdown Addicts Australia Facebook group to share the deal.
"Oh my goodness. Nice coffee too," one user commented. "Go go go," another encouraged.

"Wow cheap!!" another added, someone
One fan commented, "I honestly love mine so easy to use and easy to keep clean."
Others offered advice about the pods, "I have this machine and love the coffee. Lavazza is great! I only buy the pods on special usually either $7 or $8 box. I just buy enough for four to five weeks. At full price they are a bit pricey."
Lockdown item flying off the shelves
Aldi revealed earlier this year their coffee brand Lazzio was in unprecedented demand when shoppers began to stock up on essentials, with supermarket and supplier struggling to keep the item in stock.
The supplier is Victorian coffee brand Black Bag Roasters, who come under Aussie company the Nomad Coffee Group, a business who claims they were saved by the spike in Aldi sales, as cafes and restaurants also stocking their coffee were forced to shut up shop.
The beans won Gold at the world’s largest coffee roaster’s event back in 2018, and were a clear winner for workers stuck making their own coffees at home.
CEO of the Aussie group Craig Dickson has revealed that the company’s sales from Aldi jumped more than 50% during the lockdown period, a life-saver after they initially feared major losses from the pandemic.
“Aldi went bananas for about six weeks,” he told industry publication Smart Company.
“There were people who used to be sales reps doing deliveries … others normally in customer service ended up in the packing line.”
The CEO told News.com.au the turnaround came after they were forced to hold emergency meetings after business plummeted in the wake of the shutdown.
“I think we had our first emergency meeting on around the 12th of March where we started taking corrective action,” he told the publication.
“Our traditional business declined but Aldi sales were up more than 50 per cent for probably a six to seven-week period.”
Mr Dickson admitted that had it not been for the booming Aldi business the company would have had to consider standing down some permanent staff after letting casuals go.
He told Smart Company that initially half the businesses they supplied shut up shop, and without Aldi’s surge they would have been in serious trouble.
