The coffee will be available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays for the next two weeks across the city.
The Minor Figures Jimny is the symbol to look out for. According to the press release, they’ll be popping up at “college campuses, popular swim spots, and city centre locations. Keep an eye out for Jiminy if you’re in “Donnybrook, Rathmines, Stoneybatter or and Seapoint” this week.
The kewl dudes on the international oat milk scene haven’t said exactly when and where they’ll be cropping up, so keep an eye on their socials for the updates. That said if you want a guaranteed free coffee, head down to Mister Magpie in Ballsbridge tomorrow and opt for Oat M*lk when you order.
Minor Figures say their Barista Oat is “designed specifically to pair with speciality coffee. Its flavour complementing rather than hiding the unique flavour profile of each espresso”. This is in conjunction with “Minor Figures Freedays” which are run all over the world. On these days, the brand foots the bill for any Oat M*lk coffees sold by partnering with independent cafes.
Minor Figures has recently expanded their Oat M*lk range with the addition of Everyday Oat and Everyday Oat Light. Non-GMO and 100% vegan, it contains only naturally occurring sugars. It’s also fortified with calcium, iodine, and vitamins B2, B12, and D. Made with less oil, resulting in a lower fat content and lighter product, Everyday Oat Light is the low-fat alternative for your cereals, smoothies, and everything in between.
Everyday Oat and Everyday Oat Light are now available in Tesco and Nourish. Barista Oat range is available in stockists nationwide, including Tesco, Dunnes Stores, and SuperValu, as well as Independent Health Food stores such as Holland & Barrett, Nourish, Evergreen, Fresh, and Donnybrook Fair.
You can also find Minor Figures being served up in speciality coffee shops such as Indigo & Cloth.
