The Costa Story – Bruno & Sergio Costa set up their famous coffee roastery in Lambeth, London in 1971, supplying local caterers and italian coffee shops with an exciting coffee, slow-roasted the italian way. People couldn’t get enough of it and by 1978 the first Costa expresso bar opened in Vauxhall Bridge Road in London. To this day we still use the same method of slow-roasting our coffee beans, serving the brothers’ authentic blend of 6 Arabica beans to 1 Robusta in 500 coffee shops all over the world.
The Perfect Cup – Some people would call our persuit of the perfect cup of coffee, an obsession. Do we care? No, because nothing less will do. Our italian master roasters (only 3 in the UK) spend their lives selecting the finest beans and roasteing them to perfection. To prepare our coffee with less care and attention to detail would be sacrilege.
A favourite destination for all coffee lovers, Costa prides itself on real coffee made by real people. Every Costa barista is unique – not only expert at making the perfect coffee with speed and precision, but each bringing their own flair and creativity to every cup they make. Drop into Costa and get to know your Costa baristas for yourself, while you rest amid stylish modern décor. Indulge in handcrafted coffee, hot chocolate, teas and ice cold drinks, and enjoy a wide range of hot and cold sandwiches, cakes and pastries as well as FREE WIFI internet access.”
