Costa was founded by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa in 1971. Just 1% of the world’s production of coffee is good enough for us to choose from. Only the very best coffee available can go into creating the unique taste and aroma of our Mocha Italia blend.
Costa Coffee was the first coffee shop chain to commit to sourcing beans from Rainforest Alliance (RFA) Certified farms. All Costa coffee comes from 100% RFA certified farms. Costa was the first coffee chain to control the whole coffee making process from start to finish – we source, store, blend, roast, grind and pour all our own coffee. No one else is involved.
Costa is expanding at pace internationally – at present the company has more than 2,000 stores in 25 countries:Bahrain, Bulgaria, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Hungary, India, Jordan, Kuwait, Latvia, Lebanon, Montenegro, Oman, Portugal, Poland, Qatar, Republic of Ireland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Syria, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
The Costa Foundation was set up in 2006 to give something back to the communities within the countries from which Costa sources its coffee beans. The Costa Foundation works with an independent charity partner, Charities Trust, and is operating under the auspices of Charities Trust’s registered charity number 327489.
Costa is part of the Whitbread family of brands.Less...
