Costa is part of the Whitbread family of brands. Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa founded costa in 1971. Costa's in-store baristas are all coached in the art of coffee making at the company's unique Costa Coffee Academy based at its own roastery in Lambeth, London.
Costa has won the award for Best International Franchise Operator 2007. Costa has been voted as one of the strongest UK brands by experts and consumers and has been awarded 'Superbrand' status.
Costa set up a registered charity (no.327489) in 2006 called 'The Costa Foundation' to give something back to the communities within the countries from which Costa sources its coffee beans.
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 espresso 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.
To serve the best coffee in the true Italian style, we focus on quality control at every stage of the coffee making process from bean to cup. Unlike any other coffee company in the UK, we have our own roastery to ensure our unique blend is perfect every time.
