At Costa Coffee you will find a wide range of hot and cold drinks, classic and baked sandwiches and a large selection of cakes and sweet desserts, led by the famous Costa muffins. Costa Coffee was founded in 1971 in London. It is currently the second largest coffee shop chain in the world, with 3,247 coffee shops in 30 countries. In Costa Coffee cafes, coffee is always prepared by experienced baristas, manually and from freshly ground coffee. Costa has been using a special Mocha Italia Espresso blend for thirty years, a mix of seven different types of coffee beans roasted in a special slow process that guarantees exceptional taste properties. 100% coffee beans are used to prepare the mixture, which come from certified production by the Rainforest Alliance.
