The Costa Experience
Costa started in London in 1971, when the Costa brothers began to sell their coffee to local caterers. Their business expanded to delicatessens, and eventually the pair opened their own coffee shop.
The chain has only grown sense then, spreading rapidly through the UK. They’ve been voted as the UK’s favorite coffee shop for three years in a row in the Allegra Strategies survey.
Despite forty years of success, Costa prides themselves on slow-roasting their coffee beans the same way the Costa brothers did all those years ago.
