London, born and mixed since 1971
We have more than 45 years of experience in making the best quality coffee. From revolutionary methods to unforgettable successes that make our history as unique as the taste of our coffee.
But first, let's start with what every good story should look like. First.
The Costa Coffee story began in 1971 when Sergio and Bruno arrived in London with a burning desire to make great tasting coffee part of everyday life. By installing a small roaster on Fenchurch Street, they committed to making the best quality coffee.
It was here that the Costa brothers blindly tasted 112 coffee variations before tasting one good enough to be our Signature Blend. They called it 'Mocha Italia' and it remains our exclusive blend to this day.
