London, born and blended since 1971
The Costa Coffee story began back in 1971 when Sergio and Bruno Costa arrived in London with the dream to make great tasting coffee a part of everyday life.
They set up a small roastery in Frenchurch Street and embarked on the journey of crafting the finest quality coffee.
It was here the Costa brothers blind-tested 112 variations of coffee before arriving at their favourite one. They named it ‘Mocha Italia’ and it remains our signature blend to this day.
From revolutionary methods and commitment to quality to unforgettable successes that have made Costa Coffee so popular across the globe, our story is as unique as our coffee. The commitment to serving great tasting coffee is in our DNA.
