Costa grew from a coffee roastery, which was set up in the Lambeth area of London in 1971.
This supplied caterers and coffee shops in the area with the slow roasted mocha Italian blend that was Costa’s speciality.
Bruno and Sergio Costa were the brothers who set the company up, soon developed their vision, and their first retail outlet was opened in 1978 in Vauxhall Bridge Road, London.
As Fran Drescher would say, “Once you wake up and smell the coffee, it’s hard to go back to sleep.” That is exactly what happens when you walk into one of the Costa coffee outlets. The smell of strong brewing coffee welcomes you in and it puts a smile on any coffee lover’s face.
