Costa Coffee was founded in 1971 when brothers Bruno and Sergio Costa moved to London. As Italians who were spoiled by coffee at home, they didn’t want to give it up in the UK. So they began their dream of opening their own roastery on Fenchurch Street. The “Mocha Italia” was chosen as the signature blend, which became very popular. This coffee was delivered by the famous London cabs to prestigious hotels, including the Ritz.

The next step was to open the first Costa Coffee store in Vauxhall Bridge Road in 1981, with more locations to follow. Costa Coffee was voted the most popular coffee shop in the UK for 13 consecutive years. The takeover by Coca Cola followed in 2019, marking the start of expansion.

Costa Coffee currently operates 3800 stores in 32 countries, plus 8300 self-service units.
