Costa Coffee Menu
Costa Coffee is a chain of coffee shops, selling coffee, tea, and hot/cold food. You’ll find on the menu every type of coffee that you can think of from a flat white to a caffé latte, cortado to espresso. If you like a chocolate twist to your drink, you can order a mocha or hot chocolate. If tea is more your thing, you’ll be able to order traditional tea, decaffeinated or a range of herbal flavours such as green tea, earl grey, citrus and mint tea. If you prefer your drink to be a little more unique, there is a great range of specialty drinks such as a chai latte, caramel cappuccino, or a babyccino- steamed milk with chocolate and marshmallows- for the little ones. If it is one of the rare hot days in Britain, Costa Coffee has an extensive range of iced drinks such as the caramel creamy cooler, red superday smoothie or a tropical fruit cooler. If you’re feeling hungry, you can treat yourself to a hot panini, cheesy toastie, sandwich, wrap or salad. To finish off, indulge yourself in a decadent pastry, muffin, cake or tray bake.
Costa Coffee Prices
The prices of Costa Coffee products can vary depending on which size drink you get, whether you sit in or take away and the type of outlet that you visit. It’s usually £2-3+ for a coffee depending on which drink you choose and the size of the cup.
Costa Coffee Beans
Costa Coffee sources 100% of its beans from farms which have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. By only sourcing from such farms, it means all the coffee is sourced from farms which practice sustainability and are subject to annual checks to ensure this.
Coffee originally comes from coffee cherries which are dried to become green coffee, before they are sorted and stored then shipped. The coffee reaches Costa’s roasting factory in London, which has been active for 40 years, with each batch taste tested to make sure it’s good enough. The coffee is made from a balance of Arabica and Robusta beans.
Costa Coffee Locations
Costa Coffee shops have been designed to be comfortable, with different seating from sofas to small tables so that you can relax. They are also a great meeting point for the community, with some coffee shops running a ‘Costa Book Club’ where you can take a book in exchange for a charitable donation.
Costa Coffee Jobs
Costa Coffee baristas are extensively trained to ensure that they know how to create the perfect coffee. If you’re interested in a more operational role, regional team members help to develop great coffee experiences consistently across their region.

About Costa Coffee
Costa Coffee was founded by two Italian brothers, who opened a coffee roastery in London in 1971. Originally, the business supplied local caterers, before opening a store in 1978 to sell coffee from. By 1995, there were over 40 stores across the UK and it was acquired by Whitbread, a hotel and coffee shop parent company.
By 2009, Costa was celebrating the opening of its 1000th store in Cardiff. Internationally, there are over 1,200 stores in 31 countries- the first international store opened in Dubai in 1999.
Costa Coffee’s chief coffee taster, Gennaro Pelliccia has his tongue insured for £10 million. This figure is higher than the insurance policy for Bruce Springsteen’s voice, but less than David Beckham’s legs.
