Franchise - COSTA

Description of franchise system

An ethical premium coffee experience

Costa Coffee has worked long and hard to create our famous Italia Mocha blend. But, we've created more than just a unique coffee experience. Costa Coffee stores are warm places, where everyone feels welcome immediately. Costa Coffee is simply different than the ordinary coffee shop.

The Costa Coffee experience is completed by our passionate baristas. We're proud of our authentic coffees and our skilled and professional staff. What separates Costa Coffee from the competition is that customers can enjoy a perfect cup of premium coffee, every time they visit us. Every single coffee bean that we use at Costa is Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means that we actively support coffee farmers in third world countries.

Our coffee arrives from Africa, South and Central America, and the Far East. But, we do more than that. Our milk originates from our own, happy cow crowd. Our Costa coffee machines use 30% less energy than conventional machines.

And our Costa Coffee cups are made from certified pulp, which can be recycled more widely than conventional pulp. Costa Coffee is successfully serving high quality coffee for nearly forty years now. We have been the fist coffee chain in the UK, that took over the control for its complete production.
