With over 1300 coffee shops across the UK and more than 1000 internationally, Costa is a global success story with a growing network of retail sites. In addition to our Costa-owned shops, we also operate both corporate and individual franchises: Corporate, Individual, International Franchising. Mocha Italia is the name Sergio and Bruno Costa gave to their own special blend of coffee beans 40 years ago. It's a unique blend as it manages to combine the sweetness, bitterness and body needed to make the perfect cup of coffee. As for the blend itself, that's a closely guarded secret, but you can enjoy a cup of its distinctive flavour and a warm Italian welcome at any of our Costa coffee shops.
