The new home of Costa Coffee
Fast forward nearly forty years, as Costa Coffee continued to expand across London, the UK and eventually the globe, we needed to find another new home to accommodate demand once again.
In early 2017, after two years of construction, we opened our doors to a brand-new state-of-the-art roastery in Basildon, Essex.
Our roastery is one of the biggest roasteries in Europe and allows us to produce 45,000 tonnes of coffee a year, quadrupling our coffee roasting capacity compared to our previous home in Lambeth.
Not just content with being the biggest, our roastery is also one of the most sustainable buildings in the world and we responsibly source all our raw coffee beans from 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms, where they are then ready to be transported to Tilbury Docks, Essex, located just 14 miles away from the Costa Coffee Roastery!
