Sharing our obsession in every cup with Malaysians, all the way from the UK
KUALA LUMPUR, 10 October 2019 – Costa Coffee, the second largest coffee chain in the world1, will be going around Klang Valley to share our obsession for coffee with more Malaysians throughout the month of October.
As the United Kingdom’s (UK) favourite coffee shop brand2, we have been brewing our way into the hearts of Malaysians since 2011, serving on-the-go, barista quality coffee through our Costa Express Marlow machines at over 300 locations nationwide.
Founded in 1971 by the Costa brothers – Sergio and Bruno Costa, we believe that great coffee is for everyone. Over the years, our obsessive pursuit for better coffee has pushed us to great lengths and led us to create our signature Mocha Italia Blend after the Costa brothers went through a total of 112 different blends.
Costa’s obsession in providing great coffee is reflected through a stringent selection process, with only 1% of the world’s production deemed good enough. Each batch of beans is personally tasted by our Master of Coffee, Gennaro Pelliccia, who was trained by the Costa brothers themselves. His palate is an important asset to our quality control, so much so that his tongue was once insured for £10 million.
Our Rainforest Alliance Certified beans go through a slow, 18-minute roast that allows the beans to retain its natural oils. The result of this process – our signature smooth and nutty taste with notes of caramel that is loved throughout the world.
Want to know the secret to how our self-serve machines make such good quality drinks? There is a barista hidden in each machine. Okay, we are kidding. Through our spirit of innovation, our Costa Express Marlow machines are able to self-diagnose and shut down for maintenance, if they are not running optimally. Each cup is then crafted using the very same freshly ground Mocha Italia beans and fresh milk which we serve in our stores.
This month, we want to #sharetheobsession with you. Our coffee truck will be bringing the Costa Coffee experience to you by serving our classic latte’s, flat whites and cappuccinos along with other exciting beverage offerings. And best of all? It won’t Cost-a you a cent! If you are a coffee lover or looking for a pick-me-up, follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out where we are serving up our signature drinks within the Klang Valley.
