    Most of us on the forum will get emails inviting us to complete surveys, have online meetings to hear about a wonderful product or a job offer. I have just received yet another one of these emails, for some software, which ended: 'Do you have time this week for an online meeting, during which...

    Hello new friends I have started dipping a toe in around the edges of your lovely forum for several reasons. One of which is to learn from some of the coffee enthusiasts here about, well, coffee. Today I went into Costa and had an espresso. It didn't taste quite right. I am wondering...

    Oh my. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/costa-coffee-flat-black-launch-americano-twitter-response-a8251901.html Is it April 1st already?

    Hello From Surrey I have joined to learn about bean to cup machines to use with Costa Rainforest Expresso Coffee Beans that I have for sale. I would like it to taste as close to the shop taste as possible but as im starting out want a machine that doesn't cost to much. I am also looking to...
  5. Find a Coffeeshop
    Any decent pit stops from Gretna Green to Ayr via Dumfries? We usually stop off on the M6 before Gretna & I am stuck with a Costa or Starbucks. I refuse to do it again!!

    There is never a good time for this to happen, but for someone to not see Christmas when all they were doing was taking a break is just terrible.

  8. Introductions
    Hello Everyone Thought I'd introduce myself, since I've been spending time reading threads and absorbing (or trying) knowledge. I'm new to the coffee game, although I have spent the last three years getting a coffee from the local Costa Coffee every morning before University. For the last...

    Just a bit of a rant. Why can't my local Costa (located where I work) keep their machines clean ? Why do they need to pull the shots into the same espresso cups(which are then poured into the customers cup) over and over without cleaning them. Dirty cloths used to wipe down the steam wand lying...

    Ok, excuse the pun, but, if my machine and grinder cost £3400 and I keep them 5 years, then the costs are £680 per year or £13 per week. I drink 5 cappas a day, and f I were to buy them from Costa Coffee (tenuous link!) then that would be £2 a go or £10 a day or £70 per week or £3640 per anum...

    Hello everyone! My name is Cassia, I'm 20 years old and I live in Gravesend, Kent. I have just gotten myself a job at Costa Coffee and am very excited to be learning Barista skills. Who on this forum works or has worked for Costa? What was/is your experience? Regards, Cassia.
  12. Gaggia Forum
    Hi everyone, Firstly, apologies for asking questions that you've probably answered several times already to many newbies, but I'm panicking and need your expertise. I've just bought a Gaggia Classic and believe it might be faulty. I bought it knowing that I'd need to get non-pressurised...
  13. Coffee Lounge
    I've been a Costa fan for ages and must admit to being more than a bit addicted to not only their coffee but also the chicken/choritzo paninnis. Imagine my horror when I went into my local this morning only to be told that the shops have new grading (bronze, silver & gold) and as my local only...

  15. Coffee Lounge
    I'm not sure in which forum this belongs, but I got myself a Christmas (And possibly beyond) part time job at my local Costa Coffee where I did my work experience! I'll get to have a go on the coffee machine this time, and possibly even be sent off to be trained properly (I think!), so my home...
  16. Coffee Lounge
    On Monday, seeing as I'm in Year 11, it's my work experience week next week and I chose my favourite local cafe, Costa. Sadly I'm not allowed on the coffee machines (Damn!) but should give me a chance to learn the drinks better, a bit more about coffee, espresso and the likes, hear the funny...

    Hi all, I've joined this forum as I'd like to know about making coffee the proper way. Up until now, I've only tasted coffee from my Dulce Gusto, and Costa Coffee. I prefer expresso's - sometimes with hot milk. I would appreciate, if someone could help with what starter kit I should go for and...
  18. Coffee Beans
    I don't use these beans all the time, but I do use them as a backup if the store is out of my usuals. Such a situation arose this week. On entering my local Costa I saw the new Silver 250g tins I had heard about and then I saw the price £4.99 geeeeezzzz!! They had some of the old 227g packs left...

    For those people who are fans of Costa Coffee, in March Costa Coffee will be launching a loyalty card. It is has been trialed in Scotland and is going Nationwide next month. For every £1 you spend you get loyalty points. Not sure of the exact specifics yet but I am reliably informed that it...

    First it was Starbucks who stated that they will introduce Flat Whites onto their menu for 2010 (starting with a London rollout then spreading to the rest of the UK), now it's Costa Coffee's turn to 'follow', although a quote in the Metro would indicate otherwise. According to Metro, Costa...
