Costa plays it cool with Express

Costa hot and iced drinks

SOME like it hot, but cold coffee is the way to go for an increasing number of consumers.

In response, Costa has launched a new Costa Express machine capable of producing hot and iced drinks.

Over 1,000 new machines are being rolled out across Scotland, England and Wales, following a trial in Bristol last summer.

The new machines can produce a range of hot or cold lattes and cappuccinos, as well as iced fruit cordials and milk coolers.

To mark the UK-wide launch, Costa Express machines will also offer a limited edition Iced Salted Caramel Frappe exclusive to the new machines.

Nick Orrin, director UK & Ireland at Costa Express, said: “The technology used in these state-of-the-art machines is nothing short of a gold-standard level of innovation – a world’s first for the self-service coffee machine industry.

“What’s more, we are giving our customers what they have been asking for from us – their favourite crafted coffee, personalised for how they want it and when they want it.”

• Since 2011, Costa Coffee has operated Costa Express self-serve coffee machines in third-party shops, petrol and service stations, leisure sites and offices.
