Costa’s new £38m roastery to open in 2017

BRCS are very pleased to be acting as the Approved Inspector for Costa’s new roastery in Basildon, Essex. As reported the facility will ship beans to more than 3,000 Costa cafes in 31 countries. A video clip has been released by Costa which takes the viewer on a virtual tour. The size of 30 tennis courts, the facility will have the capacity to make up to 45,000 tonnes of ground coffee per year, compared with 10,000 tonnes produced at its current site in Lambeth, south London, opposite the Newport Street Gallery.
