Costa Coffee opens the doors to its first-of-its-kind trial store in Wandsworth.

Promising to deliver new coffee experiences in a contemporary coffee shop environment, Costa is ramping up its efforts to share its perpetual passion for coffee with the customer, and in a first for its UK high street stores, will also be trialing an extended evening offering including a small selection of alcoholic drinks to complement its food and drink range.

The store is the result of close collaboration between EDGE, OUR DESIGN AGENCY, and Costa’s Innovation and Store Design teams.

“Our aim has been to deliver a warm and welcoming store environment, in keeping with the feel Costa is known and loved for, whilst evolving the interior to suit the needs of the metropolitan customer.  The scheme includes new feature lighting, solo tables and cocktail chairs in a simplified palette of materials and finishes with highlights of polished brass and gold, complementing the signature Costa red which is a key feature throughout” said Michael Fern, Director, EDGE.

In 1971 the Costa brothers arrived in London with a burning desire to make fine coffee part of London life. This store is also a real celebration of the brand’s heritage made relevant for today’s coffee lovers.
