Making a positive contribution to the communities we are part of is extremely important to us, both here in the UK and across the world, that's why we established The Costa Foundation, a registered charity with the aim of improving the life chances of children in coffee growing communities by helping them access a safe, quality education. So far, The Costa Foundation has funded over 100 school projects and changed the lives of more than 100,000 children. We also have a UK-wide Community Programme, which enables our teams to volunteer their time to good causes locally and to invite community groups to make use of our welcoming space in stores.
In 2011, Costa Coffee purchased Coffee Nation, which is now Costa Express. Today, Costa Express operates in 16 international markets, with over 11,000+ coffee bars in the UK and more than 1,100+ globally.
