Confession: I drink over two cups of coffee a day.
But sometimes, I end up having more. Those are the days that are full of meet ups with other parents and friends.
Those are the days that I am planning planning planning…and feeling super accomplished.
Those are the days that I start ordering DECAF, please.

But when it’s a destination meeting in Eastwood, and I would like to have a nice cup of coffee in what is known as LONDON’s Favourite Coffee Shop, the destination is Costa Coffee.
An institution that is more than 40 years old, the Costa brothers have been blending coffee and serving up their Mocha Italia in London and all over the world. Both Bruno and Sergio Costa had a passion for coffee as early as 1971. It was way back then, when they decided to bring their coffee to the heart of LONDON.
What impresses me about this coffee brand is that no matter where they source their coffee beans (responsibly) they are blended and roasted in the same place where they have been roasting since 1986. These beans are then shipped off to over 3,000 locations where trained baristas serve up your Mocha Italia from the expertly roasted espresso beans and combined with frothed milk, chocolate cream, or caramel sauce making each cup of crafted coffee completely personalized for you.
The Mocha Italia is still their signature drink…and their Coffee Master, Genarro Peliccia is the man behind the expertly crafted coffee with a chocolate twist. His tastebuds are so very important to the consistently blended Arabica and Robusta beans for this drink that it was once reported his tongue was insured for 10 million pounds. (SAY WHAT?)
If you happen to be in EASTWOOD, and you would like a cup of coffee that is not only socially responsible to enjoy (Costa is part of the Rainforest Alliance ensuring that every coffee bean is grown responsibly and sustainably.) over a meeting with friends, be sure to check out the most popular Mocha Italia for a delicious treat.
I know I will…anyone want to meet up soon?
Since their grand opening one month ago in Eastwood, Costa has already opened their second branch in Ermita.
