BASILDON, Essex, UK – UK Coffee shop chain Costa is inaugurating today (March 13) a state-of –the art coffee roastery, a facility which the company claims is “one of the most sustainable industrial buildings in the world” as well as “Europe’s biggest coffee roastery”.
The new plant in Basildon, Essex, will increase Costa’s roasting capacity from 11,000 tonnes to 45,000 tonnes per year.
The £38m facility, named Paradise Street, covers the equivalent of more than 30 tennis courts at 85,690 sq ft and can handle 24 tonnes of coffee beans per hour compared to six tonnes at the old facility in Lambeth.
