Costa Coffee has announced it will be rolling out the world’s first integrated hot and cold self-serve Costa Express machines this summer.
Following a successful trial in Bristol last summer, the Costa Express machines have been upgraded to deliver both hot and iced drinks, as well as 1,100 new machines offering the service.
The move follows a 2019 Canadean Report revealing iced coffee accounts for one in five global coffee purchases.
The company also revealed it’s Express customers can exclusively pick up a limited-edition new Iced Salted Caramel Frappé.

“Costa Express is synonymous with exceptional coffee on-the-go, so we’re delighted to be able to rollout our Costa Express hot and iced drinks machine this summer,” Costa Express director UK and Ireland, Nick Orrin said.
“The technology used in these state-of-the-art machines is nothing short of a gold-standard level of innovation – a world’s first for the self-service coffee machine industry. What’s more, we are giving our customers what they have been asking for from us – their favourite crafted coffee, personalised for how they want it and when they want it.”
