Costa Coffee is the largest and most popular coffee house chain in the UK.
The above caffeine amount is what would be expected in a Costa Medio Size Coffee.
Costa began in 1971 when brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa poured their first cup in London and has since opened shops in 29 countries.
Costa Coffee's caffeine revolves around the shot of espresso since all of their coffee beverages are espresso based.
1 shot equals about 92mg of caffeine.
Most of their coffees then use the following shot amounts.
- Primo = 2 shots
- Medio = 3 shots
- Massimo = 4 shots
But, some like their latte use these shot amounts.
- Primo = 1 shots
- Medio = 2 shots
- Massimo = 3 shots
Based on this, here are how many of Costa's most popular coffees break down.
