Costa Express roles

Innovative minds

We get the feeling that people across the UK had been sitting patiently, simply waiting for someone to invent a coffee machine with precision grinding, tamping, temperature controls and fresh milk steaming capabilities. Because when Express launched it, it was an instant hit. Today you can find our Express machines pretty much everywhere and there’s plenty more to come.

Whether building partnerships with our thousands of partners is your thing, analysing big data or maintaining our machines with your engineering expertise, there’s a role for you here.

Roastery roles

Bean Specialists

From bean to cup is quite a journey. We source our beans from coffee communities around the world and then each one – every single tiny bean – is roasted at our state-of-the-art facility in Basildon.

Producing the most loved coffee is not easy: it’s a mix of science, craft, testing and tasting. Don’t worry if science isn’t your thing though, there are plenty of other roles available at all stages of our bean production cycle to get involved with.
