πŸ€ͺ Italian Immigrant brothers Bruno and Sergio Costa founded a coffee roastery in Lambeth, London, in 1971, supplying local caterers. The family had moved to England in the 1960s. Costa branched out to selling coffee in 1978, when its first store opened in Vauxhall Bridge Road, London. πŸ€ͺ

Well done ! πŸ‘

Seriously? I was taking the p*ss Les (in the nicest possible way).

I thought you were asking when the Spanish Costas were given their names

Craig, It was meant to look like I was asking about the Spanish Costas, i was intending to see how many people gave answers saying something like, Valencia in the mid 1950s  and then eventually i was going to say No, it was London in 1978 !

You burnt me out, right at the start with the correct answer you @#$$$.πŸ˜ƒ

But , again, well done πŸ‘

Kush it was indeed a close Run contest between yourself and Craig but I'm afraid   you will have to accept that over the 'Coffee' thing you have, in an 'Instant', Bean' beaten this time πŸ˜›πŸ˜„.
