Costa Coffee Partners With Shell Malaysia - Great Tasting Coffee is Now Available at Selected Shell Select Staion Nationwide


Costa Coffee is now available at selected Shell Select stations. The brand, which is from the United Kingdom, is the second largest coffee brand in the world has tied up with Shell and launched its self-serve offering at Shell Select stations nationwide. This comes after a successful trial run at several outlets and now, Costa Coffee will be sold at over 200 Shell Select outlets nationwide with many more to come.



The Self-Serve Costa Coffee outlets are basically self service vending machines which are designed by renowned design house Pininfarina. That very famous Italian coachbuilders famed for designing a lot of Ferrari cars. The machines, two of them, one for hot drinks and one for iced ones have over 200 combinations between them and the opportunity to customise a drink is endless. 

One can have coffee (or even tea) by adding fresh milk, to selecting flavoured syrups. And Malaysia is quite unique in terms of Costa Coffee, the brand has introduced a range of self-serve iced drinks range for the first time ever. Having ice drinks is good as it suits our hot and humid environment. Even the Costa Coffee Self-Serve machines in the UK are only for hot drinks to date. 


Shell states that the partnership with Costa Coffee is in-line with their mission to enhance our customers’ retail experience with its customers and coffee enthusiasts having the option of enjoying quality coffee on-the-go. Of course, it adds to the convenience of filling up fuel at a Shell station where one can get good coffee (yes, I tried it and its actually good enough for most of us) as well as other good food like offered by Shell's Deli 2 Go (which actually freshly bake their pastries and cookies every day at the station it is sold) and tealive to name a few. 

All of these food actually gives me more reason to stop by at a Shell station these days.
