SEPANG: Being at the airport isn’t an excuse to drink mediocre coffee. You’re early for your flight and a good shot of caffeine is exactly what you need to perk up as you watch fellow travellers maneuver their suitcases around the KLIA’s huge premises.

Fret not, just look for a giant Costa Coffee cup and you’ve found their recently opened café, the third after the first two in Langkawi earlier this year.

Their latest store boasts an impressive size of 220 square meters, with a contemporary design featuring clean lines and a warm inviting feel.

The friendly staff here offer Costa’s freshly ground Mocha Italia blend and many of its signature hot and cold drinks and a good range of fresh food to delight your tummy if you’re feeling peckish.

Costa Coffee is the world’s second largest coffee chain, and its main draw is the bespoke drinks hand crafted for each customer by their baristas.

Costa’s baristas are rigorously trained artisans so beverages will be prepared to the exact requirements of each customer.

It may take five minutes longer than ordering over the counter at a fast food joint but your patience will pay off and your taste buds will thank you for the handcrafted coffee.

Costa’s signature Mocha Italia blend has been at the heart of every cup of Costa Coffee for over 45 years now.

Costa slow roasts its beans at the Costa Coffee Roastery in London, where each batch is quality checked by their Master of Coffee, Gennaro Pelliccia, before being exported around the world.

You can rest assured that each cup uses only freshly ground Mocha Italia beans and fresh milk, just the way it is served and loved in London, where Costa has its humble beginnings.

Costa’s selection of delicious fresh food is sure to satisfy weary travellers with popular choices like the turkey ciabatta and tuna wrap. For a lighter snack there’s pastries like the cinnamon whirl and vanilla twist.

If a sweet ending is a must, you certainly can’t go wrong with the scrumptious carrot cake. The health conscious or lactose intolerant aren’t left out as there’s a great tasting soy latte option available too. Non coffee drinkers can partake of the various tea blends on offer.
