Daily Telegraph: "'Taxman's favourite' Costa [Brent Cross] gets lift from Starbucks [Brent Cross] woes"


Link to Daily Telegraph
" 'Costa has always been the nation's favourite coffee shop and now it's the taxman's,' said Andy Harrison, the chief executive, on Tuesday.

"Starbucks is fighting to overcome the damage to its reputation from the tax row. It paid just £8.5m in corporation tax in 14 years on UK sales of £3bn, and a pledge last week to voluntarily pay £20m to the taxman to defuse the row appeared to backfire, triggering protests at branches across the country at the weekend." 



"A favourite destination for all coffee lovers, Costa prides itself on real coffee made by real people. Every Costa barista is unique - not only expert at making the perfect coffee with speed and precision, but each bringing their own flair and creativity to every cup they make. 
Drop into Costa at Brent Cross, and get to know your Costa baristas for yourself, while you rest amid stylish modern d├ęcor. Indulge in authentic Italian coffee, hot chocolate, teas and frescato, and enjoy a wide range of hot and cold sandwiches, cakes and pastries."

"The world’s favourite American coffee house, Starbucks is the place to relax with friends or take a break from your shopping. 
Enjoy high-quality whole-bean coffees, fresh, rich-brewed, Italian-style espresso beverages and a variety of pastries and confections. Starbucks also sells coffee-related accessories and equipment."
