Top 50 Indie Motor Fuel Group (MFG) has signed an agreement with Costa Express to supply its entire 48-site network with the market leading hot coffee offer.

By the end of this year, 27 of MFG’s forecourts will be offering Costa Express and the rest of the network will add the coffee machines by mid 2013.

MFG’s non-fuel director Tony Walker said: “As part of our planned shop refit programme, we are pleased to be integrating an acknowledged market leading, quality coffee into our customer offering.

“Our intention at MFG is to only partner with leading, recognised brands that will add value to the customer experience on our forecourts and in our shops.

“As we grow, the Costa brand will grow with us,” he added.

The MFG forecourts will be equipped with the attractive and user-friendly Costa Compact Mk 2 machine, which uses real Mocha Italia beans to offer consumers six standard coffees together with signature specialities and additional flavour shots.
