Coffee Republic has agreed a deal to sell its Italian roasted coffee at 450 Shell forecourts across the UK.

The new Coffee Republic To Go range has been developed alongside self-service provider MyCoffee and includes cappuccinos, lattes and espressos.

“This is a new way of reaching our customers and an exciting first for the Coffee Republic brand,” said chief executive Tariq Affara. “The launch of Coffee Republic To Go has not been possible until now as this standard of bean-to-cup technology has simply not been available.

“We have worked hard with MyCoffee to ensure the taste is just right and the flavour of our Milan Roasted coffee is not compromised. We are now looking forward to rolling out Coffee Republic To Go across the country."

Coffee Republic slipped into administration last year following a run of store closures. It was subsequently bought by property firm Arab Investments.
