The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Pours Happy Across the Archipelago

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf will always have a special place in my heart. Those who *religiously* follow the #ArnEo loveteam would know! ;) One of my first dates with Deo was at Coffee Bean Tomas Morato, where were got to taste the Vanilla Almond drink. It was probably the omen of his blogging career, because he got to write a guest post here. Who would’ve known he’d have his own digital space? ♥ Fast-forward to present, Coffee Bean’s still our go-to place to cap off the day with our favorite hot teas. I think we’re here almost everyday! :p

No questions asked, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf only serves the best to its customers. Their quality coffee is sourced from no less than the top 1% of specialty grade A Arabica beans while their quality tea leaves are hand-plucked using only the top two leaves and a bud of each plant. Each bean and tea leaf is selected and prepared with such care that it is no wonder customers always return for their favorite drinks. Holla! Among these favorites are the famous Chai Tea Latte and the brand’s original creation: the Original Ice Blended drink.

In the last 50 years, the brand has grown up to 1,000 stores in 25 countries and has made numerous milestones in the Philippines since it opened its first branch at Greenbelt 3 in 2003. Through the years they have launched the CBTL Single Serve Beverage System in 2010 and opened the brand’s first restaurant concept, the 26th St. Bistro and the first CBTL Coffee Bar in 2012.

Continuing its growth, in the first 6 months of 2016, the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has proudly opened six new branches, pouring happy in Circuit Lane and The Enterprise Center in Makati, Robinsons Galleria in Cebu, SM MOA Arena Annex (MAAX) in Pasay, SM Southmall in Las Pinas, and UP Town Center in Quezon Ciy. As of July, the brand has renovated its stores at Trinoma and Ortigas Park.

The brand’s expansion may be attributed to the fact that relationships remain at the heart of everything The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf does as it partners with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and REAL Life Foundation through the Caring Cup Global Charity Program, the brand’s Corporate Social Responsibility arm.

They also don’t fail in reaching out to us, its customers, through the Swirl Rewards Card program, the Giving Journal, and the Brew Your Best Year community, a home-grown initiative that was launched in 2014, making its local success reach beyond its quality coffee and tea.

Always gonna love Coffee Bean!
