Overview

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®

About Us 

Since Founded in 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has always been passionate about connecting loyal customers with carefully handcrafted products.  The art of crafting the best-tasting coffee requires respecting each individual roast. From Light and Subtle to Dark and Distinctive, we roast perfectly from seed to cup. We believe that buying from the best estates and small farms leads to the very best coffee. In our search for the finest coffees in the world, we use only the top 1% of the Arabica Beans found at altitudes up to 6,000 feet, which results in a more concentrated flavor. Quality has always been our No. 1 priority, and it will never be compromised. 

Tea is the most widely consumed prepared beverage on Earth. And The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is here to bring you the perfect version of the world’s favorite drink offering whole-leaf gourmet tea. We work directly with private, family-owned tea estates to cultivate the best tea leaves from Sri Lanka, China, Thailand, Japan, and India — then we hand-blend them locally for maximum freshness. Because of our standards for quality, taste, and heritage, you’re sure to enjoy the very best whole-leaf teas and tea blend drinks available anywhere.

Our Philosophy In Giving Back

Our philosophy of impacting lives from seed to cup is steeped in everything we do. We’ve been in the business of doing right by our farmers since the beginning, and of advocating for coffee growers and exporters by paying fair, sustainable prices that help grow their success.  By staying connected to the people for whom tea is a livelihood, we go beyond fair wages by giving back to the plantations, estates, and communities that grow our delicious tea by supporting local education and healthcare programs. Cultivating these close ties benefits everyone; from the local growers to our global customers who get to taste the benefits of our partnerships.  We’ve been in the business of doing right by our farmers since the beginning, and of advocating for coffee growers and exporters by paying fair, sustainable prices that help grow their success.
