About Us

Born & brewed in California

IN 1963, HERBERT B. HYMAN STARTED THE COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF®. HIS DEDICATION TO FINDING AND SERVING THE BEST COFFEE AND TEA IN THE WORLD MADE HIM THE FOUNDING FATHER OF GOURMET COFFEE IN CALIFORNIA.


     Now, nearly 50 years old, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has grown into one of the largest privately-owned, family-run coffee and tea companies in the world. Along the way, The Bean, as it is affectionately known, has become the model for a successful coffee and tea company. Since opening our first café in Brentwood, California, we have always been passionate about connecting loyal customers with carefully handcrafted products.

     Though we travel far and wide to discover the flavors you love, we always bring it home. Delivering the look, taste and aroma of the world’s best coffees and teas is what we do best, and every sip should take you to the corners of the earth where each flavor was cultivated. Let us pour you something delicious.

Every cup of beverage is unique

     It is a composition of the highest quality blend, the right mix of powders, and an equally passionate barista that can cater to your every need. And not to forget the most important ingredient of all, lots and lots of love. That's why at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf®, we are committed to give you the best experience that only you deserve.

It started from the earth where all good things come from

     We hand-picked the finest grade of beans and leaves from Southern Colombia all the way to the fields of Sri Lanka. They are harvested from independent farms and private estates too, so we can give back to your local mom-and-pop seed growers who love coffee and tea as much as we do. Then, years of continuous research have enabled us to produce industry-firsts powders to complement the blends and add flavors to your beverages.

Of course no amount of research and high-quality beans could compensate for human touch

     When these ingredients arrive in our stores, our barista would gladly customize your drink as per your liking. Vanilla or hazelnut? Full cream or skimmed milk? We got you covered, sometimes with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on top!

We don't stop at just coffee and tea
