Drink coffee, just “Affogato It!” while you’re at it, and be rewarded for it.

Where would we be without the espresso, that most potent of all coffees? In Italy, it’s as common as “teh tarik” but now you get to call the shots at your nearest The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CB&TL) store and enjoy the taste of Italy in a whole new way – just tell your barista to Affogato it!” and he’ll add a shot of espresso to your favourite Ice Blended drink for an extra caffeine kick!

The Affogato Vanilla Ice Blended


Traditionally, an affogato is a shot of espresso served over ice-cream, a decadent experience of bold brew offset with creamy richness. That was until The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Malaysia took charge, of course.

Kicking off the new “Pouring Happy” concept, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s, Affogato-style Ice Blended drink is inspired by the Italian appreciation for the good life and brings a whole new dimension to Malaysians’ favourite Mocha, Hazelnut, Caramel and Vanilla Ice Blended drinks 😉

And that’s not all!
