Coffee lovers, gather! September has ended and it’s time to wake up. In celebration of International Coffee Month this October, we’re not only celebrating coffee as a beverage but also learning more about it.
To quote Rohan Marley, “Coffee connects us in so many ways – to each other, to our senses, and to the earth that supports the coffee trees.” We simply can’t imagine functioning without the invigorating whiff of a good brew to kick off our day.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL) has always championed quality coffee, all the way from the lofty mountaintops where the beans are sourced, to the familiar countertops of your favourite coffee store. Each type of bean, whether it comes from East Africa, Latin America or the Pacific, is selected from the top 1% of Arabica beans from small farms and private estates.
CB&TL’s Signature Espresso, for example, is a blend of beans from five different origins, combined to create a full-bodied, aromatic espresso shot, with each origin possessing its own unique characteristics. They are then roasted individually in small batches to preserve the quality and intensity of each’s aroma and flavour before combining to create the final blend.
Then there’s also the Kahawa 28 beverages, made from the unique Tanzanian Peaberry, a rare species that grows as a single bean. This single origin brew allows you to fully experience its unique characteristics, which includes an aromatic jasmine scent and hints of chocolate and blackcurrant.
“The right brew – made from quality beans that are roasted to the right degree to optimise its flavour – can do wonders. It can lift your spirits and turn your whole day around, and connect coffee lovers in a special way. That’s what we do at CB&TL, and why we continually invest in sourcing the best beans we can find,” said Fiona Rodrigues, Head of Sales & Marketing, CB&TL Malaysia. “This month, let us bring you that most important element – the human touch – so you can enjoy handcrafted beverages that deliver a deeply satisfying experience.”
For the month of October, coffee lovers can enjoy specially-curated Fully Caffeinated Menu, crafted around the Signature Espresso, with a specially-created Espresso Whipped Cream for an extra hit of delicious flavour.
