They’re open! The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Bacolod brings great coffee and elegant tea pairing in their new store. Visit them at the ground floor of Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Gatuslao Street, Bacolod City.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Bacolod
Many new Bacolod cafes are now offering because of the demand for good quality coffee. We have gone far and beyond packs of 3-in-1 coffee. Many of us now prefer our delightful morning stimulant to be brewed from the finest beans. And there is such joy in partaking of a good cup.
Now, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Bacolod brings our coffee appreciation a step further. The process starts with their stringent selection of the finest Arabica beans. These end as handcrafted hot and cold beverages for us to enjoy in any of their stores worldwide.
However, they don’t just end with coffee. While many locals are used to drinking ready-made iced tea in restaurants and convenience stores, TCFTL is introducing fine imported teas. These natural drinks from different plants and herbs have different tastes and effects on the body. Additionally, they all have different steeping times in order to get optimum flavor.
Coffee and Tea Pairing Service
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Bacolod is just more than drinks. They offer a coffee and tea pairing service for the drinks and snacks. Having the right kind of flavor in your food along with the right drink enhances a diner’s experience of flavors.
Sample Tea Pairings
Here are some sample tea pairings that we tried at The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Bacolod:
- African Sunshine and Banana Chocolate Muffin
- Genmaicha and Spicy Tuna Pandesal
- Apricot Ceylon and Blueberry Cheesecake or Raisin Muffin
- Pomegranate Blueberry – Banoffee Pie or Carrot Cake
It is a wonderful experience and we got to try it first-hand during their grand opening here in Bacolod City. The Bacolod bloggers and media were treated to different kinds of teas and baked treats. We brought home some of their teas and I am having my daily dose of unsweetened hot tea. Their gift of a tea timer is just wonderful. Now, my tea tastes just right.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Bacolod is conveniently located in front of Ayala Malls Capitol Central. They open early so you can grab your favorite drink and breakfast there even before the mall opens. It’s just on the left side of the mall, near the driveway.

The Commitment to Excellence
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is one of the oldest and largest privately held specialty coffee and tea retailers in the world. It was Born and brewed in Southern California since 1963.
From the time they opened their first cafe in Brentwood, California, the company has always been passionate about connecting their loyal customers with carefully handcrafted drinks. Good enough is never enough. Everything has to be excellent and the best.
The Quest for Excellence
But this quest for excellence comes with a price. Coffee and tea experts travel far and wide to discover the flavors we love. They always bring it home from the corners of the world where each flavor was cultivated.
Moreover, they aim higher than the standard, selecting only the top 1% percent of specialty grade Arabica beans. As for tea, only the top two leaves and a bud of the finest hand-plucked, whole leaf teas make the cut.
A Relationship with Growers
The company prides itself of its direct relationships with growers and individual farms and estates. No middlemen. This gives us the assurance of the best coffee and tea harvests available.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® History
The brand’s story began with Herb Hyman. He was once known as the “grandfather of specialty coffee in the U.S. He brought the concept home and helped turn it into a phenomenon that continues until today. With his team, he elevated coffee drinking from a mere basic commodity to a cultural and artful event.
Furthermore, his passion led The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® to a history of breakthroughs in beverages. They introduced as the Original Ice Blended in1987, even before frozen coffee was a craze.
In the late 1990s, the brand expanded outside Southern California. And today, they are present in over 30 countries all over the world. But even with that huge operations, they still honor relationships with their farmers, people, communities, and their guests.
In the Philippines, their first branch opened in Greenbelt in 2003. By now, they have grown to 149 stores and still counting.
