The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Sri Lanka’s premier specialty coffee shop and lifestyle brand, has opened its new Colpetty store at Liberty Plaza Podium. The famous Californian brand founded in 1963 in Los Angeles and the favourite of Hollywood stars, is widely considered to serve the best coffees and teas in the world in over 1,000 outlets globally.
The Coffee Bean buys the top one percent of all Arabica coffee beans produced each year in the world and utilizes over 50 years of roasting experience to bring out the very best from the world’s finest beans.
The newest addition to the Coffee Bean brand is located right in the heart of Colpetty junction, in the new extension of the Liberty Plaza shopping mall, next to the upcoming Movenpick hotel, called the ‘Liberty Plaza Retail Podium’. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is situated on the first floor and easily accessible from the outdoor escalator or through the lifts from the car park or directly from the walkway connecting to the existing mall.
The new Colpetty store highlights the Coffee Bean trademark of a luxurious Californian lounge lifestyle and joins the brands Cinnamon Gardens store as the most luxurious space in Colombo. A window front bar counter to ‘see and be seen’ conveniently provides customers with the fastest free Wi-Fi (available by end of April) and free power points for their mobile devices. Community tables, also with free power points, are a great place to hold an important meeting or hang out with a group of friends.
A new feature for the office crowd is the ‘Grab and Go’ display, showcasing a sample of CBTL’s most popular premium sandwiches, salads and bottled drinks, all available ready to go. The store will be able to undertake deliveries in the area and take orders by phone. A wide range of the famous Coffee Bean cakes are available for collection from the store or on delivery.
During April and May, Coffee Bean will progressively introduce a vastly extended menu of its popular bistro food items. As is standard at The Coffee Bean, all food items are made fresh daily by the company’s own chefs using the world’s finest imported and local ingredients. Nothing is ever outsourced and the origin of all ingredients clearly stated under the company’s “Origins – know what you are eating” policy. The Colpetty store, as all the larger Coffee Bean stores, will have its own in-store chef.
To celebrate the opening Coffee Bean is rewarding its most loyal customers, who have a ‘Bean Card’, with a special ‘Buy 1 get 1 free offer’ during the opening month of April at the new Colpetty store. The offer is available on all coffee and tea-based drinks, including the wide range of Ice BlendedsTM, voted the best drink in the world.
Future stores will be opening soon in Galle Road at The Landmark Building, Negombo at Negombo Beach, Rajagiriya and Orion City IT Park.
The stores will follow the brand’s moniker of ‘Simply The Best’, not just for coffee-based drinks but also as the brand that creates the very best spaces in the very best locations, to meet and hang out backed up with the best free Wi-Fi
