Following the successful introduction of the CBTL® Single Serve Beverage System, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, the Southern California-based specialty coffee and tea company, announced the debut of its new CBTL® Americano single serve model machine, which is available initially only at Bed Bath & Beyond stores nationwide and online just in time for the holiday gift and entertaining season. With the CBTL® Americano machine, along with a full line of CBTL® products, including the CBTL® Milk Frother, 19 beverage capsule varieties – espresso, coffee, flavored coffee and tea - and the exclusive Special Dutch™ Chocolate and French Deluxe™ Vanilla powders, consumers can re-create their favorite espresso, coffee, tea as well as the specialty beverages The Coffee Bean® is famous for – easily, at home, at the touch of a button.
“We are excited to offer the CBTL® System in Bed Bath & Beyond, known as a key destination for Single Serve,” said Mel Elias, President and CEO of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. “Single Serve machines will be one of the hottest gifts this holiday season and now consumers will have the opportunity to buy the best in class CBTL® System in their local Bed Bath & Beyond store.”
The CBTL® Americano model machine features six cup sizes, automatic beverage proportioning for consistency cup after cup, a 50 oz water tank, adjustable drip tray, automatic capsule ejection, used capsule storage, and energy saving features and retails for $149.99.
The CBTL® System is designed to be used exclusively with CBTL® capsules, which feature The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® hand-selected premium espresso, coffee and hand-plucked whole leaf tea. Each CBTL® capsule is hermetically sealed to prolong freshness to preserve the delicate aroma and features an internal two-filter system to ensure evenly balanced extraction and optimal flavor.
The CBTL® beverage capsules available at Bed Bath & Beyond stores and online include four varieties of espresso, 12 varieties of coffee and flavored coffee capsules (16 per box) plus three teas (10 per box).
The CBTL® Milk Frother can be used for one-touch frothed or steamed milk and the two proprietary flavored powders, French Deluxe™ Vanilla and Special Dutch™ Chocolate, which make rich and creamy specialty beverages just like those served at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® will be available in 8 single-serve packets per box.
