Origin

As you take your first sip of our premium Arabica coffees, let your mind travel to the equatorial wonderlands where the brew in your cup comes from. At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, we purchase specialty grade Arabica from three distinct regions: Latin America, the Pacific, and East Africa. How your coffee looks, tastes and smells has much to do with where it comes from, and how it was grown.

All our imported coffees have been cultivated at high altitude - between 3,500 and 6,000 feet - because cooler temperatures slow the beans' ripening time, and create more concentrated, flavorful coffees. To ensure we're offering you Simply the Best from each region, we personally travel to various farms and estates to visit local growers and find the best quality harvests. We nurture long lasting relationship with estates not only for the high quality of their product, but also for their Earth-friendly growing practices and the excellence in how they treat their workers and families.
