The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 2015 Holiday Launch

At the beginning of every love story, a passion brews in unexpected places. When traveling around Europe during their honeymoon, Herbert and Mona Hyman were inspired by European coffee shops that provided unique experiences to its visitors. Thus they decided to bring the idea to America. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf was born in Brentwood California in 1963 - the very first of its kind to sell fresh roasted gourmet coffee and tea.

In 2003, the franchise arrived on Philippine shores, giving Filipinos access to top 1% grade A Arabica beans and top two hand plucked tea leaves.

Last November 7,2015, I was invited by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf to their 2015 Holiday Launch here in Davao City. Holiday Season is fast approaching so what does it mean? Definitely Gift Giving.

The Giving Journal is not your ordinary planner. It is designed to encourage individuals to pursue their dreams and passion at the same time find meaning in everyday moments. Giving back has never been this simple.


The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf supports the REAL Life Foundation. The foundation is the Giving Journal's beneficiary. Proceeds from the Giving Journal are used to help kids and teenagers go to school. Because they believe that education is powerful tool to achieve one's dream. This program is not just for one school year but they support the students’ whole college education. Since 2011, they have already sponsored 38 university scholars and 13 of those scholars have already graduated.
