COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf was the original coffee house. Based in LA, the brand launched in 1963, sourcing from family-owned farms around the world and roasting locally in California. Over time, this story has been forgotten, so we developed a fresh strategic vision, based in data insights, and custom research, to make the brand relevant for today.
