Aimed towards the condo dwellers that enjoy living the good life, CondoLiving magazine presented these lifestyle and home design elements into a one-of-a-kind event. “Living in a condo goes beyond the four corners of a unit. It’s all about the the person living in it and his lifestyle. CondoLiving magazine believes in the same principle, and we are highlighting this in our pages,” shares Maite Tamparong-Uy, One Mega Group Home and Design Publisher.

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf makes Everyday Extraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

We all want lives that are filled with extraordinary experiences, but the reality is that most of the time life itself gets in the way. Work, errands, traffic, monetary issues, and other mundane details all seem to conspire to make more of our days tedious, unexceptional and often downright dreary.

At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, we believe that extraordinary should be neither elusive nor inaccessible. It doesn’t have to be back packing in the French countryside or scuba diving in El Nido. A great book or movie can be extraordinary, so can a stimulating conversation with an old friend, and who doesn’t love a great meal?

Certainly a meal in a restaurant with a tasteful, cozy ambiance and great customer service can be extraordinary too, especially if the dish is something different from anything out there, and all the more extraordinary for its distinctness. Throw in the most ideally-suited wine, a sinfully delicious desert, and a world-renowned cup of coffee, and you have not only a difficult-to-forget experience, but one that you’ll want to repeat as often as possible. Such an experience is what they aim to deliver at the 26th St. Bistro by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

26th St. Bistro is the essence of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® expressed as a unique dining and restaurant concept. More than just everyday meals, they create and serve full-course cuisine that’s delightfully different and distinctively delicious, made with same passion for quality and handcraftsmanship they put into our coffees and teas. From their signature menu items and world-famous brews, to their distinctive dining concept and customer service, they always want their customers to feel that they have enjoyed something unique and special – in a word, EXTRAORDINARY.

Much like how The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® redefined our expectations of the café, 26th St. Bistro elevates the casual dining concept by serving up a gustatory experience you don’t normally get in a comfortable, cozy, everyday atmosphere.

Anyway, curious about the CBTL Logo? as we go on talking I learned (Thank you so much Jaybee Chun and JV Roman for sharing) that the bean on top is the representation that in every coffee bean harvest, they only get the top 1% of the same size and shape of Pure Arabica beans  (which means it’s the best of the best kind) and the leaves under is the top two tea leaves and a bud ( take note, the most flavorful) that they’ll get from every set, which means you get the best of the best in a cup of CBTL Signature!

Its always worth the price, the taste and everything when you know the history of you are drinking or eating. Its like knowing and experiencing their culture.

I swear all of them are so good  and now my favorites , and before I forgot, I discovered their Anniversary Blend Tea, (make it Latte and you will love it more! ) Its a must try! As in!  thanks to the beautiful ladies Jaybee and JV for the reco.

It was one extraordinary night for us and I assure you that CBTL will make your #EverydayExtraordinary too.

XOXO,
