About Us

In 1963 Herbert B. Hyman started The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. His dedication to finding and serving the best coffee and tea in the world made him the founding father of gourmet coffee in California.

Now, more than 50 years later, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. has grown into one of the largest privately-owned, family-run coffee and tea companies in the world. Along the way, The Bean, as it is affectionately known, has become the model for a successful coffee and tea company.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® searches the earth for only the finest and rarest loose-leaf teas and premium coffees and proudly offers more than 22 varieties of coffee and 20 kinds of tea. Over the years, we have worked hard to build relationships with individual farms and estates so that we can be assured of the best coffee and tea harvests available. Our coffee is roasted fresh daily in small batches in a manual European roast style, then packed using state-of-the-art equipment for shipment in our own roasting facility and delivered fresh daily to our stores.

We are passionate about serving our customers the best coffees and teas from around the world, as we remain committed to our original vision of quality, customer service and community service.
