The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s Single Serve Beverage System

To call it a ‘coffee maker’ would be an affront to what the machine can actually do—especially since it’s a machine that has been fated to set off a coffee and tea revolution.

To call it a ‘coffee maker’ would be an affront to what the machine can actually do—especially since it’s a machine that has been fated to set off a coffee and tea revolution.

Meet the CBTL—the iconic, single-serve beverage platform du jour that is taking the world by storm. This is where Italian design and espresso-making expertise meets The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s distinct specialty coffee experience in one sleek and reassuringly simple package.

The question is, which CBTL is the right one for you?

The Contata

The Contata

The draw of all things simple and sleek is hard to ignore. This makes the classic CBTL Contata’s contours a premium choice. Its inherent sleekness mirrors the kind of ease that the confident and well-travelled set carries. The Contata comes in classic colors (black and gray) typifying the machine’s elegant appeal, where the accomplished jet-setter’s eye for aesthetics, global ideals and effortless class is reflected. In the simplest terms—it’s globally sleek—two words that completely sum up the Contata owner.

The Kaldi

A more vibrant incarnation of the classic style, the Kaldi stands out with its dynamic colors and design that bears its own distinct personality.

The Kaldi

Kaldi Blue

Still rooted in the ease and simplicity that is essential to the CBTL, Kaldi in blue celebrates the sporty and masculine appeal of its vibrant hue. It’s a seamless fusion of sport and luxury—the compact look of the machine mirroring the active effortlessness that everyone from young dads to sports enthusiasts exhibit.

Kaldi Red

The deceptively simple yet distinctly individual look of the Kaldi in red is laced with an inherent sexiness that defines a feminine and bohemian vibe. While most machines will succumb to abstract references of art to convey its artistic sensibilities, this one makes an impression through sheer looks—much like a siren—whose energy is heightened by a certain je ne sais quoi.

Kaldi Gold

It’s a machine that is as eye-catching as it is unassuming—displaying an innate sense of earthiness that allows it to tread the fine line between prominence and subtlety for anyone making room for the Kaldi in gold in their homes. The auspicious hue makes it an ideal choice for anyone who values the unpretentious vibe of a must-have item that celebrates its practicality as much as it does its exceptional design.

Kaldi Silver

It’s a fusion of European design with edgy aesthetics that break convention that appeals to urban denizens who are constantly on-the-go. Kaldi in silver promises quick and effortless interaction with those who value efficiency in a modern and compact design. The machine reflects an inbuilt functionality highly valued by those whose schedules permit mere minutes of downtime, best spent with a gourmet cup of coffee or tea, served fast, fresh and piping-hot.

“Quite simply, CBTL is redefining the idea of instant coffee and tea, as we know it. No longer do we have to settle for watered down cups of morning brews; because now, a single push of a button can create a cup of café-quality coffee or tea—one that will not disappoint even the most discerning connoisseurs”, explains Walden Chu, President of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Philippines.

A Moving Feast: Cebu Food and Wine Festival 2024 Opens in NUSTAR Resort

by Kara Mae M. Noveda

Taste Cebu! That is how the invitation goes for the two-day opening salvo of this year’s Cebu Food and Wine Festival (CFWF) held at the NUSTAR Resort Cebu. When the doors opened in the plush ballrooms last June 1, more than a thousand guests were treated to a moving feast for all the senses. Setting this year’s festival apart, the CFWF board of organizers put on a multi-sensory approach. Bringing their vision board to life, the opening gala brought large-scale visuals to complement an array of innovative culinary creations. After all, we also taste with our eyes.

Meticulously prepared local-inspired dishes with overflowing wine and alcoholic drinks filled the three tasting zones: Wave, Peak, and Warmth–with each themed zone serving a taste of a distinct aspect of Cebuano food culture.

Beginning with the Wave Tasting Zone that capitalizes on the coastal freshness of the island of Cebu. The emblematic dishes in this zone are bakasi (saltwater eel) stuffed cornmeal topped with bakasi bones and local sea urchin & tarurot (this is sea urchin blended with deep-fried baby squid floss plated in a sea urchin shell). Chef David Thien and his team also served refreshing cold noodles.

Next, the Peak Tasting Zone highlights the mountainous area west and east of Cebu. From these farm-rich areas, you get good produce transformed into incredible base ingredients for memorable local dishes: manok Bisaya (local chicken) and everyone’s favorite, Cebu Lechon. Crowds flocked into the lechon station manned by Chef Sau del Rosario, known in the culinary world as “The Godfather of Philippine Cuisine.”

Finally, the Warmth Tasting Zone celebrates the exciting city life that Cebu also has to offer. Big cities are a melting pot of different cultures, so you’re right to expect fusion dishes in this zone. Samples of exciting hybrid dishes include the coconut wine-marinated conch shell sisig served in corn tortillas and Chef Lisa Revilla-Thien’s Hamachi salad.

The festival’s honored guest, Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Christina Garcia-Frasco, who walked with the media members for a preview, emphasizes the importance of gastronomy tourism. The DOT is keen on supporting programs that elevate the country’s culinary portfolio.

The Cebu Food and Wine Festival is a month-long June festival featuring over 60 pocket events spread in over 40 participating restaurants and 20 hotels.
