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.

LADY CYCLISTS HIT THE ROADS AND SLOPES OF CEBU.

Cycling has been a growing sport and hobby for many years but it’s popularity has erupted since the Covid pandemic.  People biking to work and for recreation is an everyday sight in Cebu.  More and more are joining the ride.  Many are quite serious about cycling.  I know three ladies who are among those who’ve gone long distances across Cebu.

How did you get into serious cycling?  What was your motivation?

Blinky de Leon.  Event Host, Product Endorser & Influencer

“ I’ve been into cycling since I was a kid. A little backstory, I was around 10 years old when my dad surprised me with my first custom-made mountain bike. I still keep it until now, in fact I had it refurbished. It’s the most sentimental thing I ever received since it was his way/gesture to catch up with me after not seeing each other for almost 6 yrs. My dad is based in Germany and he also loves cycling and makes his own bamboo bike.”

 

“Just a year ago though, my friend Gazini randomly, out of nowhere, picked me up from home to bike with her to the South of Cebu. I felt really excited and motivated to get back on track because it’s very nostalgic and brings back so many great memories. And since then, the rest was history. We’ve been joining different groups, tried different routes and conquered different heights. I’ve met so many cyclists with very inspiring stories in the bike community who kept me feeling motivated too. I also look forward to the sights and the adventure that comes along with it.”

 

Yumz Mariot. Branding & Marketing Consultant

“I used to bike along with rock and wall climbing. I am lousy with ballgames which is why. Our usual route were Talamban and Mactan but one time, managed to ship gears all the way to Dumaguete for a quick ride to Valencia, the next town located at a higher elevation. Those were days when I did it for fun and what bike I was using did not matter.”

“Fast forward to 2021, a year after the pandemic lockdown began, I realized I have been lazy to do any fitness routine. Too caught up on juggling between house chores and Work from Home deliverables (I work as a Branding and Marketing Consultant), I started to feel my body needs to move as much as my brain does. A hysical fitness routine is as important as what I eat, or what I read or watch. So I decided to invest on a decent MTB, just very recently and got myself a much necessary restart. What motivates me even more is the area where I currently reside at. It is vast, fresh, green and safe for solo bikers like me.”

 

Prime Sarino. Digital Media Creative

“I started biking as a young teenager and I got the idea to start it as an adult hobby 3 years ago. I was already into running and I thought it would be great to venture into another outdoor activity to keep me occupied after work hours and weekends. I was set to travel for a year so I had to put aside the idea first but came pandemic. We were all forced to stay put and everything was put on hold. Cycling became my diversion. My cyclists friends invited me to quick and short rides. I enjoyed my first 50km ride and the sceneries and routes most of all. It also helped channel a positive mindset during the hard hit season of the pandemic. Not to mention it’s also another way to stay fit when we were forced into inactivity during the quarantine.”

Next in Part 2, we ask the ladies about their cycling experiences and memorable moments…
