The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf was found by Herb and Mona Hyman in 1963 when they visited Europe to taste and experience the best coffee offered in that region. For that matter they have decided to bring home the specialty coffee concept of a business back to California, United States. They first opened their store in Brentwood, California, and still operating until this day.
Over the next 35 years, the Hymans continued to grow the coffee business and share their passion throughout Southern California.

These personalized creations have been used in formulating some of our popular and enduring blends still offered in our cafes today.
