The Los Angeles-based specialty beverage brand The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is expanding to New York, with the first store having opened Aug. 28 in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Fort Greene.
Franchisee Hudson River Coffee & Tea plans to open a number of stores across the New York metro area, including a second Brooklyn location before the end of the year. The Fort Greene store includes an outdoor lounge and dining space, and customers can shop safely amid the coronavirus pandemic with limited-contact procedures. They can order ahead with The Coffee Bean Rewards app or order delivery with services including Postmates and DoorDash.
The store’s offerings include signature beverages like coffee, tea and lattes along with pastries and other foods, which are certified STAR-D Kosher Dairy.
