"The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® is proud of our West Coast roots and is committed to giving back to our local communities," said John Fuller, president and CEO of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. "With the fires and mudslides that have devastated Southern California over the last six months, it is the perfect time to evolve the Caring Cup charitable initiative with the 'Heroes at Heart' program to benefit First Responders and their families. 'Heroes at Heart' truly embodies the dedication, spirit and commitment of our local firefighters and peace officers."
The "Heroes at Heart" Coffee Blend is a dark & distinctive medium roast with roasted nut aroma notes, dried fruit flavor, and a semi-sweet chocolate finish using beans from the Cerrado region of Brazil. The unique Tea Blend features green tea leaves grown in the northern most point of the province of Jeolla-Namdo, South Korea and picked at the end of spring from a family owned garden established in 1951. The special tea leaves are then blended with peppermint leaf, cornflower and other flavors for a sweet summer profile.
