I’ve been buzzing all summer off iced coffee. Now Blue Bottle is not only open in Venice, but Beverly Blvd (too close to home) and I can’t seem to get enough of the iced vanilla lattes at Alfred’s Coffee on Melrose. Now Coffee Bean, just a 2 minute walk from my home, offers Angelenos and tourists a taste of chilled happiness – Build your Own Ice Blended Drink with cookie pieces, chocolate covered espresso beans, and more. Really, it’s like having dessert!
Now my favorite Italian specialty which seems to be popping up on more and more LA dessert menus, is offered at Coffee Bean til the end of August. The Affogato Pour over! Instead of ice-cream, have an espresso shot poured over any Ice Blended Drink!
Born and brewed in Southern California since 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is the oldest and largest privately-held specialty coffee and tea retailer in the United States. “We invented the Original Ice Blended® drink in the late ‘80s and started a nationwide craze, says Gloria Reardon, Director of Marketing. “This summer, we’re adding new ways Ice Blended® drink aficionados can mix and match specialty add-ins and modifiers to craft new variations of this classic beverage. It’s a fun way to enjoy a warm weather treat and make it your own.”
