What a disaster! My father-in-law arrived from Holland to a house with no coffee.
I’m no coffee drinker, so I had no way of knowing we were out.
In 2007, my father-in-law gifted us with a Philips Senseo coffee machine which we’ve been using for the last four years.
Coffee pods are normally ordered through Amazon and shipped through my friend Cedric or Johnny Air.
So for the past two days my husband and his dad have been finding other ways to have coffee, such as taking out Starbucks or going to the mall. Luckily my friends from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf sent over the new CBTL Single Serve Beverage System, plus two kinds of coffee and one kind of tea for us to try.
Setting up was easy. I did it without looking at the manual (I know it’s bad). But with Opa’s help and experience, we got it to work. First cup was a flop (too watery) and second cup was nice!
Just fill the back reservoir with water, turn it on, shoot a coffee capsule in the slot, wait for water to boil, choose the size of cup you want
CBTL™ is an easy to use, single serve beverage system that combines the taste and quality of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® with the finest Italian technology and design perfected by Caffitaly System.
One capsule is all you need to create a single serving to savor, and one touch is all it takes to brew fresh espresso, brewed coffee or tea.
Can’t wait to try the other flavors—or rather my father-in-law and husband will.
Machines are affordably priced at Php 13,750, while a box of 10 capsules costs only Php 400.
The greatest thing about capsules is that coffee stays fresh for a long time because it is individually vacuum-sealed.
Capsules are easily available at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf stores—no need to travel, make bilin, or order online, while the complete line of CBTL™ products are available at select Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® stores:
Alabang Town Center
Bellagio Square – Tomas Morato
Bonifacio High Street
Forbestown – Burgos Circle
Four Seasons Salcedo
The Promenade – Greenhills
