CBTL’s planner has deeper story of changing lives + how to start your Giving Journey

I am not a coffee lover, but I always love going to CBTL (Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf®). I love how quiet and not crowded the place is and I love the food they are serving specially their vegetable salad and pasta. I also love how their pastry because it’s not too sweet for me, since I don’t drink coffee at all.

As much as I love hanging out and writing my blogpost now at CBTL, I also love how the brand started. A couple is traveling around Europe and experience numerous coffee shops and each of it is unique. So after the couple left and go back to America they’ve been inspired and have an idea about a coffee shop and so The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® was born in Brentwood, California in 1963—the very first of its kind to sell fresh roasted gourmet coffees and teas. Thanks to Herbert and Mona Hyman for a wonderful coffee shop where people can have a quiet time and do whatever they need to and have a great sip of their fave coffee or tea.

Christmas is just around the corner and what better gift to your love ones is a planner where they can write important events in their life and important reminders that they need to jot down. CBTL is also offering their very own planner and what’s different from any other planner is that it helps people who are in need. CBTL is reminding us that we can contribute to the world during this #SeasonOfGiving that its time to share to people who are in need. What I love about the planner is that the icon of the four cover of next year’s Giving Journal is a representation of how The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® commits to give back through their social responsibility. And each month of the year there is a sketch where it will symbolize the commitments of the company to give back and highlighted the advocacies of their partner organizations.


I know you guys already knew how to get your very own Giving Journal, but I just love to remind you on how:

It already started last October 22, customer can already begin their Giving Journey by collecting stamps for the 2017 Giving Journal.


Each stamp card consists of 12 circles with corresponding purchased drink assignments. All 12 stamps must be accumulated in one stamp card to claim the journal. A box of CBTL™ capsules earns the customer two stamps, while any CBTL™ Single Serve Beverage System purchase automatically allows a customer to claim the 2017 Giving Journal.

Available in 4 colors—rose, purple, gray, and turquoise, the Giving Journal is a useful planner and a medium for generosity where you can begin writing the beautiful story of your own Giving Journey.

Through the 2017 Giving Journal, you empower scholars by giving them gift of education through the Real LIFE Foundation, the Giving Journal’s beneficiary since 2011. By supporting their educational needs, you bring them one step closer to achieving their goals, enabling their dreams to take flight.
