Wake up and smell the coffee

17 Aug

Which is your favourite coffee shop in Kuwait? We know which one you can find on every corner…..but quantity or quality? That’s the issue.One particular ”star” of the show always gives me terribubble stomach pains and I avoid it like the plague…

I noticed recently that in the after Iftar KTV1 soap, the husband and wife were meeting in Caribou Coffee, where they could sit comfortable by a faux fireplace and discuss their day.Caribou has certainly become popular but I’m stuck on Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Although you can find them all over Kuwait now, their headquarters are in Los Angeles and believe it or not, the first one opened in 1968 and  is still open today!

I love the decor too- plain and simple wood furnishings, make you feel cosy and at home.
They have free WiFi in most locations now, delicious coffee and friendly staff- try their scones with butter and jam- almost like the ones granny used to make… and a vantage card that they will stamp every time you buy a coffee.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has several cute holiday drinks too:

* Pumpkin Latte and Ice Blended
* Peppermint Latte and Ice Blended
* Chocolate Orange, Dark Chocolate Raspberry, and Dark Chocolate Peppermint

They also offer a limited edition Holiday Blend coffee and Winter Dream tea.

You can find their website here
