Seattle has its Starbucks and Southern California has Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Well, so does the rest of the world, but it originated here, the first store opening in Brentwood in 1963. Today the company celebrates with free 16-ounce Anniversary Coffee or Tea for all at any participating Coffee Bean location, which pretty much means any around Los Angeles. We may have a local coffee roaster thing going on around here, and we may even prefer other coffee or tea, but free is free. Happy Birthday!
