Position: Shift Supervisor

About Us:

Born and brewed in Southern California since 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea
Leaf has become one of the world's largest independent and privately owned
specialty coffee and tea retailers. In 1963 we opened our very first store in
Brentwood, California. Today we have over 1100 stores in 31 countries as well
as regional offices in Singapore and Malaysia. We have always had a creative
and caring spirit. This energy embodied by our Team Members made us famous and
beloved by our guests, first in Southern California and now around the world.
We are a brand centered around passion. A passion for our premium products, our
people, the guests and everyone we work with around the world. Passion is
contagious, and we've got a serious case of it.

Our Products:

We're known for an unwavering commitment to premium quality coffee and tea, and
have built direct supplier relationships with the best private coffee farms and
tea estates around the world. We select only the top 1% of Arabica beans and
the finest hand plucked, whole leaf tea. All of our coffee and tea blends are
developed at our state of the art facility in Camarillo, CA giving us total
control, for ultimate precision. Once perfected, our beverages are then
prepared locally for maximum freshness. We are constantly seeking out new
trending flavors, innovative development methodologies and cultural flavor
influences. Over the years we have come up with breakthrough beverages like The
Original Ice Blended drink, introduced back in 1989, before frozen coffee was a
craze, or the Tea Latte. We are always looking to formulate the next fan
favorite, making our menu ever-changing and always improving.

Social Responsibility:

We believe we are in business for more than making a profit. We want to
make a difference. We have always done it this way. Back in the day, Herb
Hyman, our founder, advocated for coffee growers and exporters, paying higher
prices to help them grow their business. Today we are making a difference at
every step of the way, from the communities we source from, to our Team Members
in stores, to building a brighter future through investing in our Caring Cup
Program. Our genuine care is evident from seed to cup. It's why our guests feel
comfortable to be themselves and why we are serving so much more than a great
cup of coffee or tea.
