CBTL coffee machine giveaway

June 14, 2012

Summer has officially in full bloom in Austin and by full bloom, I mean high 90s. Which sadly, are the cooler temperatures for Austin. We’ll be in the 100s soon. I’ve been loving my CBTL coffee machine and trying out all the different flavor cartridges. Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if I would like to give away a machine to my readers and I had to say Yes!

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is hosting a recipe contest that uses one of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s English Breakfast, Tropical Passion, Moroccan Mint, or Chai Teas as a “secret ingredient” in honor of National Iced Tea Month (June).

The CBTL machine has three-in-one coffee, tea, and espresso capabilities that enable users to easily recreate their favorite The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf specialty beverages at home, with the touch of a button.
The specific model that I picked out for you guys is the Kaldi, more details can be found at She’s a beauty! If I could, I would definitely purchased the Kaldi!
