AS OF JUNE 8TH COFFEE BEAN AND TEA LEAF STORES WILL NO LONGER BE KOSHER CERTIFIED BY KOSHER LA

 

 

Dear Kosher LA Patrons,

As you know, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf has decided to change course from being exclusively Kosher.

As of June 8th, 2020, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf stores will no longer be under Kosher LA supervision, and therefore we cannot certify as Kosher any of the hand-crafted beverages, food items, etc.

We have enjoyed providing the community with this very unique Kosher experience over the past 20 plus years.

Wishing all the communities B’Sorot Tovot,

Rabbi M. Benzaquen
Rabbi J. Benzaquen
