Here at Pacific Punch, we jump for java and cool free stuff. To celebrate National Coffee Day, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, or CBTL for short, is offering both at the “Trade Your Cup Up” event in West Hollywood.
Here’s the scoop: Exchange any coffeemaker (from your grandma’s 1960s percolator to your new coffee machine you’re just not that in to) for a FREE Coffee Bean & Tea Kaldi Machine, a $180 value. Take your pick from black, red or white. If you’re not familiar with Kaldi, it’s like the Nespresso machine – a single cup coffee machine to use one of those colors of the rainbow capsules with. Like the coffee machine, CBTL also has their own drink capsules with cute little symbols on them to boot.
Also, to sweeten the deal, the first 200 people will get a free CBTL Milk Frother ($59). And the 12 signature varieties of CBTL Beverage Capsules, including espresso, coffee, and tea, will be avail to sample.
When: Saturday, September 29, 2012
11 a.m. – 5 p.m. (or until the free swag is gone)
Where: 8775 W. Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood, CA 90069
(in the parking lot adjacent to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®)
Rules: The event is free, but no getting greedy. It’s only one per person.
And not to worry about waste, your old coffee machine will be recycled by Athens Services to be properly recycled or redistributed to non-profits and schools throughout Los Angeles by LAShares.org, a non-profit material reuse program. It’s a win-win.
