Coffee Bean Miami - Kosher?
Is the new coffee bean in miami kosher like in LA?
I'm pretty sure it's franchised, so the likelihood is no, but given its location, it's feasible.
I called them.
There is currently no supervision on the location but they are looking into it.
All of their salads and sandwiches are from Majestic Caterers which is ORB certified and are packaged and labeled as such. Their pastries are from the same caterer, but are not packaged and labeled kosher.
All of their coffee products/syrups/bases are kosher and they will be glad to show anyone packaging.
And again, they are in the process of getting local certification.
Sounds like a great addition to the South Florida scene!
Their coffee is terrible (IMHO) but the scones are good. The bagels are good but don't really taste like bagels. Their ice blends are wonderful but ridiculously expensive.
FYI to my SoCal neighbors: I was told by someone in a standalone CBTL that the stands in the Ralph's stores will no longer be CBTL very shortly. No idea what that will mean for the kashrut status.
I'm not a coffee drinker, but I do like their ice blendeds. The coffee is not as bitter as Starbucks. Their powders are good and kosher, also, they have no sugar added ones.
