CBTL’s Cold Brew

Coffee enthusiasts rejoice as The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf introduces the coolest brew in town. Launched nationwide, The Coffee Bean’s cold brew is made from coffee grounds that has been steeped for 20 hours in filtered cold water. Brewing cold enhances the flavour for a smooth and bold finish. Now why is this special? Because it is able to cater to those who are light coffee drinks and this has a lighter taste than the usual brew coffee or iced coffee. This is something new for The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and they have ample stock to cater to the taste of light coffee drinks. So grab it while it lasts.

Training Manager, Fairuz Ibrahim shares “Our cold brew is handcrafted. During the process, every batch is carefully stirred to soak every coffee ground to bring out all of the flavours of the cold brew.” The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s cold brew is available in four flavours – original, latte, hazelnut latte and vanilla latte and is also available as a decaf option. In order to maintain the quality of the cold brew, each outlet only carries a certain amount and a new batch is made and delivered daily.  Fairuz adds that the difference between an iced coffee and a cold brew coffee are very distinct in mainly how both are processed, “an iced coffee refers to coffee that is brewed hot and then chilled by pouring over or by adding ice. Our cold brew uses time rather than heat to extract the flavours from the coffee beans.”


Check out the Cold Brew drink from CBTL. Highly recommended for those who does take strong coffee

I kinda like it actually and as for the flavoured ones, it will be vanilla latte

Marketing Manager, Ak Addeni Pg Tajuddin shares “There is definitely a distinct difference in flavor between our iced coffees and cold brews and we believe our customers will also pick up the difference. Our Cold brew is light and lower in caffeine and is perfect as a quick refreshment.”

Customers can enjoy a cup of cold brew for as low as $3.00. Ak Addeni adds “Customers will also find that we have maintained the pricing of our cold brews to be the same as our iced coffees. We want our customers to enjoy our coffees which ever way that brings them happiness and however they want to experience it.”

So if you wanna try the cold brew, my recommendations is not to add sugar or syrup then you won’t the whole feel of the cold brew. If you want something sweeter, then I suggest try the flavoured ones – latte, hazelnut latte (sweetest of the lot) or the vanilla latte.

Reopening at Tutong

A new look. A new feel. Baiduri Bank is heading to the right direction and not just focusing in the bandar area but also outside of bandar. Yesterday Baiduri Bank reopened its Tutong branch at its new location at Petani Mall due to its increasing demands.

Not only that but Baiduri Bank has been in spotlight for achieving accolades such as The Best Banking Group for Brunei 2016 recognized by World Finance (a record feat of making it 8th in a row) and also being awarded “Domestic Retail Bank of the Year for Brunei 2016” by the Asian Banking & Finance Magazine. Following that the global rating agency Standard and Poor affirmed Baiduri Bank’s rating of “BBB” which means the outlook set to stable. This is one of the reasons why Baiduri Bank remains in the top three banks in Brunei Darussalam.

Pierre Imhof, the CEO of Baiduri Bank, shared his appreciation to the customers in Tutong and despite the increase usage of the digital world and e-banking, having a branch presence is still relevant and important and that’s one way to create the bond with their clients.

The bank will be focusing on three main areas namely improving service quality and reliability, increasing professionalism in the workforce and introducing more products and services.

For me, I’m looking forward for this unique product named Merchant Suite which will be introduced pretty soon. With this platform, you don’t need a website to sell your products or services. I will share with you once I have more details on this cool platform and I believe it will be a huge hit among the consumers here in Brunei.

Present during the relaunch was Yusof Hj Abdul Rahman, managing director of the Authoriti Monetari Brunei Darussalam who was the guest of honour and also graced the opening of the relocated Baiduri branch. Pg Azaleen Pg Dato Hj Mustapha, head of retail, Baiduri Bank and Tutong branch Sim Ai Hua led the tour of the premises.

The event had an interesting ambience. Decorated with the white followers and white fences, it gave a different touch for the invited guests. Good job, Collective Arts, for recreating a soothing atmosphere for a launch.

Interesting fact. Baiduri bank made its presence in Tutong since 2004.
