Every 'Friends' Character Has Their Own Drink at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf This Summer
Central Perk coffee beans will also be available to celebrate the sitcom's 25th anniversary.
I don’t want to make you feel old, but it’s almost impossible not to balk at the passage of time when you realize the NBC sitcom Friends is officially 25 years old. Yes, the pilot episode aired September 22, 1994, and could now, age-wise, feasibly have moved in with Chandler and Joey. The series about six, uh, friends who cohabitate in each other’s ridiculously well-appointed New York City apartments came at the rise of the new wave (at the time) of coffee shop culture, which is why Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, and Joey could often be found populated the plush couch in the middle of their local espresso-slinging Central Perk. Perhaps, then, there’s no more fitting tribute to celebrate the show's anniversary than by giving all six main cast members their own drink at a real-life coffee shop.
Starting July 31, 2019, Friends fans can head to any The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf location to choose one of six drink options named after the cast, or buy official Central Perk-branded coffee and tea to make at home, part of an official partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
Here are all six Friends-themed drinks and their descriptions, courtesy of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf:
The Joey (Mango Cold Brew Tea) — The sweet, juicy flavor of mango pairs with a fruity cold brew tea for an enticing and seductive treat that is sure to turn heads just like Joey Tribbiani’s and ask, “How you doin’?”
The Monica (Midnight Mocha Cold Brew) – Cold brew perfection is here. Rich, dark chocolate syrup combined with our bold, 20-hour steeped cold brew creates precisely balanced flavors of coffee and chocolate for perfectionists like Monica Geller.
