Each B’Bite is packed with the essential nutrients to help get you through your day. B’Bites’s goal is to provide an image that promotes wellness and encourages people to make healthy choices.
“We are really excited to work with such a great local business,” says Gus Shukeireh, Partner. “There are so many amazing new brands that we have here in the Metro Detroit Area that really should be recognized and showcased. We are lucky to partner with the talent of other local small businesses like B’Bites and have them in our stores.” B’Bites owner and founder, Billie Jo Delfin, talks about first working with Bean and Tea Company, “I had met with Yvette, the Operations Director and we immediately hit it off. I believe that things happen for a reason and it just so happened that she was looking to bring in gluten free snack options and the bonus being that we were also a local company. Bean and Tea is the perfect place to carry the Bites which are currently being sold at both the Troy and the Madison Heights locations.”
Bean and Tea Company prides itself on buying local, Michigan made products, including their roaster, ensuring that the beans are always fresh daily. They are committed to the communities and supporting any and all local businesses they can through their coffee shops.
Offering two continuously brewed coffees daily, the first is the Bean and Tea blend which is made up of four-parts South American and one part African which delivers a medium roast blend with a smooth after-taste. The darker roast, Portofino, conveys a deeper and bolder flavor for those who prefer a stronger coffee taste. If either of those options don't suffice, they offer pour-over options of select blends along with a full line of espresso beverages.
Bean and Tea Company also offers 25 varieties of loose leaf tea selections including black, oolong, green, white, herbal and fruit infusions which can be ordered by the glass or purchased by the ounce to enjoy at home. Coffee selections are also sold by the pound at all locations.
The first location opened in Troy (3495 Rochester Road) earlier in 2014 then in Madison Heights (1413 West 14 Mile Rd) last month, and also their third location in Clarkston (6315 Sashabaw Rd) is on schedule to open this summer.
Bean and Tea Company is also looking for local organizations, foundations and schools to partner with within the communities the shops reside in.
