"The One Where 'Friends' Turns 25" is almost upon us, with the hit NBC sitcom set to hit that milestone later this year. To celebrate, its parent company, Warner Bros., is partnering with a coffee company to bring Central Perk's finest beverage directly into fans' homes.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf announced this week that they have joined forces to produce a signature collection inspired by the iconic "Friends" hangout spot, and all the cups of joe the characters tossed back over 10 seasons. The line includes coffees Central Perk Dark Roast and Central Perk Medium Roast, and a black tea called Central Perk Tea.
And if you want to hit pause on your umpteenth Netflix (for now) rewatch of the series and head into an actual Coffee Bean location, an assortment of specialty drinks tied to each "Friends" character awaits. They are:
- 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.
- The Rachel (Matcha Latte) – Indulge yourself like Rachel Green, with the lightly sweetened blend of ceremonial grade matcha with our silky vanilla powder and milk. Perfect for the trendsetters and matcha enthusiasts alike.
- The Ross (Classic Flat White) – No awkwardness here, this beverage is sophisticated and sleek, just how Ross Geller wants to be. Freshly pulled espresso shots finished with lightly aerated milk, makes for a sweet, velvety refreshment. Get ready to be taken seriously.
- The Chandler (Caramel Coconut Latte) – It won’t be hard to commit to this drink. A blend of creamy coconut and toasted caramel infused with our extroverted espresso that not even Chandler Bing can say no to.
- The Phoebe (Cookies and Cream Ice Blended) – The combination of sweet, creamy vanilla, a splash of espresso and chocolate cookie pieces that is guaranteed to put a pep in your step and have you singing just like Phoebe Buffay.
It may not be a real Central Perk location, but this promotion is the next best thing. We'll be there for brew. (Sorry.)
