|This topic is for Discussion of Latest: Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Co the Official Specialty Coffee of WDW and Disneyland|
Joffrey's Coffee & Tea Co. and Disney have entered into a long-term agreement that makes them the official specialty coffee of Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort and Disney Vacation Club. The agreement includes Aulani but does not include the Disney Cruise Line. Joffrey's is the company that has operated the standalone coffee and pastry kiosks throughout Walt Disney World since 1995. They have also supplied the espresso and specialty coffee blends for the Signature dining restaurants at WDW and Disneyland. Their French Roast will be the Joffrey's specialty coffee orffered at quick-service and table service restaurants. The agreement does not affect Disney's previous agreement that allows Starbucks to open a sinlge location in each park and serve their coffee there.

|I'm not a coffee person by any stretch, but I would assume this is an improvement over the Nestle stuff of ill-repute they've been serving, right?|
I saw that Starbucks was exempt from the agreement; will the same exception be used for the Twinnings tea shop at the UK pavilion in Epcot?

|I know that Joffrey's already runs a lot of the coffee kiosks. At Epcot, they run the one by Universe of Energy, between Canada and the UK Pavilions, and between American Adventure and Italy. Their coffee is okay.|

|Anything is better than that awful Nescafe' dreck they've been serving for years. |
But I'm happy to get my Starbucks on Buena Vista Street for every theme park visit. It's the biggest, fastest Starbucks I've ever seen in my life, handling huge lines ordering thousands of drinks per hour like it was an Easter egg roll. Every Disney theme park should have a Starbucks like Buena Vista Street does!

|That's a good move. I don't know the new brand, but Nescafe is really bad and so that must be an improvement.|
At DLP the Italian brand Segafredo replaced Nestle last year.

Dont go over the Christmas holidays. My wait for coffee was almost as long as my husbands 40 minute wait in the RSR FP line.

|I was there for Christmas too...truthfully didn't wait in the line when it seemed too long, probably waited the longest about 15 mins. |

|Granted I'm not a coffee drinker, but I can't imagine waiting 15 minutes for a beverage. Even at a really busy bar that seems a little ridiculous. But I'm glad they're turning a healthy profit!|

After what he did to Ned Stark, the little ****** deserves whatever he gets!!!
