Friends fans and coffee fans unite! Central Perk Coffee is becoming a reality in 2023 as Warner Bros is teaming up with CenPer Holdings to open up a Friends-themed coffeehouse. Central Perk Coffeehouse will no longer just be a set where Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler, and Ross hung out, but next year it will be a place where you and your friends and go and enjoy a nice cup of coffee.
“Central Perk is more than just a coffeehouse, it was a home away from home for our six favorite FRIENDS,” said Peter van Roden, SVP, Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. “Working closely with the CenPer Holdings team in creating this fresh, yet familiar environment, we’re looking forward to giving fans a Central Perk of their own — coffeehouses that captures the heart of the show while delivering a first-class coffee experience.”
The exact date and location of the coffeehouse are still being kept under wraps, although personally I can’t imagine the first location being anywhere else than New York City since that’s where the show takes place. Fans don’t have to wait to get their Central Perk Coffee fix, however, because you can now order your very own bag of beans online.
Available at www.centralperk.com, fans can purchase a variety of coffee blends in either ground, whole bean, or even single-serve pods. There’s the “How You Doin?” (medium roast), “Pivot Blend” (medium/dark roast), and “We Were On A Coffee Break” (dark roast) for purchase. You can buy individual bags or subscribe and have bags delivered straight to your door every 15, 30, 60, or 90 days. Beginning today, if you’re one of the first 6,000 new Central Perk Coffee subscribers, you will receive a complimentary collectable can of “How You Doin’?” coffee that comes individually numbered.
