Wife and I are thoroughly addicted to it - Panera Bread refuses to tell us the brand! We did, however do some research and the company that makes their coffee is a high-end coffee-bean producer that owns its own farms in South America. That manufacturer also private-labels for (of all places) Winn Dixie under the Winn & Lovett Premium brand. We love the hazelnut blend, and the Winn & Lovett package says "Creamy Hazelnut." It is EXACTLY the same as what you buy at Panera Bread. Incredibly smooth and delicious. I know, because I spoke with the rep at the coffee company (the company's name escapes me at the moment) and he personally told me his company private-labels for the above.

BTW we love the Panera Bread on Atlantic Blvd the best --- the one near us (Baymeadows) is not the cleanest, is too dark, tables are too shallow, and is often a zoo.

Thanks in advance, everyone!

Winn-Lovett coffee is the only coffee I will drink now, I had the chance to visit with a representatives of the company, they are very very earth friendly. They are some of the best gourmet coffee beans around, although they are roasted to the specifics of the company that buy them (McDonalds) which is the only one that wants them roasted darker. Starbucks; which prefers a closer to a burnt coffee bean and Winn-Lovett is all medium roast.

Wife and I are addicted to Luzianne. Case closed. Authentic, SOUTHERN tea. I probably prefer Southern because, by the grace of God, I am a Southerner. If we are out and about looking for something to eat, we will do all we can to choose a place that brews Luzianne. Our current favorite lunch place is 5 Guys Burgers & Fries, and they serve up fresh-brewed Luzianne, to match their fresh burgers and fries.

It is most likely republic of tea. I found the Acai green tea on their website and it's discontinued. I guarantee Panera bought the patten.

I'm strung out on their tea as well. I don't care about the brand but have recently been worrying about what is in the tea. Also recently getting a mild allergic reation and actually trying to quit drinking it

Panera Tea is Awesome!! If it is Republic of Tea, that stuff is great too. You can buy that in high end restaurants in some big airports. It's pretty expensive though, airport or not. It was actually the first tea I had on my midtour from Iraq. Kept the bottle for years because it reminded me of the first time I left that hell hole.

Actually, the Acai green tea is still in the Republic of Tea catalog. I buy it all the time, and I'm certain it's the same tea that Panera has. The tins of 50 are a great deal, and I order online frequently. Some of their teas are seasonal, so are only available at various times during the year. I especially like their full-leaf rose tea, but it's only available seasonally. For a great dessert tasting tea, try the new Cuppa Cake Caramel and Vanilla black tea. It's wonderfully delicious.
