Friends fans who have ever wished for a sip of real Central Perk coffee are in for a treat.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the 90s sitcom that transcended generations, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf collaborated with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to create special edition Central Perk Coffee and Central Perk Tea products.

They include Central Perk Medium Roast and Central Perk Dark Roast beans, described as nutty, aromatic and sweet for a drink “that will make you feel like you're sipping a java from Central Perk”, alongside a Central Perk Tea, blended with citrus for a refreshing cuppa.

Fans can grab a Friends-themed beverage, such as The Joey Mango Cold Brew Tea

Available now for purchase online, the special edition products will be available in retail stores in the US from 31 July until the end of the summer.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will also launch limited-edition themed specialty beverages named after the show's beloved characters until the end of August.

On the menu is The Joey Mango Cold Brew Tea and The Monica Midnight Mocha Cold Brew, or fans could pick up The Rachel Matcha Latte and The Ross Classic Flat White for a will-they-won’t-they pairing – the perfect way to take advantage of the buy-one-get-one-free offer on 4 August, aka Nation Friendship Day.
