Peet's Coffee & Tea
|Roaster Location:||Berkeley, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||November 2003|
The pungently sweet roast dominates, but with a light touch. Shimmers of apple and pear glint in the aroma, flowers and dark chocolate in the cup. The finish is cleanly bittersweet but mildly astringent.
Originally founded by the legendary Alfred Peet, one of American specialty coffee's pioneers, Peet's is now a publicly traded corporation that so far has managed a slow, careful expansion from its intensely loyalist base in the San Francisco Bay area. Peet's signature, deep roast is often imitated but less often duplicated. This holiday blend embodies a particularly gentle and lively version of the Peet's roast style. Visit
