If you’re a coffee lover like me, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Peet’s Coffee. Peet’s Coffee began with a little coffee store in Berkeley, California that Alfred Peet founded in 1966. He started something of a coffee revolution by bringing something different, his coffee was made in small batches with fresh beans that was rich and complex. The Artisan coffee movement gained momentum and brought about a whole new style, much of what you see today. Today Peet’s Coffee has a large line of different roasts and flavors that originate from all parts of the world.
Since I grew up in the Bay Area, I always get a strong sense of pride when I find out that a company or brand I’ve been familiar with my whole life originated from my area. This was the case again with Peet’s Coffee. Recently I received a package from Peet’s, containing their newest product in two flavors. Peet’s has taken 5 years to perfect their recipe for single cup coffee brewers and now sells Peet’s single cups! The package I received contained two flavors.
The first flavor I received was Café Domingo. This is a medium roast blend crafted from three Latin-American coffees. This particular blend is smooth and balanced and said to have hints of toffee sweetness and a crisp and clean finish.
The second flavor I received was Major Dickason’s Blend. This is Peet’s Coffee’s all-time best seller, it is rich, smooth and complex, full-bodied and multi-layered.
Me, being the coffee lover that I am, I couldn’t wait to get started on tasting these two! They both sound delicious and unique.
