OUR HISTORY

Back In The Day.

On the day Alfred Peet opened his first coffee store on the corner of Walnut and Vine Streets in Berkeley, CA, he quietly began a revolution in the way Americans experienced the taste and quality of their coffee – a revolution that persists to this day. Born in Holland, Alfred Peet grew up in the coffee trade and moved to America after World War II. Appalled at the poor quality of coffee being consumed by Americans, he became inspired to open the first Peet’s Coffee & Tea store on April 1, 1966. His style of coffee was a radical departure from what was then available, emphasizing smaller batches, freshness, superior quality beans, and a darker roasting style that produced coffee with richness and complexity. By 1969, Peet’s Coffee & Tea became a gathering place for the coffee devotees, and this success attracted other artisan food purveyors to the neighborhood, which soon became known as the Gourmet Ghetto. Alfred Peet further catalyzed the specialty coffee movement when he mentored and inspired a generation of coffee entrepreneurs, including the founders of Starbucks, whom he supplied with Peet’s roasted beans during their first years of operation. Over the past four decades, Peet’s growth has been fueled by ever increasing numbers of coffee lovers in the San Francisco Bay Area and across the nation. With each generation of Peet’s leadership, we have remained true to the quality tenets of our founder, inspired by the same unrelenting pursuit of quality. Our purpose has not changed since 1966 – to seek out opportunities to raise the expectations of American coffee drinkers by attracting and serving those who truly love the taste of coffee, for whom a cup of coffee could only mean a cup of Peet’s.

The Identity.

The new Peet’s logo is an illustrated top hat, designed to convey Peet’s history in coffee roasting and its commitment to great customer service. Our company logo is the single most visible representation of our company. Used effectively, our logo will help build greater awareness and understanding of our company.

To effectively identify Peet’s materials, our lockup needs to be visible. This is done by understanding the appropriate use of clear space. An invisible rectangular border, equal in width to “X”, should be maintained around the perimeter of the logo.

A consistent adherence to the color guidelines will help build visibility and recognition of the customers’ association with the our new identity. Hence, we keep our logo simple and within a narrow range of colors.

The Ribbon Saves The Mark In Scetchy Situations.

Sometimes the logo has to be applied to a darker background such as a photo or a solid color background. In these dark and rough situations, apply the ribbon to neutralize the background for the logo. When using the preferable oatmeal colored ribbon, use the 2 colored logo. When using the orange colored ribbon, use the one colored version.

Major Dickason.

A coffee born of friendship, this full-bodied, complex blend was the combined effort of Key Dickason, a retired army officer and a regular at our original Berkeley store, and Alfred Peet, our founder. Together they have sampled combinations of coffees until they arrived at what is now more one of our most popular blends. Of course we named it after our friend and promoted him to Major in process.

House Blend.

A perennial customer favorite. House Blend combines the lively, well-balanced flavors of Latin American coffees for a medium body and pleasant, satisfying taste.

French Roast.

We blend only high-grown, hard-bean coffees that are dense enough to stand up to this roast. It is not a coffee for the cautious. The deep, dark glistening beans brew a bold cup of coffee with pronounced smoky overtones.

Lady Decaf.

The Lady Decaf is darker than our normal roast and consequently develops an intense, full-bodied flavor from the blend of Pacific and Latin American origins. The aroma is balanced and complex, and the beans glisten with natural oils.

Panama Estate.

Sumatra’s coffees are grown almost exclusively by smallholders and processed by the semi washed or wet-hulled method. The fruit is pulped on the farm, often by means of a hand cranked mill, and the seeds, still encased in an endocarp, washed in a basket or bucket.
