About this coffee

Coffee story

Roast: Medium Roast
Process: Washed, Natural
Growing Region: Blend, Latin America, East Africa


Some have described Alfred Peet as the “big bang”* of craft coffee – the one who started it all. When he set up shop in Berkeley back in 1966, he transformed America’s expectations of the depth, body and flavor in our cups. And that pursuit of greatness has never stopped.

In celebration of our 50th year, we’re honoring his legacy by taking a bold step ahead. Like Mr. Peet’s pioneering dark roasts, our new signature blend expands the horizon of what coffee can be: vibrant, full-flavored, boldly original, and roasted to medium-bodied perfection.

If you love Major Dickason’s one-of-a-kind taste, you’ll find a kindred spirit in Big Bang™. This blend is crafted from some of the same premium coffees, as Major Dickason’s, but with a twist, thanks to the heavenly, aromatic citrus of Ethiopian Super Natural. It’s the perfect coffee to honor the man who still inspires us every day.

Join us in raising our mugs to 50 years of flavor, friends, and fanatical coffee love as we ring in the next 50 with a Big Bang.

*Corby Kummer, author of “The Joy of Coffee” and a senior editor at The Atlantic Monthly, called Mr. Peet the “big bang” of coffee in Mr. Peet’s 2007 NYT obituary.

So far I have tried Bing Bang and Major D coffee and have to say big bang has a better taste. It will give you the jitters right away. I recommend Big Bang for a morning coffee that will keep you awake all day.

It's just my first pot of Big Bang, but I enjoyed it. Possibly the best whole been bought in a supermarket since leaving western Europe for the States 25+ years ago. It is simple but flavorful. Smooth enough to work by. Yes, it's a medium roast, so don't buy it, or diss it, if you are thoroughly committed to dark roasts. Perhaps it's the Ethiopian component, as I seems often to like Ethiopian beans.

I love this blend, I love the medium roast, I've made it my Peetnik's regular ever since it was introduced.

Damn good cup of coffee. It has a nice depth AND a nice edge, when you brew it the right strength. And, its easier to get right than a Kenya bean. LOVE it.
