About this coffee

Coffee story

A loyal customer of our original Berkeley store, retired army officer Key Dickason brought the idea for our most beloved blend to Mr. Peet in 1969. Intrigued, our founder worked with the local gourmand and coffee aficionado to refine it. They sampled countless combinations before arriving at what is now our all-time bestseller. The result was so good, Alfred Peet decided naming it after his friend wasn't enough — Dickason's rich, complex blend also deserved a promotion from sergeant to major.


Major Dickason's combines the best origin coffees from the world's premier growing regions, each imparting its distinctive regional characteristics while still effortlessly rounding into a smooth, balanced cup. Over the years, it has become the coffee that epitomizes Peet's: flavorful, deeply roasted, and unsurpassingly satisfying. But for us, Major D's is just like a relationship with an old friend. We'll always remember it as the story of a customer's passion, an expert's palate, and a shared love of coffee.

On Christmas day 2016 My stepmother gave me a brand new never opened Major Dickason's Blend Decaf. I drink Cameron's coffee in the morning and decided to try the decaf in the afternoon with a snack. I have to say it's really good. I put most of it in a large glass jar to keep it fresh and I will be using the leftover from the bag first. I have to say the coffee isn't bitter and has a nice rich taste to it for non flavored coffee. I'll just be sad when it's finally gone, since I can't order online and you don't have it available that I know in Wisconsin. I love the smell of it too, it has a great smell and taste to it. The only reason I gave it four stars is because I want to drink it for awhile to put it to the test.

Major Dickinson's is my very favorite. In fact, I am afraid to try anything else, because I do not think anything is better. I had some sitting in my filter for the next day's cup and the night before I started walking into my kitchen and received the smell of just the dry grounds. Wow! I thought no one comes close to Peet's MD. I have a one cup machine and the fantastic odor packed a punch! Thanks Peet's!

Love the MD blend. I use it almost exclusively to make espresso. I constantly experiment and try espresso beans from other roasters but always keep coming back to Peet's MD blend.
