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.

Brewing Tips

Brew it in a French press for a perfect cup, or enjoy it as an exquisite espresso.

Somehow full-bodied but mellow, powerful but not bitter,
just right whether I have it ground for drip or our french press…
a treasure, and an 'enhancer' whenever we have it!

I first tried this this coffee at the Rose st. shop in Berkeley back in the mid 70's. There were crowds of regulars hanging on all four corners outside every morning and Peet was working in the back of the shop, usually roasting. I couldn't believe that coffee- it was so strong and full of flavor so it was quite a novelty and quickly became an addiction to many including myself. And it became a local legend-people would say " You've got to try this coffee!".

My sister send me a lb of this coffee and I must say I have not tasted a better full bodied coffee. I usually dont buy coffee from commercial chains and look for local roasters but I have to admit this one is just amazingly aromatic and deep.

My first exposure to Peet's Coffee came when our grocery store promoted Peet's Christmas blend several years ago. Once the Christmas Blend was gone, I tried the Major Dickason's and was hooked. I have tried other Peet's coffees, but keep going back to the Major. Keep it up Peet's, don't change a thing.

Complex, full bodied and fantastic flavor, Starbucks has nothing on this blend! I was in Martha's Vineyard, last week shopping for groceries and saw Major Dickason's Blend on the shelf and decided it was time to try other coffees and I am so glad I did. This will be my coffee for a long time to come. I look forward to waking up to this coffee every day. Phenomenal when made in French Press. Peet you better not discontinue this blend!

My first training task when I went to work for a small software company was how to make the coffee for the office. The only acceptable starting material was Major Dickason's. It has been my #1 choice since then and is the "house Blend" at my house :-)

For years, I had been trying to find the perfect coffee. A coffee that is rich and smooth. A coffee with a mild acidity but with a bright quality that I enjoy. And I finally did it! Major Dickason's is it! Whatever types of coffee are blended to make unique brew is what I have always been looking for! I love you Major D!

Major Dickason's Blend is like a perfectly orchestrated symphony. Five coffees, each with very different flavors on their own, combine for the smoothest cup with sneaky peaks of flavor! It's so easy and rewarding to drink!
