About this coffee

Coffee story

Created by Alfred Peet and long a favorite of Peet's baristas, Garuda is one of our first blends. It originates in the islands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, where each single-origin coffee develops distinctly different flavor characteristics due to the unique production and processing methods across the archipelago. Hand-pulped village coffees impart a rustic earthiness and nutty flavors; fully washed beans lend a lively spark; the blend exudes syrupy consistency and is infused with tropical airs.

We don't know if the mythical bird that is the namesake of the blend visited each of the coffee islands, from Sumatra to Sulawesi to Java to Timor, and on to Irian Jaya/Papua New Guinea and the spice islands of the Moluccas, but we craft Garuda to reflect their diversity. We think it makes an excellent espresso, and we know it makes a big, satisfying cup.

Brewing Tips

A long time favorite of Peet's baristas used to pull the perfect espresso.

My favorite coffee! Nutty, smooth, full bodied. Wonderful for both brewed coffee and espresso shots.

Garuda Blend is what got me hooked on Peet's - I never was much of a coffee drinker until I experienced the lush smoothness and silky delight that is Garuda. Truly one the finest, thank you Peet's.

Been a Peet's lover for a long time and am very pleased with your Wrigley Building location here in Chicago. There is never a time I've walked in and grabbed a dark roast and had it disappoint, especially the Garuda Blend. OMG. mmm! Woo! :D

Garuda has been my favorite Peet's blend since the first cup I tried in 1976 at the original Peet's location on Santa Cruz Ave in Menlo Park. As a college student at the time, having a cup of Peet's with my then-girlfriend-now-wife was an activity that helped to cement our relationship. It tasted so rich and full-bodied that it seemed like an entire meal by itself. In the nearly 40 years since, we have always searched out a Peet's location wherever we've lived - and if there was none nearby we would mail-order several pounds of Garuda and Major Dickason every few months. Now we can walk from our house to Peet's in Lake Oswego OR. Life is good!

Garuda and I have been 'going steady' for many years. The flavor of this wonderful blend is tops for me. I have to admit that I take my Garuda on trips and if that is not an option I just take a break from coffee altogether for a couple of days. Nothing I have ever had comes close to the comfort of that morning cup of Garuda. The grocery stores in the desert here around Palm Springs do not carry this blend so I have a friend pick it up every couple of weeks from the coast. How about a shop out here? We need it badly!
