About this coffee


Coffee Story

In the last 24 years, we've created 24 different Holiday Blends, and our customers have rejoiced in all of them, knock on wood (and spice, and sumptuous body). The secret is in selection, and the time we take to create a blend expressing the particular character of the current crop year.

From the late fall and winter, when we taste what's coming in from the Indo-Pacific, to the spring when Central America shines, to early summer, when the best East Africans arrive on our shores, we cup and choose, cup and choose, salting away the most exceptional, most intriguing lots. The coffees themselves guide the process; where great flavor is found, Peet's follows.

The finest washed-process coffee of the Indo-Pacific hails from the remote interior highlands of Papua New Guinea. Specifically the Western Highlands, specifically the Wahgi Valley, and specifically Kimel Plantation, which through the years has proven one of the finest New Guineas grown. This year we found its deep green, double washed beans heavy with hallmark tropical fruit, juicy, and seductively sweet-savory.

From the wet-hulled side we chose Sumatra, not from any particular zone but by profile, angling for more fruitiness—of the pipe tobacco kind—spicy aromatics, and the caramel heft that reminds us of so many Holiday foods. One at a time over months of deliveries we reserved lots of this character, eschewing aged coffees for this year's edition, so look for a rounder, fruit-forward blend with all of the dazzle but less finishing dryness.

What would the Holidays—and Holiday Blend—be without chocolate, bittersweet, bright and rich, as can only be tasted in the finest Antigua coffees? And finishing on a smooth note, we selected several outstanding lots of Kenya, tapped for their floral, juicy, dark berry sweetness and silky texture.

That's it. Four seasons, four coffees, each brilliant in its own right, brought into harmonious whole in Peet's Holiday Blend. For the 25th straight time, and starting with the best coffees in the world, we finish with a spicy, rich, and full-bodied blend that's perfectly suited to the celebratory time of year.
