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.

Looking for a special occasion coffee blend today and ran across major Dickason's blend. Have never even considered Peet's coffee before as the Seattle brands are more prevalent where i shop. Today I found inventory low of those other brands so chose Peet's to give a try. I am very surprised! Makes one mighty fine iced mocha. Rich and full of flavor, it blends well with Almond Milk and unsweetened chocolate (I am diabetic). As of this moment I am a Peet's fan.

I just tried Pee'ts Coffee AND Major Dickason's blend for the first time. I was worried that I would not get a great expresso with crema, but I did! Thank you!

Being an uneducated coffee person, I met Peets thru my girlfriend (now wife) who was a Peets only coffee person that had just moved from S.F. to Florida. According to her, "Peets, now that's real coffee" So I am now married (22 years) to both her and Peets So glad we can now purchase it at 2 local grocery chains and when visiting Florida, at Walmart!

It took me about seven years to master my own blend that is made for me in Austin, Texas....I didn't think I would ever find a commercial blend as good but I believe Major Dickason's has nailed it. Congratulations!

Been drinking Peet's since my North Berkeley days in the late 60's. I even knew Major Dickason's granddaughter, Troy, when I went to college in Turlock and she lived in a trailer nearby with her baby. This was my favorite coffee. I have to say, it's still pretty good, but not surprisingly, mass production hasn't improved it.

I was trying to find a good coffee that would complete with Starbucks Casi Cielo blend which is their only drinkable coffee and only available for about six weeks a year. I had heard rave reivews about Peet's but being in the Midwest, it was only pipe dream. Our local grocer recently started carrying it and today I purchased my first bag of Major Dickason's Blend. Damn you Starbucks and your stingy offerings of drinkable coffee for only six weeks a year. Peet's has me for life!

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!
