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.

i have been drinking coffee for 59years now, and have finally found that cup of coffee that satisfies my coffee taste. Went trhorugh a lot of brands before finding Major Dickinson's Blend. Think I'll have another cup right now.

Major Dickason's Blend: because, life is too short to drink bad coffee. This coffee is the best warm up my mouth, full of flavor, distinctively Peet's and the reason why I do not buy Star*&^%s coffee. Love it, hope its always available.

I consider myself a coffee snob. I only drink beautifully balanced, full bodied rich coffees that have almost a caramel flavor to them....My first stop is our local Dunn Bros in Woodbury, MN for a beautifully hand crafted four shot Americano. I found Major Dickason's blend while shopping several years back and wanted to find a coffee I could have on hand when needed. Never looked back from that moment. I have a cup of Major Dickason'severy day first thing in the morning. One of the absolute best blends out there. And I consider that a huge compliment from this coffee snob.

Love this coffee but I mix it 50/50 with the Cafe Domingo and I get a coffee that has the perfect flavor for my taste. No matter what brewing method I use it just seems to taste perfect. I am not a coffee snob and could not tell you a top notch bean from an inferior one but I just am very picky about coffee tasting a certain way for me to enjoy drinking it. I have found with many experimentations that this particular mix works beautifully. I serve it to guests in a percolator and it goes over extremely well and they always want a second cup and I am asked what it is. either way, this is a great coffee and I have been drinking it for many years.

I am 75 years old and have been drinking coffee for 55 of those years. I learned to drink it black in the Navy and still prefer it that way today. I started drinking Peet's Major Dickason's Blend in 2001 and have enjoyed a couple of cups every morning since. Keep up the good work. We live on the California coast about 90 miles south of the Oregon border. I wish we had a coffee shop nearby so I could pop in and grab a latte once in a while.

  • cesar , drinking Peet's since n/a 3/27/16

Definitely the best coffee in the market, I have tried many others and no one has the full flavor without the bitter, and peet's does. I become a loyal suscription customer ever since.

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!
