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 tried a couple bags of whole bean Major Dickason's Blend from Target, and they were phenomenal. So I ordered a couple directly from Peet's thinking it would be fresher and even better, but noooo.
Both of these (roasted on 8/10/16) taste bitter and burnt instead of rich, smooth and mellow. Highly disappointed.

The WORST coffe I've ever had. NOT! Insane flavor, supreme depth. Can't stop drinking it. Will not drink anything else.

Although I love the Epresso Forte, "The Major" ranks as my all time favorite .. I purchase the whole beans and grind them at home for my morning cappuccino .. Every morning ! If I just want a cup of coffee, I reach for The Major again .. The flavor just says Peet's to me !!

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.

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!
