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 am a complete coffee fanatic, and grew up in WA, where coffee was always a big part of life :) I have been drinking all sorts of coffee since I was 16, I'm now almost 40, and I FINALLY found a home-brewable coffee I am crazy in love with. Major Dickason is the only one for me :)

Quick description: Full-bodied, yes, with chocolatey-awesome undertones (though there's no chocolate added as far as I know). A nice deep dark coffee that retains an incredible smoothness.

I've tried many coffees and this is by far the best from any coffee company. Espresso with this blend is wonderful. It's never bitter, always smooth and full of flavor.

Wasted a lot of time drinking mediocre coffee until 2012 when I decided to try Major Dickason's Blend( whole beans). Ground and French Pressed, I challenge anyone in the coffee audience or coffee business to tell me what has better deep saisfying rich flavor of coffee than this! Starbuck's has nothing that compares!!!

I like to try different brands of coffee and this past weekend I came across this blend on the shelf. Long story short,,,I love it! full bodied flavor without the acidic stomach after taste. Perfectection from Peets

I just purchased a bag of Dickason's blend and I'm amazed at how accurate the description concerning Body and Liveliness has turned out to be. I use both more beans at a finer grind than is standard. This help me get the rich, full body that I require. However, what is best about this particular roast is that it doesn't turn highly acidic as some other dark roasts(i.e.French, Espresso) and remains balanced.
So bravo to Peets for not only developing a roast that is the best chain-store drip-coffee, but makes one of the best cups I've ever made at home.

When I first moved to Berkeley in 1980, I discovered that I was fortunate enough to live a block away from the original Peet's on the corner of Vine and Walnut Sts. My morning ritual was rapidly established: Grab my mug, get the paper and follow the nose towards the freshly roasting aroma that wafted through the air to get to that tasty, dark and rich deliciousness offered by good friends.

Having tried many a coffee and various blends from around the world, I always tend to gravitate back to my all time favorite: Major Dickason's. Do not make a change to this masterpiece...

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!
