About this coffee


Coffee Story

In the words of Peet's Roastmaster Emeritus Jim Reynolds, "Coffee can be a powerful means of doing good." That sentiment is the soul of our newest blend, a unique combination of coffees from Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia that supports the small-scale farmers of East Africa.

Long before we started buying their beans, our partnership with the non-profit Technoserve was giving these farmers hands-on training to grow higher quality coffee that commanded more favorable prices. They already had the terroir; our assistance helped them cultivate the techniques to produce coffee of Peet's caliber. With top-grade beans to sell, their incomes are rising, improving their lives as well as their communities.

They also gave this fully sustainable, distinctly African blend its name, Uzuri — which is Swahili for beautiful or excellent. We don't think there's any better way to describe coffee with such a flowery fragrance, smooth, malty-sweet flavors, and dark berry undercurrents. Especially when it's also a powerful means of doing good. Uzuri...beautiful.

Just tried this today. No big surprise that I LOVE it, since I love your Kenya & your Tanzania is amazing. I can hardly wait for the weekend, when I have time to make some pour over with it. The Tanzania Peaberry, by the way, made some of the best pour over I have ever tasted. And, like the Kenya, it was also great iced. I am sure that this will work well over ice also. Thanks & keep up the good work!

Received this as a Christmas gift from my son,with this specific coffee included. This coffee has the smoothest finish! It has a mild yet rich flavor! I am a huge fan of Peets, and now more so than ever!

Bright, slightly acidic. Grows on you. I make half-caff with decaf Sumatra

This is simply a very nice cup of coffee. Good as a French Press, solid as an Americano, smooth as straight espresso

When I realized that my grocery store didn't have Uzuri African Blend for a week, I came to these pages to find some. That's how much I missed it. It brews into as good a cup of coffee one can find anywhere, from Beijing to Vienna!

We really enjoyed the 2014 Holiday Blend, and Kathy in Customer Service suggested Uzuri African as something close that we could enjoy all year. She was certainly right about that! It has now replaced Colombia as our favorite.
