About this coffee


Coffee Story

Our hometown of Berkeley is known for its worldly culture, which inspired the global character of this medium-roast blend. Named for our beloved bustling café on Solano Avenue, where Peet's regulars of all backgrounds have been coming since 1990 for their morning ritual of coffee and conversation, it's a perfectly balanced blend of African, American, and Pacific coffees.

These devoted Peetniks expect the world from us, and the aromatic, lively, and very well rounded Cafe Solano — evincing a subtle complexity of fruit and floral notes — was created with their high standards and sophisticated tastes in mind.

Very smooth and dreamy. Consistent, creamy and rich. Never elts me down.

Cannot find in my Publix store in Gainesville, FL. Solano is the only coffee I want to drink! Please bring it back.

If you like coffee, you'll love this. If you don't like coffee, it might change your mind.

Cafe Solano is the very best tasting Peet's coffee bar none according to my taste buds, and it is as good or better than any other coffee I've ever had the pleasure to sample anywhere. It is therefore distressing that it has become unavailable in commercial outlets/grocery stores in recent history. Bring back Cafe Solano to the masses! Please! Some of the brands that do remain available such as Cafe Domingo, House Blend, Colombia Luminosa, Sumatra, and Major Dickason's blend can't hold a candle to Cafe Solano.

My family and I really enjoy Cafe Solano in the mornings. It is really smooth so it is not acidity and not bitter, balanced and rich. It's taste quickly fades in the palate. If you want a heavy full bodied coffee like Sumatra don't get this coffee, but, if you want a medium rich coffee without the heaviness then get this coffee. This Solano makes for a superb cup of coffee. YUMMY!

Many years ago, America embarked down a road paved with total confusion about coffee. Our intentions were good- stop drinking the mass produced brown water coffees that came in vacuum packed 1- and 3-lb cans in the supermarket. Americans discovered this beverage called "espresso".
Americans found espresso to be very dark in color and concentrated, so they assumed that the coffee beans used to produce it must be very darkly roasted. Thus, the dark, confused era in American coffee began, fueled by beans roasted until they became little oil coated charcoal briquettes, and is unfortunately still alive and well in most areas. People equate oil soaked, burned coffee with quality, which in reality is the exact opposite. Espresso made from these charcoal beans leaves your mouth tasting like it's filled with ashes for hours, but nobody here notices- almost all espresso consumed in America is diluted 90/10 with hot milk.
Those of us who drink espresso understand as Ernesto Illy did, that coffees roasted until just before they release their oils, with a dark brown, not black color, yield the most varietal flavor and most pleasant aftertaste. You taste coffee, not coal.
Kudos to Peets for finally offering something to us espresso drinkers other than charcoal after all these years. This is not a fad, this is America finally catching up and learning about coffee. Cafe Solano is properly roasted coffee, for drip and especially espresso. Nice even blend of flavors. Chocolaty, complex, a little sweet. Throws an insane crema if you get it fresh.
