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.

Dear Peet's,

I wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to write to you, and for your Solano blend. This coffee is so smooth and flavorful that it has become my favorite blend. Most of all, the aroma of the coffee strikes me with a certain sense of nostalgia. I grew up in Solano county and my father used to take me to the art museum in Berkeley. But before we went, we would always stop so he could get a cup of coffee. We would play chess while he finished it and I can still remember it's distinct smell. Sadly, since then he and I have become estranged. But whenever I drink this coffee it brings me back to a time when things were simple and there was only chess and coffee.

I love this coffee. I've been drinking Peet's for many years, when my brother would bring French Roast at Christmas, but the last few years I've been buying it myself online. I've run the route of favorites. My top favorite was a Special shipment of New Guinea Gold I managed to get a few pounds of a year or two ago. It's never come again. I've never liked any as much as that until I tried Cafe Solano. It has deep rich flavor, but not so heavy that it tastes muddy. I'm no coffee expert so it's hard to describe why I like it so much. Now I can quite wishing for another shipment of New Guinea Gold. This is a truly great cup of coffee.

This is my new favorite coffee; ever since I started measuring my coffee with tablespoons when brewing it. It's the best ever! It is my understanding that there is more caffeine in lighter roasts, which is how I discovered it.

A wonderful medium roast coffee! I have a Jura Capresso machine, which lets me experiment with varying strengths of coffee and espresso. This blend has a wonderful smooth flavor and perfect finish no matter what settings I use. And that is quite a feat. Most coffees only taste good at one strength setting, or only as an expresso versus brewing as a regular coffee. I recommend this blend to all my friends and family.

At last, a great Peets blend which is not over-roasted. I've been drinking Peets for many years, most recently Top Blend (until it was discontinued), then my own blend of Columbia and New Guinea Highlands, and finally, just straight Columbia. Yes, I know burnt beans are in vogue among Peets enthusiasts, but Cafe Solano has a coffee flavor you can taste without the distracting bitterness of over-roasted beans. Please keep this in stock because Cafe Solano is my blend of choice now.
