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.

For a blend, this is as good as it gets.

Lacking in flavor of what I look for in a good dark roast coffee. More comparable to a light-medium roast.

OH MY GOODNESS! I'm so excited to find an extremely better replacement for Starbucks! As you know they closed their online store, so I have to travel to buy their espresso.
I decided to pick this up at Sam's Club. It has a beautifully smooth taste. It tastes and smells 100 times better than Starbucks! I'm so excited. Thank you!

I have to say this is the best cup of coffee I have ever made myself. My girlfriend wanted to get me a special coffee for Christmas this year so I asked my Uncle for recommendations since he does have great taste (he is also a former coffee shop owner in Pullman) and this is what he pointed me to. I will explain how I made it personally that I recommend highly if this is your preference -

For a small batch I used 3 cups of water brought to a boil in my old enamel coffee pot then removed from heat for the remainder. After 30 seconds I stirred in exactly one third of a cup of Major Dickason's grounds strait in then let it sit for 2 minutes, stirred again allowing it to sit for another 2 minutes. After that I add a little bit of cold water to settle the grounds and pour immediately into my cup.

The result was a silky smooth yet robust cup of coffee with a fantastic flavor (I would almost say a mild chocolate?) that truly left me impressed. I honestly cannot see myself buying anything else after this, if you haven't tried it I promise this is great. I also promised I was not paid to write or try this, I have never had this brand before today and I believe great products deserve great recognition so I wanted to contribute.

I love great coffee and like it brewed many ways: French press, cold brew, drip and espresso. What I love is that this blend is perfect no mater how you brew it. The French press is rich and flavorful and the crema in an espresso shot is the best I've used.... ever. This truly is the perfect cup of coffee.
