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 this blend, a unique combination of exquisite coffees from smallholder farmers throughout Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.

Our partnership with the non-profit TechnoServe gives many of these farmers hands-on training to increase the yield and quality of their coffee crops so they can command more favorable prices. Over the years it’s been rewarding and inspiring to see many farmers, through their cooperatives, build schools, install power lines, and provide their communities access to affordable food, among other projects.

It was the farmers who gave this truly 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 juiciness. Uzuri...beautiful.

This coffee is full bodied and delicious. Peet's has a great selection of coffee. I used to get this all the time in the supermarket but they stopped carrying it. I may settle on one coffee down the road but right now I'm enjoying trying them all. I only wished they came in 1/2 pounds so I don't have to store so many at once.

I've been a Peet's addict since 1999. I usually order Major Dickason's Blend or Espresso Forte. This time I decided to try Uzuri African. I'm so glad I did!

This is a very well balanced coffee, with mild acidity and marked berry notes with a very light floral hint. Makes and excellent espresso that is smooth with no bitterness. It also makes and extremely satisfying brew from a Moka pot, with steamed milk.

I was addicted to this year's anniversary blend. When there was no more I called and was told I would love this. And I love it. I'm ordering tons!!!

I was hoping to buy African Uzuri in bulk as it is the most satisfying coffee I've had. Can't seem to find it online cheaper than at retailers. It is anywhere from 5-7 dollars more than at my local supermarket.

I was a Blend 101 drinker for 40 years and devastated when they discontinued it. On the verge of tears, I threw myself upon the mercy of the baristas at your new New York location and they recommended Uzuri African. Not expecting much (I have always preferred South American coffees, for whatever reason) I gave it a try.

It is truly amazing coffee. I drink it at home, I drink it at work. Even while reading the morning paper with all the mayhem in the world today, when I drink Uzuri, I'm happy.

It's fine with me if they discontinue it in 40 years, I'll be dead by then. But in the meantime, this is my coffee for life.
