How It Tastes

Exceptionally complex and full-bodied, revealing hints of chocolate and spice.


Peet's Roastmaster Emeritus Jim Reynolds has perhaps the most discerning palate in the entire specialty coffee industry. When we asked him to create a special blend of the most exquisite coffees imaginable, to his own exacting specifications, he selected these very rare lots known for both their consistency and complexity. This transcendent blend of full-bodied coffees we call JR Reserve is as tasteful and multi-faceted as the man himself. Pristine notes of spice and chocolate unveil themselves, layer by layer, until merging into a prolonged and satisfying finish.

Worth Noting

JR Reserve is only available in limited quantities — 1/2-lb. bags — and roasted to order just once a week, exclusively on Wednesdays. We do this to make sure it's as fresh as possible when you receive it. Orders must be placed on or before each Tuesday, and are shipped within 24 hours of roasting. You also have the option of choosing a future Wednesday shipment at checkout.

This coffee is superb. One of the best tasting coffees I've ever had. It's a little pricey, but this is a great treat to have from time to time.

Rich in spice while not being overwhelming to the point where you forget you're drinking coffee. A nice blend to savor if given the opportunity.

smooth, light , and delicate, a real ladies brew, not worth the $$, however since I blend coffees regularly I made several blends with this coffee and in particular with Peet's French Rst.and Peet's Guat. San Sebastian, in equal proportions and I found that this blend makes a near perfect coffee. rich dark and aromatic. super great.

one of the best coffees I have ever drank. Worth the price.

Beautiful coffee, smooth and well worth the price! GZ from Lon says it's not "FAIR" to charge that much? That made me laugh out loud. Fair? What does that even mean...what a RIDICULOUS thing to say. GZ it is about $1.25 to fill my coffee cup with this treat. Even on my tight budget, its a VERY reasonable way to start my day of right.
