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.

Brewing Tips

Brew it in a French press for a perfect cup, or enjoy it as an exquisite espresso.

Once you start, you can never go back. If I don't have my MD Blend in the AM, I'm miserable. Every time I take my first sip in the AM, the next word out of my mouth is "AAAAAHHHHH"... Just ordered 4 bags!

Gotta add my review. As much as I love Peet's coffee, there's something about this blend that I just don't care for, even after 28+ years of drinking Peet's coffee. It's like there's an aftertaste that just sticks around.

I first had Peet's coffee at the Berkely store, on Vine, on a summer break from college and quickly got hooked. Arabian Mocha Java is my preferred blend, as well as most of the African and Indo-Pacific blends and varietals (I'm not much into Central American coffees).

Wish I could give the Major better marks, but, if you're like me and just can't drink it, you're not alone.

I just discovered my new favorite thing...Major D's. Amazing that I found it quite by accident and by just the name alone, figured to be something special. Nicely done

Have tried to like this coffee but just can't stand it. African Azuri so far is my favorite, and can't buy the beans locally.

I have been drinking this for over a year and a half and I am still in love with this coffee.

I loved it so much that I even wrote a review about it at


If you are reading through the reviews to find out if this is worth the purchase or not, then maybe you will find my review extremely helpful.
