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.

I've been drinking MD since 2011 delivered fresh every month. Nothing compares to this coffee. Over the years I venture out and try other brands. I have not found another coffee that is an incredible as this blend.

I would buy the ground major dickason dark roast if you could sell it at Costco and/or Sam's. It's Fabulous coffee.

Use it for espresso. Love it! Much better than traditional espresso roast. Very complex and flavorful.

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