Coffee FAQs

Coffee FAQs

How is Peet’s different than other brands?
Peet’s buys only the highest quality beans available, deep-roasts them in small batches to order, and ships them fresh – within 24 hours – to all our retail stores and mail order customers. The company’s deep roasting technique produces a distinct coffee that is full, rich and complex.
What is deep-roasting?
Peet’s approach to coffee roasting is personal and high-touch. Highly skilled roasters use their expert knowledge to perfect each batch of beans, constantly watching over the process to ensure the highest quality and consistency. This deep-roasted artisan style allows the rich, bold flavors to be coaxed out of each individual bean – in contrast to the modern practice of computerized roasting used by other large coffee companies. Each day our roasters may taste and evaluate up to 100 samples of coffees to achieve peak flavor.
Do deep-roasted coffees contain more caffeine?
Fine coffees at any degree of roast contain roughly the same amount of caffeine (about 100 mg per 6 oz. cup). A single shot of espresso (1 oz.), while it may taste "stronger", contains less caffeine than a regular 6 oz. cup of coffee (only about 70 mg.) because of serving size.
What are the most important things to know about brewing coffee?
  1. Measure carefully (2 Tbsp. ground coffee per 6 oz. of water).
  2. Start with freshly drawn, filtered water and bring to a boil. Let rest for 30 seconds to reach optimal brewing temperature range of 195-205 degrees (F).
  3. Grind coffee just before brewing. Whole beans retain delicate aromatic qualities and flavors which begin to dissipate once ground.
  4. Brew only what you plan to drink, and drink it as soon as possible. Don't cook your coffee on a hot plate; put it in a thermos to keep it hot.
  5. When using a drip maker, stir your carafe of brewed coffee once all the liquid has passed through the filter. This helps to combine the layers of flavor.
What is the difference between an espresso / drip / press pot grind? What happens if I use the wrong grind?
This indicates the ideal grind coarseness for each brewing method. Espresso is the finest grind, drip is a moderately fine grind, and press pot is the coarsest. The finer the grind, the more of a coffee bean's surface area will be exposed to hot water, and the quicker flavor extraction will occur. Because different brewing methods require shorter or longer interactions between hot water and ground coffee, choosing the right grind is essential to crafting the perfect cup. (If a fine grind is used in a press pot your coffee will be over-extracted, and if a coarse grind is used for drip the hot water will not have enough time to extract the bean's full flavor.)
Why does Peet’s recommend press pot brewing?
A press pot (French press) is a direct infusion method that allows you to control all parts of the extraction including water temperature and time of steep. Since there is no paper filter, you get 100% of the coffee's flavor. For more detailed brewing directions, please see our coffee brewing section.
Why are my beans sometimes shiny (oily) and sometimes dry-looking?
The goal of the roasting process is to develop flavor in balance with body and acidity, and each bean requires different treatment to achieve this careful balance. A higher roast level tends to force natural oils to the bean's surface, while a lower-intensity roast allows most oils to remain just below the surface. Natural fat content and days from roast can also contribute to your beans looking shiny or dry. However, this is in no way an indicator of quality.
How does Peet’s ensure that its grocery coffee stays fresh?
Peet’s employs dedicated Direct Store Delivery (DSD) professionals to manage our grocery orders and ensure that each and every coffee stays fresh. We can proudly guarantee that no Peet’s coffee sold in grocery stores is older than 90 days.
Does Peet’s sell organic coffee?
Peet’s Gaia Organic Blend is certified organic by Quality Assurance International, the leading USDA accredited organic product certifying agency.
Does Peet’s have any lighter roasts?
Yes! Discover our medium roast coffees and experience the delightfully aromatic yet smooth and balanced taste in every cup. Our artisan roasters spent lots of time experimenting and refining their process to get just the right flavor profile for you to sip and savor.
What is the best way to store coffee at home?
One of the most frequently asked questions we get at Peet’s is about coffee storage. We recommend that you keep a week’s worth of coffee in an airtight, opaque container at room temperature to protect it against the staling effects of heat, light, and moisture. Whole beans will keep up to four weeks, but ground coffee should be brewed within two weeks. Check here for our favorite coffee storage products.
