How It Tastes

Brilliant blend with natural Ethiopia roasted to bright, sweet, medium-bodied perfection


Some have described Alfred Peet as the “big bang”* of craft coffee—the one who started it all. When he set up shop in Berkeley back in 1966, he transformed America’s expectations of the depth, body and flavor in our cups. And that pursuit of greatness has never stopped. In celebration of our 50th year, we honored his legacy by taking a bold step ahead. Like Mr. Peet’s pioneering dark roasts, our new signature blend expands the horizon of what coffee can be: vibrant, full-flavored, boldly original, and roasted to medium-bodied perfection. It’s the perfect coffee to honor the man who still inspires us every day.

Worth Noting

If you love Major Dickason’s one-of-a-kind taste, you’ll find a kindred spirit in Big BangTM. This blend is crafted from some of the same premium coffees, as Major Dickason’s, but with a twist, thanks to the heavenly, aromatic citrus of Ethiopian Super Natural.

I had previously gave a bad review for Big Bang cuz from French Press I didn't get the aroma/flavor I liked. But then I tried cold brewing it and it was really delicious. Full bodied, fragrant, more complexed. So I like it now.

Did a French Press and a cold brew to try Big Bang out. Drinking the FP gave no noticeable aroma, medium body, average coffee in every aspect. Cold Brew gave a richer body. Pros are that it's not strong in bitterness nor acidity, which I don't like. As far as impressive complexity or other notes, I couldn't tell.

Good, I like it.

I love this blend. I grind it up and use it primarily for espresso in the morning, which turns out great every time.

We love this non bitter, low acidic coffee. We discovered Big Bang and became addicted after trying at least 12 other flavors and brands. If you don’t experience the same flavor then check your coffee maker. We use a percolator and a conical grinder and love it. We wish we could buy more than a pound at a time and get a discount but no dice.
