How It Tastes

Bright, balanced, and medium-bodied. Pleasant hint of spice with a crisp finish.


Ever since Alfred Peet opened the doors of his first small Berkeley shop in 1966, Peet's has been known as a pioneer of fine, distinctive coffees — high-grown, higher quality, and deeply roasted to maximize flavor. House Blend is a perfect introduction to our signature style. First crafted by Mr. Peet, this blend of carefully selected, choice beans from our favorite Latin American origins brews a quality cup that's uniquely rich and approachable, with a pleasant spiciness. It's deep-roasted by hand in small batches to impart the most flavor and aroma. And like all our coffees, each roast is delivered unimaginably fresh.

Worth Noting

The bright, balanced flavors and medium body make House Blend so inviting and easy to love, Mr. Peet used to call it a "starter coffee." He would recommend it to get customers acclimated before introducing them to a range of flavors. But we think he may have underestimated himself; more than four decades later, Peetniks everywhere are still at home with House.

This is my first and last Peet's coffee.
I started in the 1988's going to the coffee shop on Walnut and Vine.
It's still my favorite.
I have tried many other Peet's coffee but come back to the House

House Blend makes really great espresso. I used to use mainly Garuda for lattes but House is just as good or better for this for my taste, although a tad lighter. Also less $. Probably my best ever lattes have been with House blend using a Bezerra BZ10.

My wife and I got started on Peet's coffee about 7 years ago with Major Dickasons for espresso and house blend for drip brewing. Get 2 pounds of house blend beans delivered every 2 weeks which is the most fresh way to buy, arrives within 2 days of roasting, then store beans in a vacuum canister and bur grind each morning. Brew in Technivorm Moccamaster brewer with thermal carafe. Best cup of drip coffee every day. Subscribing is the way to go, never run out. Thank you Peet's.

Peets coffees are all roasted to perfection! I've tried just about everything in their store. I was a Major D's fan, then switched to Peets medium roasts, also ordered the Kona, JR Reserve, the Red Harrar (not sure of the spelling), a couple of the deep roasts...all of them. Up until this morning I had never tried the House Blend! I bought it yesterday, whole bean, at Target. WOW!!! It's not too dark, it's not too's just right. I LOVE it! It's smooth, great tasting and looks like it's time to put another pot on!! Highly recommended ... and....the price is right. From now on, this is one of my "go to" coffees from Peets!
