How It Tastes

Rich, smooth, and complex, with a very full body and multi-layered character.


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.

Worth Noting

Over the years, Major Dickason's 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 have been buying different coffees online and at stores looking for the very best (Black) coffee taste. Well I found them. My wife and I love Major Dickason's and Arabian Java Mocha. All the coffee always comes freshly Roasted. Honestly, why would I buy from anywhere else? Fresh to my door. Wow. People, theres nothing like Fresh Roasted Coffee. And the taste of these blended Coffees are the best we ever experienced. I hopefully will try others in the future. Will start the subscription service soon. It seems very flexible. And I gotta have my FRESH BLACK HOT PEETS in the MORNING. EVERY MORNING. THANK YOU PEETS.

This coffee is a love affair. I was introduced to Peet's back in 1998 by my English professor and I wondered why someone would like a bean so much they would have it shipped to them regularly. Now I know why!!!! My first concern when moving to Canada where I now live was if they sell Peet's here. Major D's blend is my old flame that I look for whenever I scan a store, a coffeebar, an online site...I'm always searching for that spark and if I do come across it I light up with the inspiration and magic of a first kiss and my heart is full. Thanks to Peet's I have a new lifelong obsession, friend, and old flame that ever burns brightly!!!!! Be prepared to take a journey if you try it....mine has lasted over twenty years and counting!

Incredibly smooth dark chocolate and mild spice. The most consistent and dependable coffee I've ever had.
