How It Tastes

All the rich complexity and body of the original. A surprisingly bold decaf.

History

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. The mellow, satisfying richness stands alone among decafs, whether prepared in a press, by drip, or as espresso. It's the boldest of its kind. 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.

Worth Noting

For a decaf version of the best-loved Peet's coffee to earn the Major Dickason's name, we felt it had to brew the absolute finest decaf cup in the world. So we used the exact same premium beans as the original to create a blend just as full of flavor, body, and aroma, but without any caffeine. We think Major D would be proud.

This decaf is superior. I have tried decaf from SO many companies and nothing beats Peets. As a recovering open heart surgery patient I can't have any caffeine (grrrrrr, I love coffee!) With Peets you don't have to sacrifice amazing flavor and this blend has it! But after years of no caffeine I can tell there is some residual in this coffee, just a touch.

BEST coffee ever. Strong and bold yet not bitter. LOVE! I miss this daily cup in El Cerrito, CA, so have it shipped to Tennessee.

I was always on the lookout for the best decaf. They are hard to find. They are generally stale, bland, or just downright awful. However, for the past year I have loved every sip of Peet’s Major Dickinson’s Decaf! Thank you for restoring my joy of coffee! I serve it weekly to friends and family who think they are drinking caffeinated! It is so good they don’t even know! Shhhh!

I stopped buying at SBucks a few weeks ago. Its hard to find decent decaf. The major has it all. Full bodied and smoky rich.

Hands down the best decaf I've ever had! I've had it iced in the store, but I usually make espresso at home with it. It's too complex for me to pull apart specific flavor notes, but the bitter flavors of the dark roasting are balanced well with the acidity and subtle sweetness.
