About this coffee

Coffee story

In the words of Peet's Roastmaster Emeritus Jim Reynolds, "Coffee can be a powerful means of doing good." That sentiment is the soul of this blend, a unique combination of exquisite coffees from smallholder farmers throughout Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia.

Our partnership with the non-profit TechnoServe gives many of these farmers hands-on training to increase the yield and quality of their coffee crops so they can command more favorable prices. Over the years it’s been rewarding and inspiring to see many farmers, through their cooperatives, build schools, install power lines, and provide their communities access to affordable food, among other projects.

It was the farmers who gave this truly sustainable, distinctly African blend its name, Uzuri—which is Swahili for beautiful or excellent. We don't think there's any better way to describe coffee with such a flowery fragrance, smooth, malty-sweet flavors, and dark berry juiciness. Uzuri...beautiful.

We have been ordering from Peet's for 5 years now and for the longest time have been getting Espresso Forte and Arabian Moca-Java and blending them 50-50 for the most part. When the Arabian became unavailable we decided to try a couple different blends with Uzuri being one of them and immediately loved the taste. We tried mixing the different types but I found myself gravitating to just this blend by itself. The other morning I decided to do side-by side blind taste tests and made single shots of each and had my wife taste them and then had her do the same for me. We both picked the Uzuri! So I have changed our subscription to just pure Uzuri going forward based upon the amazing flavor that we both enjoy. I can't be certain but it seems the Arabian Moca-Java flavor wasn't as it was before the period of unavailability. Definitely sold on the Uzuri.

I have been drinking Peet's Coffee for about 4 years now. My favorite is Arabian Mocha Java. Recently I have not been able to buy my favorite coffee beans from Peet's. I bought Uzuri African Blend, Ethiopian Super Natural, and French Roast. Arabian Mocha Java is still my favorite. I am not a sophisticated coffee drinker. I can only say what tastes good to me. Uzuri and Ethiopian beans has similar aroma as Arabian Mocha Java (AMJ) beans, but AMJ coffee tastes and smells the best to me. The French Roast coffee is a little too bitter. Overall, coffee made from Uzuri and Ethiopian beans are close to AMJ, i.e., they are okay.

Been drinking Peet’s for many years and my go to favorite is Major Dickinson’s . Stopped at Peet’s In Baltimore and bought the Uzuri and glad I did. If you like Dickinson you should like the full bodied but not bitter Uzuri.
