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 our newest blend, a unique combination of coffees from Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia that supports the small-scale farmers of East Africa.

Long before we started buying their beans, our partnership with the non-profit Technoserve was giving these farmers hands-on training to grow higher quality coffee that commanded more favorable prices. They already had the terroir; our assistance helped them cultivate the techniques to produce coffee of Peet's caliber. With top-grade beans to sell, their incomes are rising, improving their lives as well as their communities.

They also gave this fully 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 undercurrents. Especially when it's also a powerful means of doing good. Uzuri...beautiful.

Bright, slightly acidic. Grows on you. I make half-caff with decaf Sumatra

This is simply a very nice cup of coffee. Good as a French Press, solid as an Americano, smooth as straight espresso

When I realized that my grocery store didn't have Uzuri African Blend for a week, I came to these pages to find some. That's how much I missed it. It brews into as good a cup of coffee one can find anywhere, from Beijing to Vienna!

We really enjoyed the 2014 Holiday Blend, and Kathy in Customer Service suggested Uzuri African as something close that we could enjoy all year. She was certainly right about that! It has now replaced Colombia as our favorite.

We love this coffee and when we see it on the shelves we buy all the stock because we don't know if it will be restocked. Now that I Know we can order online I might not be so greedy at the stores as they generally don't put more than 4 to 6 12oz bags up.

My family is IN the coffee business and I have a pretty good idea of what I like and what to look for and I will say that Uzuri is one of my favs.
I like a full bodied coffee with a smooth finish. This makes a cup from beginning to end that really makes the effort to make it worthwhile.
I have been a Peet's fan a long time and wear their shirt and make the family squeal but when you find a winner you gotta flaunt it. :)

With the buzz of the introduction of this blend both in store and on the web, this blend did not disappoint. The in-store tasting and the consequent in-home brewing with french press method (press pot), yielded a smooth, yet lively, very light citrus beginning with a berry finish. I found myself making that second cup rather quickly! The taste lingers very lightly in the mouth. I truly believe this coffee will be a hit and suit a wide range of coffee lovers tastes.

I was first draw to this coffee through the stories told by the growers, but I was quickly enchanted by this coffees velvety flavor! While I found this coffee to have some classic African charicteristis (a dark berry undertone) I was surprised by it rich complexity. As a fan of Indo-Pacifics, as well as multi region blends like Major Dickason''s I was delighted by this African coffee
