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.

After being a Pike's Peak fan for years I tried this and never looked back.

This was how my husband and I were introduced to "what are the Peet's Coffee store" in our (many over the years) trips to to southern and northern CA (San Jose, Los Altos and SanFrancisco) by my two sisters and my husband's cousin. We discovered Major Dickason's Blend - we originally referred to this as a 'nuclear roast' as being from the midwest, this was very different & rich! That was in the 1980's.. We still love it, enjoy it, at least able to obtain at our larger grocery marts in Grand Rapids MI. BUT we MISS the romance and experience of an in store Peet's Coffee shop. Maybe one day??? here in MI or Grand Rapids,MI would be awesome!
Thanks - Karen S.
