Peet’s Coffee Major Dickason’s Blend, Dark Roast, Ground Coffee; A loyal customer of our original Berkeley store, retired army sergeant 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. Over the years, it has become the coffee that epitomizes Peet’s: flavorful, deeply roasted, and unsurpassingly satisfying. But for us, “Major D” 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.
