ABOUT PEET'S COFFEE
Peet's Coffee is a U.S. specialty coffee company founded by Alfred Peet in 1966 in Berkeley, CA. Mr. Peet grew up in the coffee trade and moved to America from Holland after World War II. Mr. Peet’s coffee style was unlike anything Americans had ever tasted before - small batches, fresh beans and a superior quality roast that is rich and complex. By 1969, Peet's Coffee in Berkeley became a gathering place for coffee devotees (known as ‘Peetniks’) and other artisan food crafters, and the area soon became known as 'The Gourmet Ghetto.' Alfred Peet's influence of the artisan coffee movement inspired a new generation of coffee entrepreneurs, including the founders of Starbucks. Today, Peet’s Coffee upholds its commitment to high quality and freshness by sourcing the world’s best beans, roasting in small batches, and maintaining a strict standard of freshness through its unique direct store delivery network. Peet's continues to grow its business through its retail, grocery and e-commerce channels while maintaining the premium quality of its coffee. Peet’s is a private business owned by JAB Holding Co.
