Our most famous blend. Combines the best coffees from the world's premier coffee-growing regions. Very full-bodied, complex, rich, and smooth.
A coffee born of friendship, this full-bodied, complex blend was the combined effort of Key Dickason, a retired army officer and a regular at our original Berkeley store, and Alfred Peet, our founder. Together they sampled combinations of coffees until they arrived at what is now one of our most popular blends. Of course we named it after our friend - and promoted him to Major in the process.
This is the coffee that many of our customers identify with Peet's. Over the years it has gained a reputation among coffee lovers for its satisfying, rich and mellow (some say comforting) flavor qualities. The blend's components contribute their regional characteristics but are balanced to make a well-rounded cup that is complex yet smooth. We always use the best coffees from each origin for this premier blend, so the customers who order "a pound of Major" won't be disappointed. It produces a first-rate cup in a French press, not to mention an exquisite espresso.
