First crafted by Alfred Peet in the 1960s Peet's House Blend uses carefully selected beans from Latin America for a quality cup that's uniquely rich with pleasant spiciness and a crisp finish. Mr. Peet used to recommend it as a "starter coffee" to get customers acclimated before introducing them to new flavors. The bright balanced taste and medium body of Peet's Coffee House Blend Dark Roast make it an inviting introduction to Peet's signature style. Deep-roasted by hand in small batches to impart the most flavor and aroma House Blend is a perennial favorite of Peet's customers. Whole beans ensure you can enjoy the best flavor possible by grinding at home immediately before use.
