“Better than Starbuck's”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

They have good tasting coffee, not burned tasting like Starbuck's. They also offer tea selections that I really like.

“An SF import in Seattle”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

Peet's is San Francisco's favorite coffee place. As a transplant to Seattle, I was sooo glad to come across it -- it was like finding an old friend.

When Peet's is at its best, it's as good as anything on the top tier of Seattle's legendary coffee scene (with the possible exception of the utterly marvelous Fonte). But buyer beware: some of the Seattle stores are owned by franchisees, which don't have the same quality control you find at the shops owned and operated directly by Peet's. I've gotten burned coffee at a couple of franchise shops. If this happens, complain.

With that caveat, though, prepare for a treat. And get some of the Major Dickason's blend for your drip machine at home.

“My husband's favorite!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

I liked the coffee very well but the kind he bought for our use at home was very strong. Be sure to sample several kinds.

“Of the big box coffee roasters, nothing compares to Peet's quality, especially the drip coffee.”
