Who We Are

Peet’s is the original craft coffee company.  Founded in 1966 by Dutch immigrant Alfred Peet, the company remains true to its roots in the Pursuit of Better Coffee.  Sourcing only the best, highest quality beans, carefully roasting in small batches, packaging, and delivering direct to more than 15,000 stores and partners to ensure freshness, and perfecting the craft of drink making in our 250+ coffee bars, we continuously build on our deep expertise and heritage to deliver great coffee. Now, in the midst of an exciting period of growth, Peet’s is focused on sharing our passion – in offices, on campus, in grocery or specialty stores - anywhere coffee lovers live, work, or play.
