The Original Craft Coffee Brand Delivers the Year’s Best Beans with Annual Holiday Blend and
Heralds Festive Handcrafted Beverages of Citrus and Spice
Peet’s Coffee®, The Original Craft Coffee®, announces the return of its annual Holiday Blend coffee, as well as its 2019 seasonal beverage lineup inspired by citrus and festive mulling spices. The handcrafted offerings include the debut of Citrus and Spice Latte and the return of the popular Dark Chocolate Orange Mocha, Holiday Spice Latte, and Peppermint Mocha.
Holiday Blend: The Year’s Best Beans
Peet’s celebrates each holiday season with a remarkable one-of-a-kind blend inspired by the most extraordinary beans sampled at the craft roaster’s tasting table. The 2019 Holiday Blend brings together coffees from Kenya, Sumatra, and Panama for a stout and spicy dark roast with festive fruity notes.
“This big hearty blend takes months to complete because we create it from scratch and only from the year’s most spectacular beans,” said Doug Welsh, Roastmaster, Peet’s Coffee. “This year, the superb, silky and cassis-rippled Kenya also brings brown sugar and blackberry tones to complement Panama’s sweet Meyer lemon top notes and Sumatra’s syrupy depths. We are honored that our holiday blend has become so beloved, so eagerly anticipated, and so prodigiously consumed and are excited for fans to savor this celebratory cup.”
As part of the brand’s mission to support the neighborhoods it serves, Peet’s will commit to donating $2.00 USD to No Kid Hungry for every pound of Holiday Blend sold in coffeebars and on Peets.com (up to $30,000 USD) during Giving Week (12/1/2019 to 12/7/19) in support of the campaign’s goal of ending childhood hunger in the United States.
