Peet’s maintains a strict standard of freshness by hand-roasting every batch “to order” in its roasting facility in California (which is a LEED Gold certified facility).In Peet’s shops, coffee is served within 30 minutes of brewing to ensure freshness.There’s even a name for Peet lovers: they’re called “Peetniks.” For those of us who have never had Peet’s you may be wondering how it stacks up to Starbucks.Allow us to highlight a few key differences: Founding Starbuck’s was founded in 1971 in Seattle. If you really dig into the history books, you’ll find that the three Starbucks founders – Jerry Baldwin, Zev Siegl, and Gordon Bowker – learned how to roast coffee beans from none other than Alfred Peet, the founder of Peet’s Coffee.When you need a break and a caffeine buzz, Peet’s Coffee & Tea provides an escape in the heart of campus with inviting seating and big windows.The location just inside the first floor doors makes it easy to grab a quick cold brew or linger over a latte.
I moved to Berkeley in 1972 and discovered Peet's on Walnut Square and fell in love with the coffee. My first cup of Peet's was in 1978, while I was an undergraduate at U. I have been drinking Peet's ever since, even having some ground Sumatra sent to me to use in a French Press coffee maker while serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand. I had no idea, that the smell of coffee beans would be so overwhelming. Thanks for the great coffee, cheers I had my first cup of Peet's coffee with my Grandmother in Napa, CA, sometime around 2009.

She loved Peet's and would make a weekly run to North Berkeley to buy her Kona and later on Mocha Java. I was a lifer of thou shall not be named, 2-3x's a day 8years ago. That store, by the way, is now a Peet's coffee museum. My first Peet's was quite the eye opening experience. Thanks to Peet's, I now know there are very different qualities of coffee. While the coffee is exceptional, I would like to acknowledge the employees who work at the Davis E Street location.
I remember sitting at the bar with her and my first delicious cappuccinos and lattes. I treasure the time we had together, just the two of us. My husband drank Peets, I was oh no I don't drink PEETS, very defiant. I came to the USA in 1966--in Palo Alto(CA) actually. It is rare to see a group of employees who are so skilled and genuine in regards to the quality of customer service they provide.
