EMERYVILLE, Calif., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Peet's Coffee®, The Original Craft Coffee™, announced its 2017 fall lineup influenced by the many rich tastes of the season. The handcrafted offerings include the debut of Vine & Walnut Blend and the Turkey Sage Sausage and Sweet Potato Biscuit, as well as the arrival of seasonal essentials like Pumpkin Latte and Pumpkin Chai Latte.
Over Fifty Years of Coffee First
Peet's invites coffeebar guests to put Coffee First™ with its limited-edition, medium roast, Vine & Walnut Blend in honor of the very first Peet's coffeebar established in Berkeley, California in 1966 on the corner of Vine & Walnut Streets. The blend brings together exquisite coffees from Bali, Zambia, and Sulawesi to create a flavor profile of subtly sweet, smooth molasses warmed by orange zest and nutmeg.
Available now through 10/31/2017 and while supplies last, coffee connoisseurs can purchase the blend at participating Peet's coffeebars, as well as at www.peets.com, for $18.95 USD per pound.
To celebrate Vine & Walnut Blend, Peet's is thrilled to offer a Limited-Edition Fall Flight package exclusive to participating Peet's coffeebars. The flight features half a pound of the following bestselling medium roasts, including Café Domingo and Big Bang with the new Vine & Walnut. While supplies last, they are priced at $24.95 USD for one or two for $45.00 USD.
Peet's Coffee: Welcome the Fall Season
The following 2017 fall beverages, all handcrafted and hand pulled, are available across Peet's coffeebars from 8/30/2017 to 10/31/2017:
- Pumpkin Latte ($3.80 - $5.10 USD): an expert mix of hand-pulled espresso, pumpkin and freshly steamed milk, topped with a light dusting of fragrant spices.
- Pumpkin Chai ($3.95 - $5.25 USD): infused with Mighty Leaf Tea® Masala Chai, pumpkin, and light spices to create an aromatic cup.
Peet's is also proud to announce the permanent addition to its menu of coconut milk, which follows on the success of the whipped coconut cream topper that the craft company launched in 2016.
"There is no flavor that evokes the feeling of autumn quite as effectively as pumpkin, and we're pleased to present this classic fall flavor in a new way to our customers by offering an entirely non-dairy beverage by preparing these and other favorites with coconut milk and optionally topping them with our premium whipped coconut cream," said Patrick Main, Senior R&D Manager, Peet's Coffee.
Seasonal Baked Good in the Spirit of Fall
As part of the fall menu, Peet's will expand its warm breakfast offerings with the Turkey Sage Sausage and Sweet Potato Biscuit—mouthwatering sweet potato paired with a sage-seasoned turkey patty topped with creamy fontina cheese. Priced at $4.95 USD, the biscuit is available from 9/1/2017 to 1/11/2017.
"Our Turkey Sage Sausage and Sweet Potato Biscuit, with its simple, flavorful ingredients, is at the heart of what Peet's Coffee values most," said Beth Hammond, Director of Food, Peet's Coffee.
