Peet's Coffee & Tea announces launch of Peet's Single Cups for owners of single-serve coffee machines, available in five varieties

EMERYVILLE, California , June 5, 2013 (press release) – Made with the Same Quality, Artisan-Roasted Coffee that People Expect from Peet’s

Peet’s Coffee & Tea today announced the launch of Peet’s Single Cups. Made with the exact same high-quality, hand-roasted coffee for which Peet’s is known, Single Cups enters the market with five distinct varieties for owners of single-serve machines. Single Cups is now available at Peet’s retail stores, major national grocery chains, as well as online at www.peets.com.

“We’re excited to bring our customers a single-serve cup of coffee that we are proud to call Peet’s,” said David Burwick, president and CEO of Peet’s Coffee & Tea. “We know a significant number of Peet’s fans use single-serve machines and have been eager for a single cup from us for quite some time now. After five years and nearly 2,000 tries, we believe Peet’s Single Cups is setting a new bar for the category.”

Peet’s uses the same beans and hand-roasted process for Single Cups that customers expect and appreciate from a cup of Peet’s. Each Single Cups variety was designed with a specific dose of coffee per cup and a distinct grind parameter, measured to the micron, to highlight the taste profile of the blend. Instead of the standard paper filter that traps flavor, Peet’s uses the RealCup™ patented mesh-like filter that allows essential coffee oils and flavors into the cup, producing a cup that meets Peet’s exacting standards.

Peet’s Single Cups is available for use in K-Cup® compatible single-serve machines.* The five varieties include, Major Dickason’s Blend®, French Roast, Café Domingo®, House Blend and Decaf House Blend, with other offerings planned for the future.
