Peet’s Coffee Heralds The Holiday Season With Limited-Time Flavors

Peet's Coffee Holiday Blend Bundle

Peet’s Coffee has unveiled its 2018 holiday offerings, featuring the new Etoile single-origin, annual Holiday Blend, beverage newcomer Dark Chocolate Orange Mocha, returning favorites and a selection of premium gifts.

The Peet’s Coffee 2018 Holiday Blend is spiced with notes of citrus and Mayan chocolate.

“Stout bodied, deeply roasted and joyously flavorful, our Holiday Blend is the most ardently awaited coffee of the year,” said Doug Welsh, roastmaster and VP of Coffee, Peet’s Coffee. “This year we selected southern Ethiopian coffee for its citrusy perfume, the sublimely syrupy and tobacco-spiced Sumatra of the Batak region, and the Mayan chocolate delights of Guatemala from the small farms of San Martín Jilotepeque.”

Available now until Jan. 8, 2019, and while supplies last, the annual Holiday Blend can be purchased at participating Peet’s coffeebar locations and online at, as well as grocery stores nationwide. Prices vary by channel.

The 2018 Etoile is a unique single-origin light roast, also offered only for the holiday season. Sourced from Jimma in Ethiopia, the coffee features full flavor notes of citrus and spice. At $18 per pound, Etoile is only available at participating Peet’s coffeebar locations while supplies last through Jan. 8.

The Peet’s coffeebar lineup will include one new beverage alongside returning seasonal favorites that are available, while supplies last, through Jan. 8:

Dark Chocolate Orange Mocha ($4.75-$6.05): Hand-pulled espresso and freshly steamed milk blended with chocolate, unsweetened Dutch cocoa and sweet citrus topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa.

“The flavors and ingredients that cue joyfully nostalgic memories are at the core of our 2018 holiday handcrafted beverages,” said Patrick Main, senior R&D manager, Peet’s Coffee. “We all know that feeling of a scent or taste that immediately transports us to a special time or place. And we hope our fans enjoy our take on the indulgent and comforting trimmings of the season.”
