EMERYVILLE, Calif., U.S.— Peet’s Coffee previewed Peet’s Blended Coffee, a new line of four ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, at this year’s National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) trade show in Atlanta, Georgia. Chocolate Truffle, Caramel Dulce, Vanilla Crème, and Coffee & Cream are made with real cream, real sugar, and 100% single-origin Colombian coffee—delivering an upgraded coffee treat.
Peet’s Blended Coffee, slated to launch across convenience, grocery, mass and drug stores, will be available in California starting early January 2020 distributed by Keurig Dr Pepper.
The Pursuit of Better Coffee
Alfred Peet, the company’s founder, opened the first Peet’s storefront in 1966 in pursuit of better coffee and his rich, complex, superior quality roasts were unlike anything Americans ever tasted. Over its fifty-three-year history, Peet’s has remained focused on delivering the best coffee experience for consumers, whether that be handcrafted beverages in retail coffee bars or the freshest beans available nationally through grocery, mass, and club channels.
Peet’s approaches RTD with the same commitment it has for beans and is excited to take on this large segment of the coffee category in 2020 with its new Blended Coffee. The Peet’s legacy of quality coffee results in high brand loyalty with consumers eager to extend their consumption of premium coffee to new dayp arts with Peet’s RTD beverages.
“One of the top reasons consumers buy ready-to-drink coffee is for a creamy treat,” said Gretchen Koch, Senior Director of Marketing, Peet’s Coffee. “We know consumers are turning to this category for indulgence, but they are not fully satisfied with the options they have today. Our Blended Coffee offers consumers better indulgence with real cream, real sugar and premium, single-origin Colombian coffee, which ultimately provides an upgraded creamy coffee experience.”
