RIP: The Godfather of Good Coffee – Alfred Peet

CoffeeIf you have the fortune to be near a Peet’s Coffee, celebrate the passing of Alfred Peet with a cup of Joe.

When I went to college at Berkeley, I first got hooked on lattes, then cappucinos, then I graduated to drip coffee. The coffee at the flagship Peet’s store on Vine and Walnut in Berkeley made killer coffee.

I don’t mean killer good. I mean it was thick, and dark, and nearly seared a hole in your stomach. It was the hard stuff. But it was good.

Today I am a confirmed coffee addict, aficionado, and everything in between – largely thanks to the legacy begun by Alfred Peet.
