“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.
