Peet’s Coffee – Uzuri African Blend Giveaway with 5 Winners!

No secret here, I’m in love with coffee.  For me, nothing makes a busier morning easier to face than rolling out of bed thinking, “Oh good, there’s coffee.”  Lately I’ve been waking up to the newest brew at Peet’s Coffee, Uzuri African Blend, which is available for purchase starting today, March 3rd.  Having been a longtime fan of African coffees, I’ve found this blend to be another fine java to add to the list.  The beans are dark and oily, just how I like then, and the flavor is bold without the bitter, perfect for those who enjoy coffee that doesn’t bite back.  And in a cappuccino, it shows itself off nicely.

But Peet’s has more going for them than just fresh roasted beans and quality coffee.  They’re all about fair trade.  You see, in East Africa, coffee’s birthplace, most coffee farmers earn less than $2 a day!  But Peet’s pays fair wages and collaborates with a nonprofit organization called TechnoServe, which not only assures fair wages and treatment of the farmers, but also provides them with training, giving them a better quality of life.

If your enticed to try Peet’s Uzuri African Blend, how about this?  Peet’s Coffee is giving away 12-ounce bags ($13.95 each) of their freshly roasted beans to FIVE dkM readers!

  1. Today I’m going to pick the Guatemala San Sebastian. I can’t resist the description: “Aromatic yet powerful, reminiscent of fine bittersweet chocolate”–doesn’t that sound wonderful?

  2. Pure Arabica beans, picked and roasted in small batches. Mmmm…
    Coincidentally, I just tried African coffee for the first time today and am extremely impressed. It is very, very good. South America gets a lot of publicity, and it’s good, but I wasn’t really even aware Africa was such a large producer of quality coffee.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. The Pride of the Port tea sounds like a nice strong tea to get you going when you don’t want coffee.

  6. I’m in a mood for tea today and the Masala Chai Teabags look wonderful. Or maybe the Yin Hao Jasmine. Tough choice!

  7. I learned that a truly quality-conscious grower may send pickers out to the same trees as many as five times a season, maximizing the potential for quality by picking only the ripe cherries on each visit.

  8. Our highly trained roasters are dedicated to making sure the roast tastes right for every batch of coffee. They monitor air temperature and combine beans in perfectly blended proportions to bring out their most flavorful and distinctive characteristics. They also personally sample every batch.

  9. They have an automatic coffee program so coffee is mailed to your door and you never run out. My husband would love that!

  10. What they are doing to help the coffee growing farmers is a good thing. The Uzuri African Blend and the Arabian Mocha-Java are what I would like to try.

  11. The roasters check temperature and combine beans to make it taste perfect. They also taste each batch! Yum, what a fantastic job. Can you imagaine creating a perfect batch, smelling coffee raosting, and tasting each batch?! I love that they care enough to do a superior job!
    I also really like that this company cares for the people who work for them unlike so many companies-well, probably most companies, these days.
