Peet’s Coffee East African Uzuri Blend

Peet’s Coffee has a delicious new blend of coffee called Uzuri from East Africa.

Already well known for its quality blends, Peet’s introduces Uzuri African Blend-a coffee bold beyond flavor. Uzuri, meaning “excellent and beautiful” in Swahili, was named by the Kenyan, Tanzanian and Rwandan farmers who grow the beans.

Peet’s collaborated with the nonprofit TechnoServe to bring the distinct flavors of East Africa, the birthplace of coffee, to American coffee enthusiasts while creating a sustainable business model for thousands of farmers and their communities. Through farmer training and improved processing, the farmers are now producing coffee that meets Peet’s strict quality standards, earning them an estimated 30 percent more for their crop.

My husband and I enjoyed this coffee (thanks to Drew for sending some samples).  It’s nice when a product *is* good and tastes good, too!

Now when is a Pete’s Coffee shop going to come to NYC?
