Founder of Peet's Coffee, Alfred Peet Dies at 87


Founder of Peet’s Coffee and Tea and pioneer in the coffee shop world, Alfred Peet died last week at the age of 87. He was born in Holland and was the son of a coffee and tea merchant where he learned the trade and learned to appreciate what high quality coffee and tea could be like. He moved to the US and opened his first coffee shop in 1966 in Berkley, CA. As the original store flourished with its high quality coffee leading its reputation, he opened up more shops in the San Francisco area.

Peet’s Coffee and Tea now has over 150 cafes and has its coffee distributed to much of the US.
