Peet's Coffee Launches Holiday Menu

    Industry News | November 1, 2022

    Step aside bubbly and bourbon, the holiday menu from Peet’s Coffee is about to debut. The menu launching November 2, leads with a classic: Peet’s Holiday Spice Latte with customizable twists and other returning favorites. The menu is available for a limited time only at participating Peet’s Coffeebars and via mobile order with the Peet’s app through January 3, 2023.

    According to the artisan roaster, coffee rivals champagne and bourbon for top sips of the season. Peet’s coffee sales each November and December across online, Coffeebar, and retail/CPG purchases - combined with a record high of U.S. coffee consumption - signal a winter season made merrier by the comforts of coffee. 

    Coffee Consumption (Even Iced) Heats Up During the Holidays

    More than 2.5 billion cups of Peet’s coffee are consumed on average during the holidays, meaning that over 200 million more cups of Peet’s coffee are enjoyed in November and December. That includes iced coffee, with more than 35 percent of the company’s Coffeebar purchases now served over ice. Peet’s experts point to increasing consumer demand in hand-crafted beverages, a continuing surge in iced coffee orders, gifting occasions, and increased at-home coffee preparation fueling higher seasonal consumption.  

    “The holidays bring people together and now, more than ever, those moments are likely happening over a cup of coffee,” says Jessica Buttimer, Vice President of Brand at Peet’s Coffee. “Most of us can’t imagine getting through the holidays without coffee; we think of it as the indispensable support beverage, right there when you need a break from shopping or for caffeinating your marathon decorating nights.” 

    Holiday Spice and Everything Nice

    Starting November 2, Peet’s favorite holiday beverages return for November and December only, with a new sweet take on a classic taste: Peet’s Holiday Spice Cold Brew Oat Latte with Brown Sugar Jelly. Peet’s Holiday Spice Latte mingles custom notes of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg with hand-pulled Espresso Forte and freshly steamed milk.

    Peet’s brings back holiday magic in a cup with its traditional Peppermint Mocha, iced or hot, featuring sweet peppermint with Peet’s signature house-made chocolate sauce. Bakery items include sweet and spicy, pillowy-soft gingerbread and artisan baked goods at participating coffeebars. As an anytime treat, Peet’s collection of holiday sweets are available in coffeebars and online with selections including Peet’s Chocolate Covered Cherries and Peet’s Maple Bourbon Chocolate Pecans.

    The Year’s Best Beans

    Peet’s Holiday Blend is the gift that coffee lovers eagerly await all year. This blend brims with holiday spirit, as coffees selected from the world’s finest regions come together in the year’s most celebratory cup. Velvety chocolate notes from Guatemala and Panama follow fragrant East African aromatics of candied zest from Kenya. All are brought to fullness by the spice and heft of Indo-Pacific Sumatra beans. Peet’s Holiday Blend is available in Peet’s Coffeebars, online and at retailers nationwide. This fan-favorite blend is also available in Decaf and K-Cup pods.
