Peet’s Coffee unveiled its 2020 holiday offerings that invoke notions of wintery snowcap mountains and sensational aromas of the season. Bringing some reinvented traditions to Peetniks everywhere, this year’s lineup features the debut of the Snowcap Peppermint Cold Brew and Snowcap Mint Matcha Latte as well as the return of the popular Holiday Spice Latte and Peppermint Mocha. Additional holiday offerings include the arrival of the annual Holiday Blend coffee and a Small Batch Curated Subscription for home coffee brewing.
Creating a new twist on holiday traditions, Peet’s introduces festive seasonal beverages that combine all of your favorite festive flavors in a chilly concoction. Available from October 30, 2020 to January 5, 2021, the lineup features the debut of:
Snowcap Mint Matcha Latte (Iced or Hot): Destined to be a new holiday classic, creamy and refreshing iced mint matcha latte topped with a lightly sweet snowcap.
Snowcap Peppermint Cold Brew (Iced Only): New snowcap adds a subtle sweetness to the bold, juicy peppermint Baridi cold brew, making the perfect holiday pick-me-up.
“Our new Snowcap beverages include an airy, lightly-sweetened topping that creates a unique velvety experience reminiscent of the snowy peaks of Winter,” says Patrick Main, Senior R&D Manager, Peet’s Coffee. “We are excited about the sensory experience our new Snowcap topping delivers. Combined with peppermint, a beloved holiday flavor, this beverage ultimately brings forth a truly delicious and unique flavor.”
Returning favorites include:
Holiday Spice Latte (Iced or Hot): Hand-pulled espresso, freshly steamed milk, and an aromatic mixture of holiday baking spices that delivers cozy notes of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, and nutmeg.
Peppermint Mocha (Iced or Hot): Hand-pulled espresso infused with rich house-made chocolate sauce and the fragrant flavor of peppermint, topped with a cloud of whipped cream.
Dark Chocolate Orange Mocha (Iced or Hot): As part of Peet’s Members Only Menu, this feature is only available to those who have the Peet’s app and are part of the Peetnik Rewards program. Hand-pulled espresso and freshly steamed milk blended with decadent chocolate, unsweetened Dutch cocoa, and sweet citrus topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa.
Delivering delight to the season, Peet’s 2020 Holiday Blend is the highly anticipated coffee Peetniks have been waiting for all year. The exciting offering pairs two Guatemalan coffees, a washed and natural Ethiopian, and a sumptuous spice-laden Sumatra, for one extraordinary blend. Each sip is complex and warmly spiced, embracing notes of candied fruit, dark chocolate, and Indonesian spices.
“Double chocolate, extra fragrant, and ultra-plush, our annual Holiday Blend is as much a celebration of the festive season as it is the diverse communities and regions it comes from,” says Doug Welsh, Roastmaster, Peet’s Coffee. “Offering a fresh and flavorful cup of holiday cheer, our annual blend is a joyful gift of the season itself.”
