“His Influence Cannot Be Underestimated”

Alfred Peet, founder of Peet’s Coffee and “leader of a coffee revolution”, died last week. Corby Kummer commented that “his influence cannot be underestimated.” Can there be any higher tribute?

Menlo Park was the second Peet’s location – opening in 1971 – and remains the best place in town for coffee and beans. Mike Dawson, a long-time Peet’s Menlo Park staffer who cheered us on many mornings, passed away earlier this year.
