I suppose that means that a cup of Peet's coffee is going to jump up to $2.00 now--to pay for all the lawyers' fees. Well .. maybe they will start selling good German beer too. Not certain what the Germans know about Coffee .. but they do know beer.

I was so sad when I came home from work today and my brother broke the news to me of the sale of Peets he said that Star Bucks tried to accquire them and after reading this article I am so happy that JAB is purchasing them Thank God, there is a coffee God. I love & always have loved PEETS Coffee they are by far, the best coffee & teas in the World to me. Please do NOT change a thing.
