    Garuda Blend®

    A dark blend coffee from Indo-Pacific with nutty, chocolate, and earthy taste notes.

    A blend of the finest single-origin Indo-Pacific coffees that celebrates the diverse flavors of the islands.

    How It Tastes

    Full-bodied, broad, and aromatic. Richly textured with earthy, nutty, character.

    History

    Created by Alfred Peet and long a favorite of Peet’s baristas, Garuda is one of our first blends. It originates in the islands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia, where each single-origin coffee develops distinctly different flavor characteristics due to the unique production and processing methods across the archipelago. Hand-pulped village coffees impart a rustic earthiness and nutty flavors; fully washed beans lend a lively spark; the blend exudes syrupy consistency and is infused with tropical airs. We think it makes an excellent espresso, and we know it makes a big, satisfying cup.

    Worth Noting

    We don’t know if the mythical bird that is the namesake of the blend visited each of the coffee islands, from Sumatra to Sulawesi to Java to Timor, and on to Irian Jaya/Papua New Guinea and the spice islands of the Moluccas, but we craft Garuda to reflect their diversity.
