Yippee!! Peet's Coffee arrives in S.C.

There is nothing better than an early morning stroll on the beach with a mug of steaming coffee in hand. My morning routine for the past couple of years on Seabrook Island has been such.

Today while ordering my Peet's coffee beans online, I discovered that Peet's is now being sold in grocery stores in parts of the U.S. As luck would have it, South Carolina is one of the states!

Yippee! Now I can buy my Peet's at Publix. The Publix located on Sam Rittenberg appears to be the closest store to Seabrook Island selling Peet's coffee.

For those of you who may be unaware of Peet's coffee, it was started in 1966 by Alfred Peet in Berkley, CA. Mr. Peet actually started importing tea before he got into coffee beans (a fact told to me this past weekend by a barista at the Evanston, IL Peet's coffee shop).

Peet's is the originator of "designer" coffee. Mr. Peet trained the fellows who went on to start Starbuck's.

Oh how I love a good cup of coffee. Thanks for the heads up!

From their site map, it looks like we have plenty of options over here in Mt. Pleasant.

Maybe I'll see if they wanna advertise on my shemcreeksc.com site :-)
