    R.I.P. Alfred Peet

    Alfred Peet - founder of Peet's Coffee & Tea has passed on. He was a true harbinger of making high quality coffee for flavor, not just a caffeine kick. He was an inspiration to many who consider themselves coffee connoisseurs.

    R.I.P. Mr. Peet

    I'm not sure if they ever worked for him, but rumor is that the Starbucks guys "got their love for coffee" from Peets at Berkley (too bad they ended up going for money and away from the quality).

    At some point, Starbucks bought out Peets, but purposely left it alone to keep the quality what it was.

    Does anyone know if he was a cycling enthusiast? Anytime someone who has dedicated their life to smooth and delicious coffee dies, it's a tragic thing.

    I'm not sure, but they do sell a Peet's cycling jersey.

    I wish Charles Schultz would have, as I love roasted peanuts.

    Coffee/caffeine is very detrimental to the body.

    a) High end coffee is actually MUCH lower in caffeine than cheap stuff like Folgers.
    b) There is still conflicting evidence on that. Some sources report it as good (though I believe its bad over the long term)
    c) Aren't you the one who was getting bonkers on tea recently?

    edit: Yes, found this poll.
    Favorite tea
    and I think there was a thread asking about good teas too.
