Posted Sun Oct 17, 2010, 2:53pm Subject: Approximating Major Dickinson's Blend
I wonder if anybody here has tried to approximate Peet's Dickinson Blend. I was actually at Peet's today. They were holding an informal little class on brewing the perfect cup of coffee. The employee asked if there were any questions and half joking I asked what regions were blended to make Major Dickinson's. He paused and then actually rattled off about 7 regions. I thought this was a trade secret so I was pretty surprised. Of course I don't know the proportions. I wasn't taking notes, but the components I remember are Arabian Mocha Java, Brazil, Costa Rica, and I think Guatemala. It would be near impossible to get the proportions just right, but the journey in that direction might produce something interesting.
