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.
