    Being a “Peetnick” for well over a decade (and with a coffee budget nearing $100 per month) I was ecstatic to see Major at Costco. I literally gasped when I rounded the corner and saw it there on the shelf. My joy was short-lived, however. For some reason the Peet’s from Costco is disgusting. At first I thought I got a bum bag that sat out in the sun too long or something. On my next trip a few weeks later I bought another bag that had been roasted less than two weeks prior, but it too was awful. By awful I mean like stale Folgers awful, not as in “just a little short of perfection.” The Peet’s from the little 12 oz. bags in the grocery store is light years better than the Costco Peet’s. I don’t know if it’s something Costco is doing to the pallets, or if Peet’s is intentionally using cheap beans or something for bags destined for Costco. All I know is that it’s disgusting.

    My advice is to check the smell from the bag before you buy. The bad batch doesn’t have that Peet’s smell that any Peetnick knows as it fills your car on the way home from Peet’s with a fresh pound or two. Just press your thumbs on either side of the vacuum button at the front of the bag to force a little air out. If it smells like stale Folgers, it’s going to be bad.

      hi Jason,
      Thanks for the detailed feedback. It’s quite shocking to hear that the quality of Peet’s Coffee at Costco is less than desirable.Have you tried contacting Peet’s? I’m curious to see what they’d say. I don’t think they would intentionally lower the quality of their coffee coz after all, it’s still their name on the label. Why would they ruin their own reputation? We haven’t tried this coffee yet but you’ve piqued my interest. I will try that trick you suggested and “smell” the coffee the next time I’m at the store 🙂

    Hi, does anyone know which Costo’s are selling the Peet’s Coffee line? I’ve been to a couple that did not carry it. Obviously, it’s only at certain locations. Looking for Item # 670441. Thanks!

    • Olli

      hi JayTee,
      Not sure if Costco is still carrying this item or if we’ve seen it this year. Will check next time we’re in the store. It would help if you specify your location or the stores you’ve already been to.
      Thanks,
      Olli

        I have found it before @ the Orange County, Laguna Niguel Costco (southern california). I’ve checked The Azusa and Rancho Cucamongo stores, who do not stock it. I just called Costco in nearby Alhambra, CA location and their store apparently is still stocking it. Thanks!

          hi JayTee,
          Glad you found it! Thanks for checking back with the locations. It may help other Costco shoppers locate this item as well.

  • Costco in Gilroy had it 2 weeks ago. They also had another variety of Peet’s that was organic, but this one was ground, not whole bean.

      hi Larry,
      They’re still available in the south bay area Costco as well. The organic version is the Gaia blend and like you said, it’s the ground coffee and not whole bean.

      • Thanks. Since I live in the Las Vegas area, I asked if they planned on selling Peet’s there. They said no. Oh, well. I can get it in a few supermarkets here, but only the small 12 oz pkgs, which are about $10-$12. It’s too expensive to have Peet’s ship the coffee to me too.
