As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program, I was selected to receive two bags of Peet’s new medium roast coffees- Cafe Domingo and Cafe Solano, a great plastic coffee thermos, and several $2.00 off Peet’s coffee. Pete’s coffee is an artistan-crafted, deep-roastd coffee, that’s been around for 45 years! Both Cafe Domingo and Cafe Solano blend are medium roasted and have unique taste profiles- perfect to pair with brunch or dessert foods this fall!
Cafe Domingo is a blend of Central and South American coffees that is smooth, balanced, and medium-bodied with more pure coffee taste. I personally like a sweets, so I brewed a mug full of Cafe Domingo to pair with a glazed crueller donut. I added just a pinch of sugar and Coffee-mate. The Cafe Domingo brew was slightly sweet and I tasted hints of toffee. Also, the coffee went really well with the donut because the coffee wasn’t too sweet, so it didn’t overpower the donut.
My boyfriend, Danny, likes more savory and food that’s not very sweet. He brewed a mug full of the Cafe Solano. The Cafe Solano is a blend of African, Indo-Pacific, and South American coffees. He also added some Coffee-Mate to his cup. I tasted it and liked it as well! The Cafe Solano was very aromatic and though had light floral flavors, wasn’t overwhelming with the flavors. Danny paired this up with a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. The coffee complimented the sandwich because it wasn’t sweet and was light, something you need with something as heavy and savory as a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich.
I recommend Pete’s coffee to anyone that wants to try something different and unique in flavor. There is also an online coupon you can use towards your purchase. This coupon is up to a $3.00 value when shared with three friends. If anybody wants a $2.00 coupon off Pete’s’ coffee, let me know and I’ll send them out to you right away!
