Just joined this community. I obviously love peets coffee (not such a big tea drinker). I've grown up with the Solano store, but I am quite partial to the Walnut Square.
So anyway, funny story:
Last year, a girl in one of my classes did a paper on coffee shops of the East Bay, and when she was presenting it in class, she started talking about, "these really weird people named peetniks, and they only drink peets coffee, and they are totally obsessed with it, and they even buy it and bring it on vacation with them!" And I just sat there thinking, "Until about 5 seconds ago, I thought everyone brought coffee with them on vacation.
I thought it was really funny.
