Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I think that this article is very accurate. I am a former employee at Peet's, and I have worked there for approx 5 years. The pressure there is high, and injuries do happen very often. When I started at Peet's I was in awe of how concerned they were about freshness, and artisan products. I yearned to be a barrista, because I wanted to tell the people how great we are. After Alfred Peet died, I felt that many things went to chaos. Even this year many of my regular customers have been complaining about the most expensive coffee; Arabian Mocha Sanani. Its quality has dropped so much that they turned to kenya or major D's blend.
Even though this article shows many of the negative aspects of Peet's, I have had many excellent co-workers, that are some really great friends.
So I want to thank Peet's Coffee and Tea for being a wonderful company for the 5 years that I have been there.
