In 1753 in Joure, the Netherlands, Egbert Douwes founded his first coffee outlet. Over a century later in 1895, in Bremen, Germany, Johann Jacobs opened his first grocery business. Then in 1966 in Berkeley, California, U.S., Alfred Peet opened his first Peet's coffee store. Today we are the world’s largest pure-play coffee & tea company by revenue active in more than 100 markets around the world.
