Coffee Roasters who supply chain grocers

I'm trying to track down Peerless coffee beans. Could swear I bought them at a local seldom-visited Von's in my town, just before Christmas. Then in January, I tried to get more, but the bin display was gone, and SafewaySelect was in its place. No one at the store has been able to tell me. I emailed Peerless, and they don't list Safeway as a retailer. (Nor anywhere else near me)

They make a very decent decaf dark roast, rich but not bitter. So hard to find decent decaf, but Doc says I must. (I'd prefer not to mail order it.)

Does anyone know who supplies the coffee for Von's/Safeway Select brand?

Since Safeway is headquartered in the Bay Area, I'm thinking it might be one of the big roasters there.

Thanks

    Can't help you with the Vons source but I can give a recommendation for an excellent decaf dark french roast - Capricorn Coffees - 353 Tenth Street San Fran 415-621-8500. Not sure if they do any retail outlets though.

    There are a couple others that roast in San Fran but I can't remember specific names right now.

      thanks--I'm not close enough to the BA to try theirs--but I'll file that away should I visit SF.

      As I recall you are in SLO county. The local Foods for Less has Peerless Coffee as does our SLO Scolari's. Both at about $ 7 a pound.
