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.
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.
