SAN FRANCISCO— Williams Sonoma, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands, announced a collaboration with Peet’s Coffee to debut Peet’s Coffee Bark, a delicious coffee-infused take on one of Williams Sonoma’s most popular and iconic products.
In 1966 in Berkeley, California, Alfred Peet introduced an artisan coffee movement with his rich, superior quality roasts and complex blends. The freshly roasted Café Domingo beans in Williams Sonoma’s new Peet’s Coffee Bark are expertly combined with another San Francisco Bay Area favorite—Guittard Chocolate Company—for an irresistible two-layer confection. The bottom layer provides a mocha flavor and a bit of texture with rich dark chocolate infused with finely ground coffee. On top, a generous mix of creamy white chocolate and robust coffee grinds for added crispiness completes the bark. Fans of Williams Sonoma’s iconic Peppermint Bark and coffee lovers alike will find the chocolate and coffee combination to be their new favorite treat.
“Given how much our guests enjoy the combination of rich espresso and house-made chocolate sauce in our Caffe Mocha, we sought new ways to bring this beverage to life,” said Gretchen Koch, Senior Director of Marketing and Innovation, Peet’s Coffee. “A Peet’s Coffee Bark made with our Café Domingo Blend and combined with Guittard is the perfect expression of that mocha indulgence. Williams Sonoma is famous for recipes as intensely rich and layered as our own coffee and we are proud to partner on a limited-edition bark that can be enjoyed by anyone with a sweet tooth or as a gift for family or friends.”
Priced at $24.95 per tin, the Peet’s Coffee Bark is available in William Sonoma stores and online while supplies last. For more information about Williams Sonoma’s collaboration with Peet’s, please visit www.williams-sonoma.com.
