Two unlikely Bay Area brands have joined forces.
Peets Coffee & Tea has launched a coffee in honor of the Golden State Warriors basketball team called Warriors Grounds.
The formula for Warriors Grounds, a combination of single origin coffees, was decided through taste tests by fans. According to the Peet's website, the winning combination is "a heavy-duty blend based on the earthy, syrupy, teak and tobacco-like qualities of Sumatra, plus the balance, full body, and brightness of Java and Papua New Guinea. Another consistent crowd favorite is a sparkling, spicy blend with origins in Latin America. To both of these we added a twist—the same twist—the silky sweet magic of Kenya."
The limited edition blend will be available until May 30. The company will donate 5 percent of the proceeds to the Warriors Community Foundation.
San Francisco Business Times reported that Warriors Grounds made its debut on Wednesday when Peet's gave away 100 free bags of the blend at the final regular season game at Oracle Arena.
