Peet's Coffee & Tea opens downtown with a benefit for breast cancer research

A new Peet's Coffee & Tea outlet opened today in the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, at 1550 Court Place -- and from 1 to 3 p.m., the hotel will be giving 100 percent of the proceeds from all Peet's sales to the Pink Tie Affair, a November 6 event benefiting the Denver affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

The Peet's outlet in the Sheraton will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and will feature the hand-roasted coffees that have been a Peet's signature since the California-based chain got its start back in 1966. Find more information on Peet's at
