Peet’s Coffee & Tea targeted by lawsuit alleging fraud

French press coffees have 25 percent less liquid than advertised, suit claims

A lawsuit filed in Illinois last week alleges that Peet’s Coffee & Tea knowingly overcharges customers who order French press coffee.

The lawsuit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of Illinois customer Robert Garrett, and potentially other French press drinkers. Garrett alleges that Peet’s in-store signage advertises its French press coffee as containing 12- and 32-ounces of coffee, but the actual result is at least 25 percent less than advertised.
