Available in 12 Ounce Bags
Minimum Total Cart Order is 2 Bags
From the shadows of Mount Kilimanjaro near the Kenyan border under the shade of banana trees comes the hand sorted Tanzania Peaberry. Coffee beans come from coffee cherries – from which the plants are self-pollinating. Each cherry typically develops two seeds. A coffee bean is one half of the two seeds in a cherry. The flat sides are facing each other in the cherry. Peaberries occur when a coffee develops a single egg-shaped bean. All coffees have peaberries, but they are typically graded out as a defect in the screening and milling process. In this case they are specifically sought out. Tanzania Peaberry produces a light-to-medium, slightly acidic, bright cup in body, with a clear hint of wine, chocolate and fruit.
Tanzania has a long tradition of creating the mystique that “the best of two beans is contained in one” – like (we believe) – a healthy marriage.
